Just a bit of advice really..

does anyone know php-gtk2?

if so, are you aware of a compiler yet?

I was looking for the same thing a while ago and all I found was Roadsend PHP (http://www.roadsend.com/home/index.php?pageID=compiler). I read that they were adding support for GTK2 but no idea if it got added.

Ended up just using mono C# and GTK# instead.

Hi Analog, thanks for reply…

I’m aware of roadsends compiler but no support for 2 just yet, i believe its been ‘comin soon’ for a couple of years now :frowning:

Looks like they are still making snapshots so you might just get lucky.

Is there a specific reason you need to compile the output? There may be another way around that instead.

i have created a little widget that brings the latest news/updates/store items to your desktop.
I created it for a club i belong to but people won’t use it if they have to download an install php, gtk etc…

i have been waiting for a compiler for what seems an eternity :frowning:

Could you not just package PHP-GTK and your PHP app. in an installer for them? Then it would be no different to any other application to them.

okay, this is gonna sound really dumb…

How?? i’ve never made an installer before :-[ (aside from winrar self-extractor)

Just make the installer package up all the PHP-GTK files and your app. Then have it create shortcuts on the Desktop/Start menu for people to start you app.

There are a few free installers out there. The easiest I know of would be Inno Setup (http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php) or you could use NSIS which is more powerful (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Main_Page).

I found a How To for NSIS here: http://www.brighthub.com/hubfolio/matthew-casperson/articles/54825.aspx

i’ll check them out right now :slight_smile:

i was under the impression/illusion? that i had to use a php-gtk2 compiler and have been waiting for ages for one to come out… didn’t realize there may be another way…

thanks for the heads-up. :wink:

Hi mate,

I tried them out, one compiles the other doesn’t, however i can’t get the program to run after install :frowning: i presume this is because the extension is not associated or i’m doin somethin not quite right :frowning:


You would need to make a shortcut to start the PHP application. That way you can make it do the equivalent of:

php.exe myapp.php

from the command line. Then you don’t need any file associations.

Creating installers is quite hard if you’ve never done it before, but you should be able to get it to do you want.

If you want I can try help make an installer script you can use to create the installer. Just PM if you want me to help.
