Not Planned Making sure it's running well under HipHop

    I'll admit I haven't read more than the first couple of lines myself, but I'm all for making software faster :)

    Scott already said he'd test XenForo on HipHop, once it's released.

    Heh. It pays to have connections... ;)

    One of the comments from the Facebook Engineering said: "The end result is a binary with all your PHP code and a built in web server."

    I didn't realize it included a web server. I'm more interested in how that works with static files, or if it just handles PHP (compiled or not). It would be nice to be able to replace Apache, and let something like nginx handle the static content, and Hip Hop PHP serve the PHP and/or compiled code.

    I was curious about how it handled PHP evals, and found this:
    So it just doesn't/can't compile eval'd statements?

    So this should indicate as Kier has said evil() is minimal it is used, that xenForo will not work properly.. :(

    Right. HipHop works with a subset of PHP.

    If you think about it, it makes sense... There is simply no way for HipHop to transform eval'd statements into C++ code. It doesn't understand this, for example:
    // get hook code from database
    One other downside is that you would have to recompile every single time an update is released or you make changes to the PHP source code (not really sure how mods/hooks would work with HipHop - it's scary to think about).

    Nevertheless, I would love to see XenForo running under HipHop even though I would probably never use it by myself.

    As a big board, I'd love to see this happen. I've been following HipHop since it was announced, but knew it would never be in the cards as long as I was running vBulletin. It would be cool to see Xenforo (or portions of it) running under HipHop for sure.

    eval() is a massive issue for HipHop.

    Who is this Scott guy and how did he obtain XF?

    Scott is an ex-developer for vBulletin under Jelsoft.
    He is a good friend of both Mike and Kier.

    He's one of the HipHop devs as well :)

    Good to know, although I would like to know how eval() is handled. For most board owners this won't be a realistic (or necessary) solution. You would need to recompile every time you change a template or CSS or something. :)

    Can someone explain in simple terms what HipHop is?

    I know its a joke but I don't appreciate it.. too many threads are being spammed with annoying, immature posts like yours, no offense but it's starting to get to me.
