Using Interfaces to Write Better PHP Code


In programming, it’s important to make sure that your code is readable, maintainable, extendable and easily testable. One of the ways that we can improve all of these factors in our code is by using interfaces.

Intended Audience

This article is aimed at developers who have a basic understanding of OOP (object oriented programming) concepts and using inheritance in PHP. If you know how to use inheritance in your PHP code, this article should hopefully be understandable.

What Are Interfaces?

In basic terms, interfaces are just descriptions of what a class should do. They can be used to ensure that any class implementing the interface will include each public method that is defined inside it.

Interfaces can be:

  • Used to define public methods for a class.
  • Used to define constants for a class.

Interfaces cannot be:

  • Instantiated on their own.
  • Used to define private or protected methods for a class.
  • Used to define properties for a class.

How to use highchart in php with example

Highchart provides feature to draw different type of charts in our web application. Here, in this example i will let you know that how to use highchart in php application.

In this example, we will create chart using php and mysql. Actually highchart provides javascript library to create charts. We will only need to implement that library in our application.

We will need some data to generate chart, so here we will use mysql database and database query to fetch data from database.

So basucally here we will leran to implement simple dynamic column chart using highcharts library in php and ofcourse will use mysql database.

For for that, first thing we will need to create a database and tables where we will put some data. So for full example let’s follow the steps as given below.

Step 1: Create Database

Here for example, i will create a database named shopping and under this database we will need to create some tables, here i will create only two table one is to stroe customers information and another to store orders.

So run the following query in your query window.

Create customers table



  `name` varchar(30) NOT NULL,

  `email` varchar(30) NOT NULL,

  `phone` varchar(15) NOT NULL,

  `created_at` timestamp NOT NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,

  PRIMARY KEY (`id`)


Now you will to put some data into these two tables. You can put any data accoring to the column and your need. After putting data we can be able to show the chart according the the data.

Step 2: Create database configuration

Now we will need to create configuration file. So let’s create a new db configuration file **db_config.php **and put the following code into this file.


  $dbHost = "localhost";
  $dbDatabase = "shopping";
  $dbUser = "root";
        $dbPassword = ""; 

  $mysqli = mysqli_connect($dbHost, $dbUser, $dbPasswrod, $dbDatabase);

Static Code Analysis: What It Is? How to Use It?

Static code analysis refers to the technique of approximating the runtime behavior of a program. In other words, it is the process of predicting the output of a program without actually executing it.

Lately, however, the term “Static Code Analysis” is more commonly used to refer to one of the applications of this technique rather than the technique itself — program comprehension — understanding the program and detecting issues in it (anything from syntax errors to type mismatches, performance hogs likely bugs, security loopholes, etc.). This is the usage we’d be referring to throughout this post.

“The refinement of techniques for the prompt discovery of error serves as well as any other as a hallmark of what we mean by science.”

  • J. Robert Oppenheimer


We cover a lot of ground in this post. The aim is to build an understanding of static code analysis and to equip you with the basic theory, and the right tools so that you can write analyzers on your own.

We start our journey with laying down the essential parts of the pipeline which a compiler follows to understand what a piece of code does. We learn where to tap points in this pipeline to plug in our analyzers and extract meaningful information. In the latter half, we get our feet wet, and write four such static analyzers, completely from scratch, in Python.

Note that although the ideas here are discussed in light of Python, static code analyzers across all programming languages are carved out along similar lines. We chose Python because of the availability of an easy to use ast module, and wide adoption of the language itself.

How does it all work?

Before a computer can finally “understand” and execute a piece of code, it goes through a series of complicated transformations:

static analysis workflow

As you can see in the diagram (go ahead, zoom it!), the static analyzers feed on the output of these stages. To be able to better understand the static analysis techniques, let’s look at each of these steps in some more detail:


The first thing that a compiler does when trying to understand a piece of code is to break it down into smaller chunks, also known as tokens. Tokens are akin to what words are in a language.

A token might consist of either a single character, like (, or literals (like integers, strings, e.g., 7Bob, etc.), or reserved keywords of that language (e.g, def in Python). Characters which do not contribute towards the semantics of a program, like trailing whitespace, comments, etc. are often discarded by the scanner.

Python provides the tokenize module in its standard library to let you play around with tokens:



import io


import tokenize



code = b"color = input('Enter your favourite color: ')"



for token in tokenize.tokenize(io.BytesIO(code).readline):





TokenInfo(type=62 (ENCODING),  string='utf-8')


TokenInfo(type=1  (NAME),      string='color')


TokenInfo(type=54 (OP),        string='=')


TokenInfo(type=1  (NAME),      string='input')


TokenInfo(type=54 (OP),        string='(')


TokenInfo(type=3  (STRING),    string="'Enter your favourite color: '")


TokenInfo(type=54 (OP),        string=')')


TokenInfo(type=4  (NEWLINE),   string='')


TokenInfo(type=0  (ENDMARKER), string='')

(Note that for the sake of readability, I’ve omitted a few columns from the result above — metadata like starting index, ending index, a copy of the line on which a token occurs, etc.)
