WinBinder – Build Windows Applications With PHP

WinBinder ScreenshotWinBinder is an open source extension to PHP, the script programming language. It allows PHP programmers to easily build native Windows applications, producing quick and rewarding results with minimum effort. Even short scripts with a few dozen lines can generate a useful program, thanks to the power and flexibility of PHP.

See what it can do:

  • A small set of WinBinder functions encapsulates many complex aspects of the Windows API and makes programming for Windows an easy task.
  • No compiling and linking steps necessary: just code and run.
  • Interfaces directly to the Window API. This means fast execution, no extra libraries and no installation required.
  • Access to the vast range of existing PHP functions and extensions, including databases, graphics, web functions, XML, PDF, and much more.
  • Large installed base of PHP programmers.
  • Provides 100% native Windows classes and controls.
  • Supports both procedural and object-oriented programming models.
  • High performance, compares favorably to most scripting languages.
  • Produces standalone applications that can be easily installed and removed with no reboot.
  • Small footprint. A simple Windows application, complete with the PHP runtime and SQLite extension, is smaller than 700 kB (zipped).
  • A database-independent framework allows easy coding (no SQL knowledge is necessary) and smooth integration with the WinBinder code.
  • No database server required if using SQLite.
  • Does not need to use to the Windows registry, but may use it if necessary.

PHP is a very popular scripting language that is used mostly for web development but is gaining popularity as a general-purpose scripting language.

WinBinder itself is comprised of a DLL (which is the actual PHP extension), a small set of PHP scripts and some auxiliary files. Of course a minimal PHP installation is required as well.
