Run Drupal Forever With ReactPHP


Some PHP experience is needed, although I will be going over some topics like streams and closures in order to bring everyone up to speed.

Session details

ReactPHP is a non-blocking I/O, written in pure PHP. This tool can be used to create low-level utilities such as command line interaction and network client and servers.

In this session I will cover:

  • What ReactPHP is.
  • Some concepts that need to be understood to use it.
  • Streams and closures in PHP.
  • Sockets in PHP.
  • Some example applications that can be written using it, including a chat application.

I will also go through efforts made to get Drupal 8 running in ReactPHP, and why this is a benefit.

Key takeaways

  • An understanding of ReactPHP and how to use it.
  • An understanding of what streams and closures are, and why they are important to use with ReactPHP
  • What roles ReactPHP can play in your organisation.
  • What ReactPHP can do for Drupal.
