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.


PHP-GTK 2.1 and Mongo DB Server made portable for windows.


This is my first post to this blog, I thought to make PHP-GTK2 and MongoDB server protable.

This folder can be unzipped anywhere and everything will run as it is. Readme file included. What is this: This is the PHP-GTK 2.1 enviroment including the MongoDB database server. Remeber all these are portable, both the MongoDB server and PHP-GTK enviroment. A hello mongo script is included, a Cairo project is included too. Other demos are included too. All parts are put clean and tidy in separate folders. Windows .bat files are included to make things easy. The .bat files are such that run probably anywhere. Unzip and starting writting PHP-GTK code immediately. Whenever you want to give your job away give it as it is with the folder and it will be ready to run in Windows at once (tested on Windows/XP SP3).

The folder is available for download from here:
