Optimizations are one of the great advantages of compilers and just-in-time compilers, and one of the key features of Peachpie. In this post we’ll show you that with Peachpie we achieve far more than “just” compatibility with a significant amount of existing PHP code and great possibilities of interoperating between PHP and .NET.
Things have been a little quiet around the Peachpie project for a few weeks, but there is a good reason for that; we were invited to attend one of the biggest IT conventions in the world: Microsoft Build. Here are our thoughts about it.
After some work around the usage of Peachpie, we got back to implementing core functionalities in the compiler itself.
We are edging closer towards completing the project in its initial form and being able to run full real-world applications.
You probably already know that you can work with Peachpie in Visual Studio Code with our official extension. But did you know that you can also use the full Visual Studio 2017 for your Peachpie projects? In this article, we will show how and what kinds of powerful features this will give you access to.
