I was developing a small project ( app for Android) in Cordova ( https://cordova.apache.org ), and this project one of the requirements was to send notifications push ( push notifications ) to the application through the Service Cloud Messaging Google Firebase ( https://console.firebase.google.com ).
The procedure for implementing this task is relatively simple. Just access the Google Firebase console, create a new project, enter the information (name, package, etc …), configure it for Android and finally download the file google-services.json
Basically all the main programming languages currently have ORM frameworks (Object Relational Mapping), which help a lot the development of applications (under the object orientation paradigm – OOP) that persist in relational databases (like MySQL, Postgre, SQL Server, among others).
The function of an ORM framework is to abstract objects from a database (tables, columns, relationships, and so forth), map them, and make them readable within a project being developed in OOP.
The Composer (https://getcomposer.org/) is a dependency manager (packages) widely used in language PHP and provides many facilities, since it is responsible for checking, download to engage our project all the “libs” of third parties that we will need.
These “libs”, when downloaded by Composer, are grouped within a directory called “vendor”. In addition, a file called “autoload.php” is also created in this folder, responsible for “loading” all the classes we need to use. Basically, all I have to do is import “autoload.php” into a file of my project and I will have access to all classes of “libs” downloaded by Composer.
In this video on the CodeIgniter 4 framework, I show you how to create validation rules for a “model”, thus enabling the data to go through a check before being inserted (insert) or updated (update).
