I recently needed the ability to perform a RIGHT JOIN in a Symfony project. While Doctrine's DBAL library seems to support this, the ORM's QueryBuilder does not. Unfortunately, the suggested workaround of inverting the query wouldn't work in my situation. I also didn't feel like rewriting the query into DQL, so I ultimately hacked in my own support by duplicating the LEFT JOIN functionality. I figured I'd share my patch in case it helps others facing a similar issue.

 

PHPUnicorn

For Pi Day 2017 I created a really fun project - the PHPUnicorn!

A simple PHPUnit listener collects test results and sends them to a Raspberry Pi Zero Wireless device in real-time.  As the device receives the stats it lights up LEDs green, red, or orange to visualize the progress and results of your unit tests.
