zephir on OS X

I've check out the project and install the requirements via MacPorts. The XX folder is not there so I tried to run generate. I got this error:

parser.c:10:23: error: json/json.h: No such file or directory

So I think I have a path issues, but I have no idea how to fix it.

Any thoughts?

You need to install json-c on your machine: https://github.com/phalcon/zephir#installation

However, Zephir is not ready to be used yet , it's very alpha and it has several missing features and bugs

Here is my progress so far.

The json-c package that comes with MacPorts was no good. I just followed the instructions here https://github.com/json-c/json-c/blob/master/README and that issues was resolved.

I have Zend Server. when I ran the ext/install it used the wrong phpize. I just get rid the one that ships with OS X that is in /usr/bin.

Everything seemed to build OK, but I'm getting a "wrong architecture" error. when trying to use the complied extension.

I'll try some more and update when I make progress.

I understand this is early days, I'm just very excited about the idea and wanted to get my hands dirty.

So the issue with "wrong architecture" was that while I'm on a 64bit OS Zend Server's PHP is complied in 32 bit. The solution was to run install like so:

sudo CFLAGS=-m32 CPPFLAGS=-m32 CCASFLAGS=-m32 ./install

I can run all the unit test files without error:

$ php ../unit-tests/arithmetic.php 
$ php ../unit-tests/fibonacci.php:
$ php ../unit-tests/flow.php 
$ php ../unit-tests/nativearray.php
