PHP 7 support

Hi.

I know we ask that a lot... however, I have to ask again.

Is there a timeline? rough estimation? progress indicator? anything?

How far is 2.1 from being production-ready with PHP 7?

Thanks.

Hello friend,

Support for php7 is on the works, only the parsers (PHQL, Volt, Annotations) need to be migrated to PHP7 extensions as these sections are purely C code. We hope to have a functional version soon.

This was the last update info we got on forum I think ..

You can check this link for updates also.. https://forum.phalconphp.com/discussion/9715/php-7-can-you-please-update-us-on-the-progress

I guess mr. Andres is very busy, would be nice if we could help somehow to get the support for the php 7

Support for PHP7 is available, but still in beta: https://github.com/phalcon/cphalcon/issues/10378

You'll need to compile the 2.1.x branch using the latest version of Zephir (0.9.2a-dev). Make sure you use this command: zephir install --backend=ZendEngine3

for me initialize method isnt call for Phalcon\Mvc\Router\Group

i reported an issue, but no responce so far.

Zephir fails to compile extensions that are linked with phalcon also.

Having problems compiling against PHP7 on ubuntu xenial LTS beta. I can compile other extensions for the PHP7, and have compiled Phalcon 2 against PHP5 previously.

phalcon just doesnt work with php 7 yet. If Andy ever fix it they will propably regenerate the extensions and you iwll be able just to put it in your php.ini, but for now i dont think its worth the time to fix the compilation.

I've got a vagrant that begs to differ. It is probably pre-alpha, but you can now compile the 2.1.x branch on trusty

Special thanks to

See: This Gist

https://github.com/phalcon/zephir/issues/1216

until those are fixed i wouldnt waste my time trying to complie it.

p.s. i manage to compile it etc... but it just dies in seg faults even in something as simple as

use Phalcon\Mvc\View;

$di = new \Phalcon\Di\FactoryDefault();

$di->set('view',function(){
    $view=new \Phalcon\Mvc\View\Simple;
    $view->registerEngines([
        '.volt'=>'Phalcon\Mvc\View\Engine\Volt'
    ]);
    return $view;
});

I think without an easily reproducible environment to test PHP7, how will we know of these problems?

The way I see it, it's just another thing off the minds of the people setting up dev & testing environments

UPDATE

Besides a few fixes to the generated code, I just ran

phalcon project test modules public true

It seemed to produce code that after a little tweaking to get around needed updates and a syntax error, worked without issue.
