Web framework delivered as a C-extension for PHP

README.md

Phalcon Framework

Phalcon is a web framework implemented as a C extension offering high performance and lower resource consumption.

Get Started

Phalcon is written in C with platform independence in mind. As a result, Phalcon is available on Microsoft Windows, GNU/Linux, and Mac OS X. You can either download a binary package for the system of your choice or build it from sources.

Windows

To install Phalcon on Windows:

  1. Download Phalcon for Windows
  2. Extract the DLL file and copy it to your PHP extensions directory
  3. Edit your php.ini file and add this line: extension=php_phalcon.dll
  4. Finally, restart your webserver

Hint: To ensure that your Phalcon installation was successful, debug with <?php phpinfo(); ?> and search for a section mentioning the Phalcon extension.

Linux/Unix/Mac

On a Unix-based platform you can easily compile and install the extension from sources.

Requirements

Prerequisite packages are:

  • PHP 5.3.x/5.4.x/5.5.x development resources
  • GCC compiler (Linux/Solaris) or Xcode (Mac)

Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install php5-dev libpcre3-dev gcc make

Suse:

sudo zypper install php5-devel gcc make

CentOS/Fedora/RHEL

sudo yum install php-devel pcre-devel gcc make

Compilation

Follow these instructions to generate a binary extension for your platform:

git clone git://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon.git
cd cphalcon/build
sudo ./install

Add the extension to your php.ini:

extension=phalcon.so

Finally, restart the webserver.
