Install PHP-GTK 2 on MacOS X

Installation of PHP-GTK 2 on MacOS X 10.4 and 10.5 is actually pretty simple, as it can use the latest PHP-GTK installer, which works just like any other Mac installer.

Just follow the screenshots below this text. The installer includes all the pre-requisites required for PHP to run , but the best feature of the installer is that you don't need X to run GTK+ apps, and the theme is by default Quartz-engine powered, which means you get the whole native Mac look.

Google Summer of Code and PHP-GTK

Anant Narayanan, one of the PHP-GTK maintainers, has just announced on the PHP-GTK dev list that it seems PHP will be participating in the Summer of Code again this year, and this might be a good opportunity to get a student to work on some aspect of PHP-GTK.

Both Elizabeth and him are willing to be mentors.

They have put up a couple of ideas on http://wiki.php.net/gsoc/2008#php-gtk and an announcement will appear shortly on the gtk.php.net site.

If you know someone suitable who will be eligible to participate, please encourage them to send in an application.

PHP-GTK 2 is Here !

After a long development and QA cycle, we are proud to release version 2.0 of PHP-GTK. This release, named leap day special, marks PHP-GTK 2 as stable and comes with support for GTK+ versions 2.6 through 2.12. Although support for more recent versions than 2.8 is not 100% complete, we hope to cover as much of the API as possible in upcoming releases.

This release comes with support for custom GTypes and signals, more API coverage, and the usual slew of bug fixes. Take a look at the Changelog for detailed information on changes since the beta.

If you're looking to learn PHP-GTK, the documentation is a great place to start. There's also an excellent book from Apress by Scott Mattocks on the topic. We hope you will enjoy developing applications with PHP-GTK 2. Please don't hesitate to file bug reports at the bug tracker, or give us feedback on the php-gtk-general mailing list. Have fun!

Gataka: the PHP-GTK IRC bot

The PHP-GTK.eu community site is now host to an IRC bot named Gataka (for "GTK"), helping users on the Freenode IRC channel for PHP-GTK, at irc://irc.freenode.net/php-gtk.

Gataka on IRC

Its main features are:

  • API reference: ask about PHP-GTK elements (case does not matter) and Gataka will return links to their reference on the main PHP-GTK site. Examples: atk? returns the links to the ATK static functions page and the ATK enums page. gtkentry? returns the link to the GtkEntry class reference page.
  • User tracking: "seen foo" returns the last quote from foo
  • Factoids: teach the bot like: Gataka: foo is bar and query it with foo? to receive bar as an answer. Make it forget with Gataka: forget about foo

It can also backup your database in plain SQL - it can even backup a database in another type of SQL-format (backup a MySQL-database in valid SQLite SQL-format and more).
