You can use sync or async, coroutine, fiber API to write the applications or create thousands of light weight fibers within one Linux process.
Open Swoole enhances the efficiency of your PHP applications and brings you out of the traditional stateless model, enabling you to focus on the development of innovative products at high scale, bringing event loops and asynchronous programming to the PHP language.
Open Swoole is an open source production ready high performance coroutine fiber async solution for PHP, previously named Swoole.
