I wish there was a Ruby to PHP compiler. You program your project in Ruby, and save a lot of time, not to mention maintain readability, and then you convert it all over to PHP to it can be used by as many people as possible.

Is such a thing even possible?

    I suspect theyre different enough that without making a half-assed job of it it'd be extremely difficult to create. Anything which is designed to hybrid languages in such a way is bound to be insanely complex. Unfortunately, if you want something to work in a certain language you have to write it as such. Just try writing something in french and use babelfish to translate it around. It gets there but it dont make much sense.

    There have been sone talks about creating same sort of API than Ruby on Rails has, but I don't even know if it is possible. And there are alot of PHP snobs that don't want anything like that for PHP, for some insane reason or other. But let's continue this at tee.

    if something like this existed, we would have had it years ago, trust me. :D Zend/PHP would be selling it of course with a huge wizard to pull rabbits out of hats and all that wonderful stuff, sadly, we're not there yet.
