PHP-GTK.eu End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the PHP-GTK.eu community site these days, you certainly noticed that not a single piece of significant content was created since 2015, and not much since 2013.

Whatever this may mean for PHP-GTK itself is another issue, but for the site itself, it means it ceased to be relevant about 5 years ago, and it's time to move on for the site members. Since the site contains non-anonymous user, it will fall under the new EU GDPR regulations entering into force on 2018-05-25, and there is no point for me to spend time on evolving the site towards compliance when no one is actually using it.

So here is the EOL announcement: the site will be shutting down on 2018-05-24 and its data will taken offline.

A static version of the articles may be published again at some point here or elsewhere, but I wouldn't hold my breath on it. So if you have even some interest in the site content, be sure to copy/paste the pages of interest before it goes dark on 2018-05-24. Or contact me if you want a copy of the files and content, or check my blog for newer content.

Thanks all for participating, it's been a pleasure while it lasted.

Compile That PHP-GTK2, and More

One thing that causes a lot of problems still right now is the lack of pre-compiled packages for Linux distributions. Between that and users who would just want to compile their own anyway I get a lot of questions about how to setup a system for, and compile, PHP-GTK2. Personally, I get a bit weary of repeating the same instructions over and over, so I have turned out a work-in-progress guide to compiling PHP-GTK2 on Unix systems with notes aimed to help people on certain distributions.

How To Compile - With Special Notes For:

  • Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy)
  • FreeBSD
  • Solaris 10

Also up on my site I have begun formatting some of my PHP-GTK2 Object Oriented tutorials for the web. I hope that these documents can help you get started and harness the full power of PHP-GTK.
