I'm looking for a way to protect my PHP source during deployment:
I found these (i think) valid solutions:
HipHop for PHP, developed by Facebook and released under open-source license.
"Overall HipHop allows us to keep the best aspects of PHP while taking advantage of the performance benefits of C++." - Haiping Zhao 2010 (Hip Hop developer)
And this one:
Phalanger – the PHP compiler for .NET http://www.php-compiler.net/
"Phalanger is complete full-featured implementation of PHP, rewritten in safe C# language. It consists of compiler and runtime. The compilation itself brings developers and web hosting providers a lot of new possibilities. Phalanger improves execution speed, safety and makes integration with existing PHP and .NET code very simple."
I want to protect my source code in Windows environment. What do you think about these solutions ? Do you know these two instruments, have them tested with Phalcon?
Thank You Mariano Pirelli
