About php.vbs

php.vbs is a resource that offers community-built VBScript alternatives to PHP functions.

Why on earth would you port php to vbs?

to see if we can
to learn VBScript
to help others learn VBScript
to profit from helpful functions like: strip_tags, strtotime, md5, strftime, number_format, wordwrap, vsprintf, and date, that are too high-level for VBScript.
PHP is a language with many high-level functions and while they’re not always implemented as consistently as we’d like (mimicking their underlying C parts), they do get many programming jobs done without the need for additional libraries or abstraction.

We recognize VB has beautiful language features, and we encourage you to learn them (never let php.vbs be an excuse not to!).

And so we see ourselves as this big resource and leave it up to the developer to decide what makes sense to take from it.

And what not.

Going by The McDonald’s Theory we have plently of functions online that aren’t perfect just yet. If you know better ways, just send us a pull request : )
