HubFolio:
Deploying a PHP-GTK application with NSIS
Nov 04, 2009 @ 12:06:33

On the HubFolio site today Matthew Casperson has posted a new tutorial about deploying PHP-GTK applications with the help of the NSIS software (Nullsoft Scriptable Install System).

PHP-GTK is a project that binds the GTK desktop library. Unlike other solutions like Appceletartor Titanium, which create web applications that are distributed like a desktop application, PHP-GTK allows PHP developers to create native desktop applications utilizing the GTK platform. One of the issues with PHP-GTK is distributing the final application. This tutorial steps you through the process of creating a setup package for a simple PHP-GTK application with NSIS and HM NIS Edit.

He shows you how to create a simple PHP-GTK application, package it up with the HM NIS Edit tool and use the wizard to create the new package. Change a few configuration settings and compile the script and you should end up with a nice bundled installer.
