PhalconPHP - A PHP Framework Available As An Extension

Phalcon framework, a new approach on PHP frameworks. PhalconPHP is an interesting PHP framework delivered as a C extension providing high performance and lower resource consumption.

What is Phalcon

Phalcon is an open source, full stack framework for PHP 5 written as a C-extension, optimized for high performance. You don’t need learn or use the C language, since the functionality is exposed as PHP classes ready for you to use. Phalcon is loosely coupled, allowing you to use its objects as glue components based on the needs of your application.

For compilation, follow the following steps:

# git clone git://
# cd cphalcon/release
# export CFLAGS="-O2 -fno-delete-null-pointer-checks"
# phpize
# ./configure --enable-phalcon
# make
# sudo make install

Then, add extension to your php.ini

And finally restart the webserver.
