On the SitePoint PHP blog Bruno Skvorc has posted a new tutorial showing you how to get PHP extensions installed on Nitrous.io, an online environment combining an IDE and PaaS hosting.
Inspired by a comment on my previous article, I realized Nitrous was still a bit too complicated to customize properly. In this tutorial, we’ll glide through installing cURL and Phalcon on a Nitrous.io PHP box.
He continues on from his previous article and shows how to detect cURL support and how to build it from the PHP source into an extension. He helps you get the source for the older PHP version Nitrous.io has installed and the commands you'll need to build the extension. With it installed and enabled in the php.ini, he also installs the Phalcon extension.
