Perverting windows with PHP
September 10, 2007 @ 10:26:00

In a new post, Elizabeth Smith talks about "perverting Windows" to work with desktop PHP applications via an interesting library - Winbinder.

Writing desktop applications with PHP is considered to be idiotic by many people, but personally I think it's a lot of fun and can be useful. [...] There are more solutions for desktop apps with PHP than people probably realize. [...] So why isn't there a Win32 GUI wrapper for PHP? Well, there is...kind of.

She mentions a few issues she has with the Winbinder software - including lacking support for PHP5 and non-threadsafe code. She's falling back more and more on the "I can write an extension for that" mentality, though and has plans for the future:

Eventually I hope to have a WinUi, WinGdi, and WinSys (processes, threading, registry, et al) to put in pecl. There are some win32 only extensions in PECL, but win32std is the only one I've actually had use for, or even got working properly, and there's no agreement among them in naming convention, API design, or even functions vs. classes. So here I am, playing.

PHPit.net:
An Introduction to the Winbinder Library (Part 1)
May 02, 2006 @ 07:59:14

PHPit.net has posted their latest tutorial today providing an introduction to the powerful Winbinder library for PHP for those unfamiliar with it.

In this new article series you will be introduced to the Winbinder Library, and shown exactly what it can do. In this first part you will learn what the Winbinder library is, and you will be given two examples.

True to the theme of the article, they introduce the Winbinder library - what it is, how it works, and links to grab the latest copy. Their first simple example is a "Hello World" window created with about 7 lines of code. They explain the parts of this code before moving on, up to an example that uses the event handler functionality to catch a button being clicked.

32 Cards - PHP Based World CUP 2006 Game
April 27, 2006 @ 06:40:30

Aaron Wormus notes in this new blog entry about a client-side card game he's been introduced to that comines great graphics, a smart AI and a powerful combination - PHP5 and the Winbinder library.

I remember the WTF moment I had a couple years ago when Frozen Bubble was released. The game was nice but the awesome bit was the it was based on PERL, which was my programming language of choice at the time.

I had that moment again this morning when an email arrived in my mail box from Rubem Pechansky (The WinBinder Guy) where he announced his Worldcup 2006 card game which is based entirely on PHP5 and Winbinder.

The game, 32cards is a digital card trading game with tons of data about each country for each card. On each turn, the topmost card is uncovered and five stats are compared. The player with the highest stats wins and points are awarded. You can gabs this great example of how flexible PHP really is (and try out a pretty cool game) by heading over to their site and grabbing the download.

Converting PHP Scripts to Windows Apps
April 25, 2006 @ 07:17:56

Justin Silverton has a very simple post on his blog today about the conversion of a PHP application over to a Windows-native application.

I came across this application the other day that will allow you to convert php scripts to native windows applications. The application is called WinBinder and it is available Here

He lists out some of their key benefits ot making the switch and shows a very simple example of creating a "Hello World" window with the scripts.

His talk this year dealt with using the Winbinder software to create "Win32 GUI Applications". He talks about the history of Winbinder, why you should use it, and code examples for starting out, controlling windows, and using the Winbinder framework...
