Running PHP Applications on .NET Core

Ever wondered about mixing up the simplicity and flexibility of PHP with the power and performance of .NET Core? The solution is coming and it is called Peachpie, the successor of Phalanger. This blog post introduces Peachpie – the tool to compile PHP code to .NET Core – and helps you to get started with it.
Why Peachpie?
For years there was a thing called Phalanger that lived a silent life somewhere on the internet. At least it didn’t make its way to my work desk. Now, years later, it is reincarnated as Peachpie and now it looks really promising. Peachpie allows us to build and run PHP code on .NET Core. For example, they made WordPress run on .NET Core (fairly successfully).
