Ever wanted to create simple tools for yourself, using the power of PHP or Python? Now you can compile your scripts to EXE files and run them like any other console program! You don't need a browser or a web server to get things done.
Version: 2.0Sometimes the easiest way to do a relatively simple job is to write a script. After the success of phpFlexer, here's RapidEXE from the same developer (D.
Operating System: Windows
Kellner) - this can pack up practically any portable environment along with your scripts to turn the whole thing into a standalone, self-managing EXE program! PHP and Python support are included & preconfigured, but you can even add your own engine!
Compilation is fast, it creates an EXE with a compressed payload which will be extracted in about one second, maybe less; and it all happens behind the scenes, it's fully transparent, you'll only feel that you start the exe and your scripts are running almost immediately.
This tool is simple but powerful.
A lot more straightforward than to pack things up with RAR as a self-extracting archive, a lot more efficient than window-based heavyweight compilers with built-in web server emulation, and a lot smaller too; it's what you need, without what you don't.
No more asking your clients or friends to install PHP to run your script; no more worries about the local ini settings or different engine versions; your exe carries its own micro-environment wherever it goes.
Supports PHP up to 7.2 and Python up to 3.7 - at the time of this release, these are the latest. (A legacy PHP version is also included for creating XP-compatible programs.)
Side note: RapidEXE creates console applications, it's not for window-based ones. While it's possible to build a GUI in it, window interfaces typically work best with ExeOutput or ZZEE.
Sure there's a price to pay in size, startup time and complexity, but sometimes it's totally worth it.
