How to send push notifications easily?

Hi there! Here we are, it's back to school time, and as the first article of the season, we're going to talk about push notifications. Here, we're not going to use the basic example of a notification that consists of sending a "successful backup" notification to your own phone, but we're going to talk about a notification that is sent by an application that keeps me going ... So, we're talking about a "product" in production and used every day by thousands of users, but there's a but: it'...

If you're like me, you must have ideas every day for projects to develop, code and implement. Most of them will never see the light of day and will remain at the idea stage? But sometimes (fortunately) some of them do become a little more concrete, and for that it can be useful to have a POC. A what? The benefits of a POC A POC stands for Proof of Concept, in other words, a version capable of proving that your concept is functional and can materialize. In short, it's an ultra...

Hello 🙂, If you follow this blog at all, you'll know that I really like the Symfony framework. In fact, it's my preferred choice for all my projects (even this blog ...). When you're doing web development, you'll probably have noticed that there's a lot of repetition. Imagine you want to create a simple web application that lets users create "to-dos" and save them - yes, it's a classic... ? Before creating your to-do application, you'll need to (non-exhaustive list) : Cre...

Hello ?, After Josselin's article on languages and Sylius, I'd like to take you through the framework in its entirety... Have you ever come across a complicated e-commerce project? Or rather, have you ever found yourself unable to adapt or customize your e-commerce site the way you want? As if you had to adapt to the solution rather than the solution adapting to you? Does this sound familiar? If so, I've got something for you: Sylius. Have you ever heard of it? No ? In any cas...

Hello, hello? Have you ever watched a child playing with "Legos"? Stacked one on top of the other, they create complex structures that are both unique and fundamentally similar, because they all share the same basic elements... What if I told you that playing with Legos is a bit like our topic for today... Welcome to the concept of object-oriented programming (OOP)! It may sound like an obscure concept, a maze of jargon designed to confuse, but fear not, it will! We're about to emba...

Salutation voyageur? (what? what plagia?), On this blog, there hasn't yet been an article on chatGPT, why? Quite simply, because if it's to tell you the same thing you've already seen elsewhere, there's no point. So I've been waiting for something interesting and useful to tell you, and it looks like I've got one. If you're using ChatGPT, you must have accumulated quite a few prompts for communicating with it, and then after a while you realize that "copy/paste" isn't the most practical...

Hello there, This week's article comes from an observation I made recently. Before, in Chrome, when you visited a site that offered OpenSearch, it automatically added it to the browser's search engines, so all you had to do was type "a keyword" + space and start searching directly from the browser's omnibox. This browser behavior has recently changed (perhaps for the better, as it prevents anything and everything from being added to the browser). Now, in Chromium (and therefore Chrome and...

Hello ?, This week's article is based on something that happened to me recently. During an Ubuntu server update, it seems that the bind9 package, after the update, started to crash after a while. The problem is that on this machine, I need DNS resolution, as it hosts services that need to complicate with other online services like Stripe. So I end up with a call informing me that when it comes to entering the bank card on this Symfony application, well, it doesn't display the form reques...

For once, I'm not going to talk purely about web development, but rather about the digital lifestyle? A few years ago, there was a lot of talk about online banking. I must admit that I fell for it at the time (and following a lot of advice too, because marketing isn't everything?) and created an account with N26. The conclusion? I still use it as a secondary account today. Online banking VS traditional banking Tech people understand each other when it comes to getting things done...

Hello there, This week, we're tackling a big topic. This article follows on from " Why isn't MYSQL a search engine? In the latter, I talked about Elasticsearch, a popular indexed database engine that gets the job done. This week, we're going to talk about Typesense. If you visit this blog from time to time, you'll know that I like to tell you about technologies I've spent time working on, and Typesense is one of them, having been a big part of the project I'm currently working on.
