  • Predis

    A flexible and feature-complete Redis client for PHP.

    Personally, I prefer Redis for caching. I find it simple and intuitive to work with, using Predis as the connecting client.

  • Twig

    Twig, the flexible, fast, and secure template language for PHP

    Not crazy, but not efficient either. Use a proper template engine (like Twig) and do page score tests with regular intervals. Find out what is slow, what isn't slow and target things that make your site slow down.

  • Cloudways

    Managed Cloud Hosting Platform. Deploy PHP applications on Cloudways web hosting platform to get high uptime and optimized performance. Use the BFCM promo "BFCM2021" to get 40% FLAT discount for FOUR months straight.

  • xDebug

    Xdebug — Step Debugger and Debugging Aid for PHP

    Using Xdebug's profiling features. This takes some time to learn and setting up to your environment.

  • lighthouse

    Automated auditing, performance metrics, and best practices for the web.

    There's a lot of different tools out there, but personally I prefer Lighthouse and PageSpeed Insights.

  • dokuwiki-plugin-mdpage

    A DokuWiki Plugin for Markdown Page

    I'm using markdown page plugin (https://github.com/mizunashi-mana/dokuwiki-plugin-mdpage/), and everything is working apart from CamelCase links (which the phone Wiki uses), so I'm trying to extend the plugin to use it.
