Welcome to Osotite.com

Here you will find a colletion of useful tools I've developed over the years. I'm offering them to you in hopes that you will create something cool with them. I'm sure you will =)

So what are you offering?

The main library offered here on this site is called BaseJumper. It is a completely object oriented library / framework for PHP5. It has been under development by me for almost 2 years and it is finally ready for public consumption. It has tons of features, and is the culmination of over 6 years of develpment experience in PHP. I hope it works as well for you as it works for me.

How do I use it?

Well, first off it's a PHP5 library, so you need PHP5. Secondly it relies on a solid knowledge of OOP, so make sure you can handle that. Thirdly, there are tutorials and documentation to help you learn the library. Finally, since I wrote most of it, drop me a line and I can probably help you out.

Where can I get it?

Use the sidebar on the right. There is public subversion access and you can also download .tar / .zip files.

Why another framework?

Thats a good question. Honestly there really is no 'need', but there is space. =) My guess is it's because I like to pave my own way. Plus, with this library I could do it the way I wanted to, and not have to follow someone else's design pattern or switch languages. It works for me, really well infact, so I thought I should share it with you and maybe you will like it.

Who are you?

My name is Zach Smith and I love the internets. All those tubes and dumptrucks running around. Its great. I grew up in Iowa, in what I like to call Silicorn Valley. It's nice out here, very peaceful, generally down to earth. Since then I've been cruising around the country, programming alot, and trying to make the world a better place.
