It has been a while since our last article, as we have been working on integrating the ASP.NET Core pipeline into Peachpie compiler. This opens up a whole host of new possibilities, which we would like to demonstrate in this blog post.
Peachpie is a compiler of the PHP language to .NET. The project is still in progress, but there is a plethora of interesting usecases for the compiler. This article is a tutorial for some of the more advanced interoperability options between PHP and C# using Peachpie.
As we continue making progress with the development of Peachpie, we have implemented several constructs that demonstrate the benefits of using a PHP compiler to .NET. This week, we would like to show some official PHP benchmarks and explain why this is significant.
As announced in the last blog post, there has been some major progress in the development of the Peachpie platform over the last couple of weeks. Peachpie is now capable of running compiled PHP applications on IIS and on the Microsoft Azure cloud.
