creating embedded php code from a database field

i actually dont know why i didnt think of doing this earlier, i already have the php code field in these code articles.

I thought why not embed this code into an actual file and then run it as a test or in an iframe.

Now i can do this! so every code post that contains php will add a working (or non working) demo file, so you can see if the code actually works, and all of this is automated. 

i have had to comment out the code for this demo as it references variables that are not available in the standalone demo. 

Update: so i had this working on the view page, so every time the page is viewed this is re-creating and writing the file, so i guess this is not a great idea as it only really needs to be updated when the page is saved, So i will move the file writing code from the view page to the update page. 


// add sources to template
	// can add an auto index to jump to sections.

	$sources = "";
	$html_safe = "";
	$html_raw = "";
  if($class->html > "") {
    $html_safe = htmlentities($class->html);
		$html_raw = $class->html;
    $sources .= "<h2 id='html'>HTML</h2><pre><code class='html'>$html_safe</code></pre>";
	$css_safe = "";
	$css_raw = "";
  if($class->css > "") {
    $css_safe = htmlentities($class->css);
		$css_raw = $class->css;
    $sources .= "<h2 id='css'>CSS</h2><pre><code class='css'>$css_safe</code></pre>";
	$scripts_safe = "";
	$scripts_raw = "";
  if($class->scripts > "") {
    $scripts_safe = htmlentities($class->scripts);
    $scripts_raw = $class->scripts;
    $sources .= "<h2 id='scripts'>Scripts</h2><pre><code class='html'>$scripts_safe</code></pre>";

	// if there is php then write it to a test php file, like cssbundle.
	// add a test link maybe an iframe embed for it.

This is my test area for webdev. I keep a collection of code snippits here, mostly for my reference. Also if i find a good site, i usually add it here.

Join me on Substack if you want me to send you a collection of the things i have done or found or read for the week. Or follow me on twitter if you prefer, i dont post much but i probably should!

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
