Nominees to win the award of September of 2016

Class: PHP RTF Tools
Description: Parse and generate RTF documents using templates
Author: Christian Vigh
Country: France
Comment: Comparing word processing documents programmatically to see what was changed is a hard problem because you need to parse the documents and determine how to compare them.

This package provides an alternative solution to simplify this task.

Many Word processing documents can export documents in RTF (Rich Text Format). This is a text based format based on marks that identify different values in the documents like fonts, text formatting attributes, colors, etc..

If you save your Word processor documents in the RTF format, this package can easily render the document data in a beautified way that make it easier to compare document using a diff-like text comparison program.

Class: CakePHP 2 Zend Service Manager integration
Description: Integrates the Zend Service Manager with CakePHP 2
Author: Nerijus
Country: Lithuania
Comment: Generic dependency injection container interfaces have allowed to use services of one framework in applications that use another framework.

This package can integrate the Zend Service Manager with CakePHP 2 it can be used as a CakePHP service.

Class: Simple Logger
Description: Log messages and view log filtered files
Author: Joseluis Laso
Country: Spain
Comment: Logging actions is an important functionality that many applications implement.

There are many components to implement logging, but this package goes further by providing a means to search and filter logs according to a given criteria of interest like the log level, date or text in the log message.

Class: morgen
Description: Generate icon images for multiple platforms
Author: Alexander Selifonov
Country: Russian Federation
Comment: Developers that have tried to create applications that should run both on the Web, Android and iOS devices know that you need to have a different sets of application image icons that looks well on different resolutions.

This package provides a solution by automatically generating icon sets for different devices and sizes.

It supports generating icons from a SVG source graphics if you can run a program like Inkscape to convert images from SVG to the PNG format.

Class: Noter
Description: Create and manage notes shared between users
Author: Martin Latter
Country: United Kingdom
Comment: Many teams need to collaborate sharing information between members.

There are many applications on the Web that can be used for this purpose. However, they require that the teams send information over the Internet to be stored in the infrastructure of a different company.

This package implements a simple notes sharing system that can be implemented on a intranet, so no information is sent to outside the company network.

Class: PHP Form Encryption
Description: Encrypt and decrypt forms with AES and RSA
Author: Francisco del Aguila
Country: Spain
Comment: When you need to submit security sensitive data to a Web site, you should always use encrypted connections. However, over time older SSL versions have been discovered to be vulnerable, to the point that SSL is not longer synonym of security.

Nowadays you should use at least TLS and we don't know until when the current TLS versions will be safe to use to protect the transmission of private data.

This class provides an additional layer of security by using JavaScript to encrypt data before transmitting form values using RSA public key, and then having the server to decrypt the data with a private key.

This way, eventual man in the middle attacks will not be able to decrypt the data because they don't know what is the private key that the server uses to decrypt it.

Class: PHP Component Event
Description: Implement a immutable event
Author: nvb
Country: Germany
Comment: Event handling is a form of integration different programming components by registering one object to handle events that occur in the other message.

Events objects just contain details of what happened in the source object but once they are emitted, the event data should not be changed.

This package implements an event system on which the actual event object is immutable because once it is created, it cannot be changed.

Class: PHP Ignore JSON Key
Description: Remove certain key values from JSON strings
Author: Janjan
Country: Philippines
Comment: JSON is nowadays used by many applications and APIs to exchange data in a format that can be supported by many languages.

Sometimes you need to do some processing to filter unwanted entries in JSON data structure. Usually you would use json_decode parse the data, traverse the parsed data and filter the unwanted information, and regenerate it with json_encode.

This class offers a simpler solution. It can take a JSON string and removed the unwanted entries from the JSON string directly.

This way you do not need to perform traversal of data and custom processing to remove the unwanted data.

Class: PHP Unicode to Bijoy Converter
Description: Convert Bijoy ANSI text from Unicode Bengali
Author: Miraz Mac
Country: Bangladesh
Comment: Bijoy is a character set encoding for representing Bengali text.

Bengali text characters are supported by Unicode.

Author: Juraj Puchk
