I just released Amfphp 2.2. Profiler! The main feature is a performance profiler. The idea behind these new features is to help you better understand how your server shall perform live, and to give you easy access to the information you need to eliminate bottlenecks and fine-tune performance.
While working on the upcoming AmfPHP 2.2 I came upon an interesting challenge: Sending AMF typed objects without knowing the types at compile time. This would allow users of the service browser to send typed objects both with JSON and AMF. The difficulty is the following: For Flash to send an object as typed, you […]
I’ve put in quite some time in working on the next version of AmfPHP. Rather than just working in isolation and just posting when the final version is ready, I thought it would be useful to give access to preview version. Hence the first “teaser”: http://www.silexlabs.org/179725/the-blog/amfphp-2-2-teaser-1-putting-your-code-comments-to-good-use/ Please give it a try!
I just posted an article about the pros and cons of using AMF http://www.baguetteamf.com/documentation/why-amf/ Obviously you’re advised to use Baguette AMF at the end, but I’ve tried to keep things factual, informative, and accessible.

Update: added mod_rewrite to apache config. While working on Baguette AMF, the beta testers and myself have run into the dreaded ‘segmentation fault (11)’ error. By default, you won’t get any information in your logs about what happened and you will be powerless to fix the problem. The aim of this post is to explain […]
Zend AMF smells funny, whereas AmfPHP is doing well. What happened? http://www.silexlabs.org/136374/the-blog/amfphp-survives-zend-amf/
AMF is a very compact binary format. It is however difficult to parse. AmfPHP on its own does a good job, but it takes time, as it is written in PHP. Baguette AMF is written in C, and therefore enjoys native performance. This means up to 20 times faster conversion times. This is good for […]
