The Hylian Shield, traditionally bore by the Knights of Hyrule, bearing the symbol of the Triforce, pointed at by the Crimson Loftwing.
With a passion for Zelda games, the name HylianShield seemed most fitting for an open source organization, focusing on shielding code from malicious user input.
The HylianShield organization was created as a home for the HylianShield validator. This validator was originally born from a previous attempt to setting up a static site generator. That generator was extremely reliant on good structured JSON. Without knowledge of JSON Schema validation, it achieved something fairly similar within a templating engine.
With all this stray logic inside a templating engine, it deserved a home of its own. Thus, the HylianShield validator was created.
Today, the organization holds more than just the validation suite. A few of them are:
- A PHP implementation of Crockford's Base 32 encoding.
- An API key / serial generator.
- An Alphabet library, to support encoders and cryptography.
- A Symfony Bundle to locate files in vendor packages.
Feel free to take a look around. All packages are open source and new input is welcome.
