Alexey Zakhlestin has a new post today with some of his own thoughts on the suggestion for a built-in web server (RFC) that's been floating around lately - a tool that would act as a simple server right out of the box without much in the way of configuration.
There are a lot of talks today about "Built-in web server" [for PHP] RFC by Moriyoshi Koizumi. There is a nice discussion on Hacker News (and 2 threads on reddit: here and here). So, here's couple of cents from me.
Alexey agrees with the suggestion and notes it'd be a welcome addition to the PHP toolset. He also reminds developers that it wouldn't (and shouldn't) be used in production.
