We’re going to need easy ways to help people get up and running. To start with we’re aiming for vagrant boxes to help with quick development setup (joepferguson is in charge). We’ll also need windows boxes, and possibly some different virtual backends (parallels, hyper-v, vmware) for the php7dev box beyond virtualbox
Below is a list of development environments that can be used to build PHP 7 and test extensions.
- Rasmus’ PHP 7 Dev Box - actually contains all versions of PHP and easy ways to switch, update and recompile them.
- Windows 7 for compiling PHP 7
- PHPBrew - PHP CLI application to easily install various versions of PHP including master branch.
