HHVM

HHVM page | HHVM documentation | Hacklang page | General group | Dev group | Twitter

HHVM is an open-source virtual machine designed for executing programs written in Hack. HHVM uses a just-in-time (JIT) compilation approach to achieve superior performance while maintaining amazing development flexibility.

HHVM should be used together with a webserver like the built in, easy to deploy Proxygen, or a FastCGI-based webserver on top of nginx or Apache.

Installing

If you're new, try our getting started guide.

You can install a prebuilt package or compile from source.

Running

You can run standalone programs just by passing them to hhvm: hhvm example.hack.

If you want to host a website:

  • Install your favorite webserver. Proxygen is built into HHVM, fast and easy to deploy.
  • Install our package
  • Start your webserver
  • Run sudo /etc/init.d/hhvm start
  • Visit your site at http://.../main.hack

Our getting started guide provides a slightly more detailed introduction as well as links to more information.
