SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) bindings for the PHP language.
- C compiler
- Automake tools
- PHP devel
- libSDL2 devel libraries and headers
- UN*X OS (eg Linux, Macos)
pecl install sdl-devel
to your php.ini file.
The SDL extension mimics in almost every single aspect to the official C library, so until we write our own documentation, refer to the C counterpart.
Standard SDL2 API is available in procedural style:
$window = SDL_CreateWindow( "Foo window", 500, 50, 350, 300, SDL_WINDOW_SHOWN+SDL_WINDOW_RESIZABLE); SDL_SetWindowTitle($window, "Some new title"); SDL_DestroyWindow($window);
And is also available in object oriented style:
$window = new SDL_Window( "Foo window", 100, 50, 350, 300, SDL_Window::SHOWN|SDL_Window::RESIZABLE); $window->SetTitle("Some new title"); unset($window); // will destroy the window
To compile your new extension, you will have to execute the following steps:
$ phpize $ ./configure [--enable--sdl] $ make $ make test $ [sudo] make install
