wxPHP stands for "wxWidgets for PHP" and it is a binding/wrapper for the cross-platform library wxWidgets, which gives you the ability to develop desktop applications using the PHP programming language. This applications can be executed on Windows, Linux and MacOSX using the same code base with a native look and feel.
With the ease and flexibility that we have grow with while developing for the web with PHP
, and the great wxWidgets
framework, we are striking for simpler, easier, faster and fun experience when programming for the desktop.
One of the main ideas is that you can use your php web applications code base and logic to create native desktop applications that communicate to them transparently. This way you can give your users a seamless and native experience from the desktop while staying in sync with your web apps.
For easier development of graphical user interfaces, PHP code generation support was added to wxFormBuilder in order to facilitate the design of PHP gui windows with less coding effort. To get the wxFormBuilder latest builds that include support for PHP visit the download section.
We invite you to download and try this project by your self. We hope everyone can enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed developing it.
