One way to share identifiers publicly without disclosing the actual information that they refer internally in an application is create alternative identifiers that act as keys for instance for searching the related information in a database that is managed by the application.

This package can create short identifiers for sharing publicly using private keys that the package can generate.

The package can also recover the original information that was encoded in the form of the short identifier that was created previously.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.

The package tinyID is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

The basic purpose is: Shorten and obfuscate identifier strings

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This package can shorten and obfuscate identifier strings.

It takes a given key string made of unique Unicode characters that will work as dictionary.

The package can encode another string using the key string as dictionary so the resulting encoded string is made only of characters of the key string, resulting in a shorter string.

It can also take a previously encoded string and reverts to the original string using the same key.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
