Baguette AMF, AmfPHP at the Speed of Light

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 […]
