It occurs to me that though I wrote an introduction post about Pango for PHP, I forgot to mention that it’s actually installable using the PECL installer.
pecl channel-discover pecl.mgdm.net pecl install channel://pecl.mgdm.net/Pango-0.1.0
Assuming you have the required development packages installed, it should go off and install it. You may still need to add the
line to your php.ini. Hope this helps someone give it a go! As ever, any feedback is welcome.
