Dynamically add CSRF protection <input>s to each form on the page immediately before it's submitted. This code uses MooTools, though it would be trivial to remove that dependency or swap with jQuery.
View csrf.js
var CSRF = (function() {
window.addEvent('domready', function() {
* Setup triggers on the .submit() function and the `submit` event so we
* can add csrf inputs immediately before the form is submitted.
$$('form').each(function(form) {
// Ensure all forms submitted via a traditional 'submit' button have
// an up-to-date CSRF input
form.addEvent('submit', function() {

Unlimited size uploads in PHP: a minimal demonstration.

Unlimited upload size in PHP

a minimal implementation

A demonstration of accepting unlimited-size uploads in PHP. The included server.php pipes the POST body directly to /dev/null and returns a JSON encoded hash of some useful stats. Using this method (streaming from stdin) we are able to accept uploads of any size with little memory overhead.

// Allows easy composition of a chain of connect.js-style middlewares in node.js
// given:
// function A(req,res,next){}
// function B(req,res,next){}
// composeMiddleware(A,B) will return a function(req,res,next) that passes the request
// through both handlers, just like Connect. If a next() is called with an error
// the call chain is stopped and the error is passed to the topmost next()
// If next() is called with the second parameter set to 'break' "next(null, 'break')"
// The chain is halted and route control is passed back to the original next()
