Creating apps with PHP blocks

Afterword

PHPlattenbau gives you just a few simple PHP blocks. But even this small library lets you create a wide variety of useful applications. Using these blocks, I built several PHP applications that I rely upon in my daily work. This includes the Linkalot bookmark manager [6], the Weather and notes tool for recording weather conditions and notes [7], and the micro.sth publishing application [8]. With a bit of creative thinking, you can put PHPlattenbau to many other practical uses.
