Gnope is a program management environment, allowing you to download and deploy applications with a graphical user interface written in PHP-GTK2 on many platforms.
Gnope in the words of its authors
The success of PHP has gathered a strong and active community around
a language, which was initially created to develop server-side web applications,
but the easy syntax and the powerful set of functions (or methods) led us
to ponder the possibility to create offline applications with nice GUIs
(graphical user interfaces) and an easy way to install these applications on
The availability of the Gtk (aka GIMP ToolKit) for PHP finally made a solid
foundation of graphical methods accessible for the average PHP coder.
In October 2005 Christian Weiske and Ralf Schwoebel started to create a
platform for the rapid deployment of PHP-GTK2 applications called Gnope, which
means something like
php-gtk networked open
The Gnope set of applications are published under the LGPL open source license and everybody is welcome to help, criticize or imitate us!
