I've been running CLI-based PHP scripts for scripting and more complex "applications" since the CLI was introduced back in PHP 4.3. As time has gone along, the applications have become more complex and varied. I only use some of these applications every few months, so it's easy to forget how to run the application without the guidance provided by a GUI.
For quite some time I've been looking for something along the lines of HyperCard whereby I can put together a simple GUI without too much work; however, this would be in the context of my existing PHP scripts.
I could always put on a GUI by using HTML and running the scripts under a web server. But I have a lot of these scripts all over the place, and I just don't want to bother with the Apache configuration needed to set these up.
After some experimentation, it seems like I'll try using PHP-GTK. I know this has been around for a while, but without a lot of documentation nor acceptance in the PHP community. I'll update with some of my experiences with PHP-GTK.
