Hello, Serkan is here.
This is my second post in the DEV community. Currently, I am making monthly earnings with websites developed with PHP and Python. But I am sympathetic to Golang. And I'd created a module for Go :)
While trying to learn Go, I realized that I was not able to reach the speed I used to be. I think this was due to the fact that I could not break the habit of coding with PHP for about 15 years.
After realizing this, I asked myself if I could write a module that could speed the transition from PHP to Go for both myself and beginners. So I could have speed up my learning process.
This is the starting spark of phpfuncs module :)
The module is 4 days old and I chose the MIT license. I rebuilt some PHP code with Go. During naming, I tried to use the same patterns as possible. For now, there are 93 functions (math, file system and general functions), 2 types and one constant depending on these functions.
You can check all functions on modules pkg.go.dev page.
I take care to use the explanations and definitions available on PHP.net. I want to complete this module as fast as I can and provide convenience to software developers like me who switch from PHP.
You can also review and contribute to the module if you wish. I add an example of reading a file below. We can do this in the same way as we do with PHP (I haven't added the file writing function to the module yet).
go get github.com/serkanalgur/phpfuncs
As you can see in the example below, the plugin allows someone who has used PHP to use almost the same function structure in a very simple way.
I organized the function names with underscores according to Go. I created some normal function names differently in order to avoid possible errors. For example, the name
fread() should normally be
Fread() but I created it as
I hope I can help developers with this module.
Thank you for your reading.
