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.
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.
Moving on down the roadmap, we are implementing more and more PHP functionalities into Peachpie compiler. This week, we would like to introduce a particularly popular one – Static Local Variables.
We previously talked about the include/require functionality, which we recently managed to implement in Peachpie. Now we decided to put the compiler to the test and benchmark the include function against standard PHP and Phalanger.
