Build windows applications using PHP!!!  

Posted by Hanush H Nair in

WinBinder is an open source extension to PHP, the script programming language. It allows PHP programmers to easily build native Windows applications, producing quick and rewarding results with minimum effort. Even short scripts with a few dozen lines can generate a useful program, thanks to the power and flexibility of PHP.







Key benefits

  • Large installed base of PHP programmers.
  • No compiling and linking steps necessary: just code and run.
  • Access to the vast range of existing PHP functions and extensions, including databases, graphics, web functions, XML, PDF, and much more.
  • A small set of WinBinder functions encapsulates many complex aspects of the Windows API and makes programming for Windows an easy task.
  • Provides 100% native Windows classes and controls.
  • Interfaces directly to the Window API. This means fast execution, no extra libraries and no installation required.
  • Supports both procedural and object-oriented programming models.
  • High performance, compares favorably to most scripting languages.
  • Produces standalone applications that can be easily installed and removed with no reboot.
  • Small footprint. A simple Windows application, complete with the PHP runtime and SQLite extension, is smaller than 700 kB (zipped).
  • A database-independent framework allows easy coding (no SQL knowledge is necessary) and smooth integration with the WinBinder code.
  • No database server required if using SQLite.
  • Does not need to use to the Windows registry, but may use it if necessary.
PHP is a very popular scripting language that is used mostly for web development but is gaining popularity as a general-purpose scripting language.
