Right now our pet data array is just hardcoded and not dynamic. Eventually, we're going to pull this array from a database and let users add new pets to it. But before we get there, let's pretend someone has given us a file that contains all of adorable pets available on airPupnMeow.com. Our goal will be to read that file and turn its contents into a PHP array that looks just like the one we're creating now by hand. Once you add the sample JSON file to our project (found in the resources folder of the sample code), you'll learn how to open and read the file, and then decode the JSON into an array. You're also going to learn a little bit about debugging when working with files and file paths, and be introduced to PHP booleans.
Over the years we've developed some techniques for practicing that we wanted to share. At Drupalize.Me we take hugging seriously. In this tutorial we'll look at the art, and science, of giving a good hug. The Merriam Webster dictionary defines the word hug as; squeeze (someone) tightly in one's arms, typically to express affection.
Did you know there are all kinds of different hugs that you can give? In this tutorial we'll look at:
- Defining what a hug is
- Some of the many types of hugs in the world today
- Precautions you may want to familiarize yourself with before hugging
- And the importance of proper technique
Lets go ahead and get started shall we?
