The PHP Classes Site Itself (English)

The PHP Classes site was created to make it easier share knowledge about PHP and related topics.

Initially it provided means for PHP developers to share their PHP components built as classes of objects. The idea was to share knowledge in the form of reusable components that come with examples and documentation that you can learn and use immediately in your projects. About 10000 components were shared by over 4300 authors with over 1.5 million registered users of the site.

Here you can browse the available component categories or you can also use the site search to search for components using specific keywords.

Later the site provided means for any developer to write blog posts, so other developers could also learn about solving broader problems using tutorials. Here you can find the main PHP tutorial articles.

Many published components also come with tutorial articles to teach how specific problems can be solved with those components. Here you may find those PHP component tutorial articles.

Addionally if you were not able to find a component to solve a specific need that you have in your PHP projects, you can also ask for a recommend package and eventually you can get suggestions to use available components, or a developer may create a new component for you. You can find this resource in the recommended PHP packages section.
