Simpliest way to obfuscate e-mail address using jQuery

Here is a simpliest jQuery code to protect e-mail addresses on your website from spam bots. Just put this in a script tag into the head section:

$(window).load(function() {			
	// anti spam
	var r='random-string';
	$('.'+r).each(function() {
	var $this = $(this),
		value = new String($this.text());
		value = value.replace('['+r+']', '@');
		$this.replaceWith($('').text(value).attr('href', 'mailto:'+value));

Now replace random-string with any really aleatory set of characters eg. dhhIDu338

And here is the HTML part. Publish every e-mail address on your page using this code:

Contact: <span class="random-string">johndoe[random-string]</span>

Force Yii to republish assets every page refresh

During webapp development you’ll need often assets republication. When you publish assets using directory path, framework won’t republish them automaticaly. So what can you do? It’s plain simple. Use YII_DEBUG constant as fourth argument in publish function.

$assetPath = Yii::app()-&gt;assetManager-&gt;publish(Yii::getPathOfAlias('application.modules.components.assets'), false, 1, YII_DEBUG);

From this moment Yii will republish assets on every page refresh only in debug mode (it won’t consume your resources in production mode).
