A user friendly, strong password generator PHP function.
View strong-passwords.php
<?PHP
// Generates a strong password of N length containing at least one lower case letter,
// one uppercase letter, one digit, and one special character. The remaining characters
// in the password are chosen at random from those four sets.
//
// The available characters in each set are user friendly - there are no ambiguous
// characters such as i, l, 1, o, 0, etc. This, coupled with the $add_dashes option,
// makes it much easier for users to manually type or speak their passwords.
//
// Note: the $add_dashes option will increase the length of the password by

WordPress coding standards configuration for PhpStorm
View deprecated.md

Now Native

PhpStorm now bundles WordPress coding style natively, starting from version 8.

  1. Go to Project Settings > Code Style > PHP.
  2. Select Set From... (top right of window) > Predefined Style > WordPress.

No longer need to muck with this import! :)

Checkout github pull requests locally

Locate the section for your github remote in the .git/config file. It looks like this:

[remote "origin"]
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
	url = git@github.com:joyent/node.git

Now add the line fetch = +refs/pull/*/head:refs/remotes/origin/pr/* to this section. Obviously, change the github url to match your project's URL. It ends up looking like this:

You can’t perform that action at this time.
