Zendcon 2008 wrap up

I recently had the privilege of attending Zendcon 2008 in Santa Clara, CA I ended up doing four talks (two regular, one panel, and one Unconference talk) in addition to working a few hours a day. It was a lot of fun, as conferences always are, and it was great to meet my friends that I …

PHP-GTK 2.0.0 Released (finally)

For those of you who didn't know - PHP-GTK 2 finally hit a final 2.0.0 release (on leapday of all things). PHP-GTK is a wrapper around GTK, a cross platform library for creating desktop applications. With it you can write desktop apps with PHP. That means no server, just a PHP CLI, the GTK libraries, and …

PHP-GTK2 Beta on Windows

In case you haven't noticed from the glut of other blogs announcing it - PHP-GTK2 beta has been released. A lot has been accomplished from the alpha in terms of fixed bugs, features, and other fun stuff. I've been self-volunteered to do the windows builds. Should be unzip and run on any windows above 95/98, but …

Race for new functions

Gtk is kicking my rear... I can compile iconv, gettext, zlib, libjpegm freetype and even annoying fontconfig (with a few patches) with both msvc and mingw and drop them anywhere and have them run properly, and I can compile glib and gtk with mingw perfectly, and php5 with php-gtk2 with msvc perfectly. But I can't seem …

I'm not dead - Compiling Gtk on Windows

I've had an...interesting... week. First the kids were home the entire first week of this month (stupid winter break) which limited my computer time. Then I ended up with mastitis and spent two days in bed with a fever. Of course after the weekend when I could get to the doctor and get drugs I recovered …

Windows Builds for Php-Gtk2

I now have working almost automated builds running for PHP-Gtk2 with CVS versions of PHP-Gtk2 and PHP5.2. Almost because
1. I haven't written code to automatically upload the zip files and delete files if there are more than 5 snaps sitting there and
2. I still have to start them manually by calling the .bat file.

Fun with compiling - Gtk+, PHP-Gtk2, and MSVC

So I've been using microsoft visual studio (actually it's Visual C++ Express, but uses the same stuff behind the scenes) to work on getting things compiled on windows. PHP-Gtk2 allows for some nifty extensions, well at least on linux. So I've been working to get versions of libglade, scintilla, gtksourceview and mozembed working on windows. It's …

Introducing (Callicore) Writer

It's been a month since I've written, more actually. And I have been busy. I like to be organized. I think it has something to do with the fact that my brain is, well, mush most of the time. I have four kids, two cats, and a husband to keep track of, plus all the household …

Php-Gtk2 is in Zeta....ZETA? WTF?

All hail the mighty Andrei and hardworking Steph - and many others who have been banging away at php-gtk2. They've finally reached the glorious moment of a zeta release.


I started playing with php-gtk2 a bit today, I've been waiting for quite awhile for it to become "ready to use". (I did a bug report way back when 5.0 was in beta and got a "wait for php-gtk2 to come out" response...that was a long time ago) Right now I'm a little annoyed that new …
