React, Flux, GraphQL, Hack, HHVM...? All of this and more!
On February 2nd 2010 FaceBook announced that they’re open sourcing a novel method for accelerating PHP applications. While the method in question could be talked about a lot, I’m going to leave that for others:
After the announcement had been I made I went domain shopping and got myself hiphopphp.org . Like for most of my domains I’ve really got no use for it (some collect Stamps, I collect Domains I suppose).
A few days after the announcement I got an idea that I’d set up a blog to announce what works with HipHop and what does not, providing tips on how to make a certain functionality work, etc. This means popular software such as WordPress, Drupal, eZ Publish, Vanilla Forum, Small Machines Forum and the likes that under certain conditions could really benefit from HipHop.
The acceleration method used is complex and there will undoubtedly be a lot of issues with the Software around. And at the moment it is also compatible with PHP 5.2, so all 5.3 goodness is not available. No GOTO.Tweet
