Hip hop (disambiguation)
Appeared in 2010

HipHop for PHP is a source code transformer. HipHop programmatically transforms PHP source code into highly optimized C++ and then uses g++ to compile it. HipHop includes a code transformer, a reimplementation of PHP's runtime system, and a rewrite of many common PHP Extensions to take advantage of these performance optimizations. [1]

HipHop has been created by Facebook to save resources on their servers. They decided to release the code on February 2, 2010 as opensource. See

They also developed HPHPi, which is an experimental interpreter designed for development with no need to compile the PHP source code before running it.
