V8Js class in PHP
The more I PHP I learn the more there is to learn
I've just come across the V8Js class: http://php.net/manual/en/book.v8js.php
When did they do that? Has anybody used it yet?
I googled it but there doesn't seem to be much written about the class yet
It's not in the core but as PECL extension: http://pecl.php.net/package/v8js
I see if I can find a guide on how to install a PECL ext and I might play around with it
An update on this I emailed the principle developer Jani Taskinen and he replied saying that he has retired from coding and hasn't touched it for about a year, so that's a put a dampener on my enthusiasm to try it out
Also, don't be too disheartened to hear that Jani doesn't plan to maintain the extension. For a start, I wouldn't expect too many problems with the extension as it is right now. Secondly, there is always scope for anyone else to come along and pick up the task of maintaining or further developing it. If folks are actively using the extension, then that's all the more reason for it not to get left on the wayside.
1. Judging from the download count.
2. I don't remember seeing many blog posts about it back when it was released.
