SitePoint PHP Blog:
3 Ways to Develop Cross Platform Desktop Apps with PHP
December 04, 2014 @ 10:29:44

In a new post to the SitePoint PHP blog today editor Bruno Skvorc shares a summary of three ways to make desktop applications with PHP that will run across multiple platforms.

PHP as a cross-platform desktop app development language? Blasphemy! Nonetheless, it's possible. A few years ago, everything those interested in bringing PHP to the desktop had had was the now long abandoned GTK PHP. Since then, new players have appeared, though let's first answer the "why".

He answers the "why" question with a list of "several far fetched scenarios" but points out that there's much better tools for the job. He then gets into the three different tools that can be used to make the desktop applications:

He briefly introduces each, explores a bit of what they can do and looks at some of the major hinderances that come with them. He ends with a few links to other, less well-developed options like PHPDesktop, Webinder and PHP GTK.

DevShed:
Building Your Own Desktop Notepad Application Using PHP-GTK
September 23, 2008 @ 13:07:36

In this new tutorial from DevShed, they show how to take that PHP-GTK introductory knowledge a step further and create a simple desktop "notepad" application (corss-platform, of course).

If you think building a desktop application such as Notepad is difficult, think again. If you use PHP-GTK, it's almost ridiculously easy. This article will show you how. By the time you're done, you'll have a full cross-platform application in about 100 lines.

You need to already have the latest PHP-GTK version installed and have a basic knowledge of how to make an application before you start. All code is included as well as explanations as to where all of the parts go (including a simple find, time/date output, select all and how to tell if the user has modified the contents of the file).

PHPBuilder.com:
Cross-Platform Database PHP Development
June 25, 2007 @ 11:44:00

On PHPBuilder.com today, there's a new tutorial focusing on the development of PHP applications that can be run on different database environments without many changes to the actual application.

There are several options available to interact with multiple database engines with PHP, such as Pear DB and MDB2. However, there may instances where you will be required to develop your own custom database interface that connects to many different database engines using a single unified syntax. This article will address the development of a class that will do exactly that. In addition, we will include the ability to replicate data among several databases in real time.

They create their own abstraction layer that has the ability to make the connection, replicate data between connections, handle some errors and work with database configuration data. The tutorial shows you how to use the script for three different database types - MySQL, Oracle, and MS SQL.
