PHP Apprentice is a project for sharing knowledge about the PHP programming language. It is an online book that currently includes pages for learning the basics of PHP programming. PHP Apprentice is a work in progress so any constructive feedback is appreciated.
PHP Apprentice is built with Hugo. To build the site locally, clone the repository, install Hugo and run
hugo server with a terminal in the project root. All of the site pages are written in Markdown and stored in the content directory. To create a new page, the hugo generator will use the default template to generate the markdown file in the content folder:
hugo new test.md.
Moving forward, there are three sections I would like to add to the site:
The web section will outline the basics of HTTP, how to handle requests and response and generating HTML.
The database section will cover PDO setup, fetching data and securely running queries.
Advanced will hold deeper PHP topics like traits, closures, Composer, auto-loading and namespaces.
If you would like to request a topic or see one section before another, feel free to open an issue.
