Redirect All Requests To Index.php Using .htaccess

In one of my pet projects, I redirect all requests to index.php, which then decides what to do with it:

Simple Example

This snippet in your .htaccess will ensure that all requests for files and folders that does not exists will be redirected to index.php:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d

A type is a collection of possible values. An integer can have values 0, 1, 2, 3, etc.; a boolean can have values true and false. We can imagine any type we like: for example, a HighFive type that allows the values "hi" or 5, but nothing else. It's not a string and it's not an integer; it's its own, separate type.

Statically typed languages constrain variables' types: the programming language might know, for example, that x is an Integer. In that case, the programmer isn't allowed to say x = true; that would be an invalid program. The compiler will refuse to compile it, so we can't even run it.

if x < 0 || x > Int(size.width) || y < 0 || y > Int(size.height) {
return nil

What forces layout / reflow

All of the below properties or methods, when requested/called in JavaScript, will trigger the browser to synchronously calculate the style and layout*. This is also called reflow or layout thrashing, and is common performance bottleneck.

  • elem.offsetLeft, elem.offsetTop, elem.offsetWidth, elem.offsetHeight, elem.offsetParent
  • elem.clientLeft, elem.clientTop, elem.clientWidth, elem.clientHeight
  • elem.getClientRects(), elem.getBoundingClientRect()
