Rah_function turns every PHP function into a Textpattern tag. That’s right, with rah_function pretty much any PHP function can be used as a Textpattern tag. No need for PHP snippets, ending nor closing PHP tags — only thing you need is a Textpattern’s XML tag.

Need all caps? Can do:

<txp:rah_function call="mb_strtoupper">
	Hello World!

One might be unsure what the date is:

<txp:rah_function call="safe_strftime">
	%B %d, %Y %H:%M

Sometimes you might want to pass something to JavaScript. When that day comes, would be nice if that something was valid JavaScript:

<txp:rah_function call="json_encode">
	I want to be a valid JavaScript string.
