US-based software development company Spiral Scout has announced the launch of its second MIT-licensed software product, RoadRunner, following the release of their first open source PHP framework, Spiral.
As described by the company, RoadRunner is a multithreaded PHP application server library for Golang that enhances the classic setup of PHP with a vastly improved performance capacity.
As a high-performance PHP application server, load balancer and process manager, RoadRunner lets developers use Golang to manage PHP applications on an infrastructure level to offload unnecessary options to a more optimized frontend.
This open-source solution enables developers to write smaller PHP applications with greater functionality and let them easily customize their existing PHP applications, all while dramatically reducing infrastructure costs and development speed.
Spiral Scout has used RoadRunner in their enterprise-level client’s software and witnessed significant improvements in the application’s performance and efficiency as well as sizeable reductions in development time.
RoadRunner’s community of open source developers is growing
Anton Titov, co-founder of Spiral Scout and creator of RoadRunner, claimed that over 50,000 developers downloaded RoadRunner from Github in the last three months.
Spiral Scout has also created a RoadRunner developer’s site that offers documentation, bug reporting and a way to connect with the RoadRunner creators about using the application for individual or commercial projects.
“Open-source development is more important than ever. Sharing code not only helps the creators discover new use cases for their products and improve implementation, but it also inspires innovation among other developers too,” said Titov.
He added, “Our next step is to keep sharing RoadRunner and illustrate how PHP can support high-performance backends and still reduce the cost of development.”
Spiral Scout provides web development, UI/UX design, mobile app development and search engine marketing services to a variety of industries including eCommerce, ed-tech and e-learning.
