Paul Jones' Blog:
PHP Framework Benchmarks on Github
Oct 20, 2010 @ 11:10:44

For those that have been interested in the benchmarking that Paul Jones has done in the past on benchmarking the various frameworks but didn't want to mess with the Google Code repository for it, you can now grab it easier since he's moved it to Github. This also helps to make any collaboration simpler.

As part of "trying new things," I have moved my web frameworks benchmark project over to Git on Github and away from Subversion on Google Code. This project is often imitated and occasionally adopted. For all you framework fans who want to compare their preferred systems to the ones officially included in the project, you can now fork the repo and add your favorite. Who knows, some may make their way back onto the officially-included list.

He's also made a slight modification to the project in the process of the move - the ability to use one of three different benchmarking tools (or all three, really) for your testing - Apache's ab, Siege and HttpLoad. Check out this updated version here on Paul's Github account.

Alexey Zakhlestin's Blog:
Application Server in PHP? well...Yes!
Jun 20, 2007 @ 07:54:00

In a new post today, Alexey Zakhlestin talks about "limited implementation" of the SCGI protocol that he created in PHP.

I finally found some time (and inspiration) to do something in direction of implementing FastCGI the way I see it. Initially, I was going to implement FastCGI-functions in php-extension, but that would require more time than I currently have, so I started with a simplier task: I implemented SCGI protocol (which is way simplier than FastCGI) in pure php-code (which is easier, again, and let’s me change API faster, during development).

The result is this project (hosted on the Google Code site) that allows you to use it with any SCGI-enabled server (apache and lighttpd. He includes a source code example to clarify its use.

New Inspekt Build Available
Jun 07, 2007 @ 09:32:00

As mentioned by the Zend Developer Zone, Ed Finkler has posted the latest version of his Inspekt security tool.

Although downloads have been on the Google Code site for a bit, I recently put up a new build of Inspekt. This could probably be described as a late alpha release, with most proposed features implemented.

Also included in this new edition are full API documentation for the application, some documentation on its basic usage and, of course, the source of this latest release.
