Cross-paltform Apps and PHP on the desktop

Lately I’ve been fiddeling ¬†with cross-platform apps.

Cross-palform can be:

  • Android/iPhone on the mobile world
  • Windows/Linux/Mac on the desktop/laptop

I’ve been searching on both ends ūüôā but this post is about desktop.

Languages (make a google search on each) aside from the traditional Java, C++, C, Objective C:

D lang, Go lang, Free Pascal(fpc)/Lazarus – Native executables on each platform. Only lazarus gives you fast, simple cross-plaform GUI (Linux,Mac,Windows)

Development Environments for HTML based development:

PHPDesktop, Node-Webkit, nighttrain: These are funny products, you get an *.exe and a sub-folder “www” you then put some code made with Javascript, html, css, (and sometimes PHP,Python,Lua) on that folder. Then, when you launch that *.exe a window opens with a chrome browser frame showing your app. It’s pretty cool!

If you want to do something similar, you could be visit the embedded server mongoose (or a more free for comercial use fork civetweb) they used or the CEF3 (Chrome Embedded Framework).

Tip for node-webkit: Save persistent data in app

Web РCode editors (that use a similar technique as node-webkit)

IceCoder and Brackets


Also: Adding LESS Css pre-processor to Brackets

Parse – One backend to rule them all


Parse Core – Everything your app needs to save data, be social, and more. Create the perfect app with Parse Core.

Parse Push –¬†Creating, scheduling, and segmenting push notifications just got a whole lot easier.

Parse Analytics –¬†Track any data point in your app in real-time.

PHP The Right Way


There’s a lot of outdated information on the Web that leads new PHP users astray, propagating bad practices and insecure code. PHP: The Right Way is an easy-to-read, quick reference for PHP popular coding standards, links to authoritative tutorials around the Web and what the contributors consider to be best practices at the present time.

There is no canonical way to use PHP. This website aims to introduce new PHP developers to some topics which they may not discover until it is too late, and aims to give seasoned pros some fresh ideas on those topics they’ve been doing for years without ever reconsidering. This website will also not tell you which tools to use, but instead offer suggestions for multiple options, when possible explaining the differences in approach and use-case.

This is a living document and will continue to be updated with more helpful information and examples as they become available.
