End of Life and GDPR

If you're reading the 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.


PHPKetchup Project


Many web-developers complain about switching to desktop applications simply because they are built using Java or C# language. PHP, they say, is one of the most professional and widely supported web programming languages and is cross-platform, so why give that up for Java or C#? For those who learned application development on PHP or those who have made PHP their primary development tool, the idea of ditching PHP for something else may seem daunting or time-consuming. For companies, switching to another language can require reallocating resources, creation of projects from scratch, compilation of source-code after each editing, training of employees, or hiring of new employees. Whatever the case, leaving PHP for another language can be costly and time-consuming.

Objective of this project is to create a framework that supports cross-platform application development with the power of PHP and GTK. We will use an already existing PHP framework to reduce development time and provide a good set of features.

Please forward this survey to your friends, software geeks and gurus.

It would probably be good if

It would probably be good if you could give more details about the design you intend for the framework, and what already existing framework are you planning to build this upon? I think these are really some of the greatest factors in determining whether such a framework would be well received or not... but neither in what you write here nor on the website can I find more information about that.

Design, Intent and Existing Framework Details

Actually the project was in very initial phases those days. We were analyzing various aspects and waiting for survey results to see if it is worth working on. To date we have received 60+ survey responses, and the overall result was positive.

Design: Design is yet in initial phases and not final, but you can get some idea of it from our website now.
Intend: To do research on transformation of PHP framework to PHP-GTK framework and show an implementation of it.
Existing Framework: We are going for "CodeIgniter"
