Resources for PHP-GTK 2

The official site for PHP-GTK is obviously a natural must for anything related to PHP-GTK 2.

However, its resource pages links indiscriminately to fresh and useful material, and to obsolete intro-level information for the now-defunct PHP-GTK 1.

Here is my selection of current useful resources for PHP-GTK 2, for the developer who already read the advertorials, installed the environment and ran the intro tutorials, and now wants to actually create with the extension.

PHP-GTK 2 : integrating Drupal e-commerce front-office sites with back-office data

Submitted by Frederic Marand on Sun, 2006-10-08 10:00

As many other developers of e-commerce sites using Drupal, I've had to solve the problem of integrating the "front-office" store maintained in the ecommerce module with the back-office data like the actual invoicing matching legal requirements, tax documents, product ordering from suppliers, and so on, and I've had to choose a toolkit for this.

Until recently I had been using Delphi with XML-RPC to upload content and remotely monitor my sites, but I was looking for a cross-platform solution, and one that would preferably have sources available. Using Kylix for other projects and it *does* work, even with SOAP and remote data stores, but the level of support and lack of upgrades from Borland regarding it left me rather skeptical about using it for new projects. And this was not even taking into account the fact the XML-RPC for Delphi and Kylix is a poorly supported Open Source project. So what ?
