Spice up PHP applications with OpenLaszlo

Nicholas Chase an I have just written a three part tutorial for the IBM DeveloperWorks web site, about using OpenLaszlo and PHP to develop a distributed Knock Knock Joke (Ha! or Not!) application.

This "Spice up PHP applications with OpenLaszlo" tutorial series shows you how to use OpenLaszlo to create a more interactive interface for your PHP applications and how to use PHP to create more dynamic OpenLaszlo applications. It requires a basic understanding of -- or willingness to learn -- XML, JavaScript, and PHP. Each is well worth knowing for its own merits, plus they plug and play together nicely, since they're all based on synergistic open standards.

OPML Site Map Based on Drupal Taxonomy

I've just implemented a Drupal module that renders an OPML site map, based on the sitemenu taxonomy tree.

Each taxonomy term has an outline node, which contains child nodes. The first child shows the term's description, and has a link to the term's web page. Subsequent children are links to articles directly related to that term, followed by recursive outlines of sub-terms.

Dave Winer put my OPML site map feed into his OPML World Outline, where you can browse it as html, and OPML Search has automatically indexed the content on my site! That's quite cool, and it's just the tip of the iceberg -- many interesting applications are possible!
