Free Windows Portable Web Development Stack

What is Winpweb?

Winpweb is a Free Windows Portable Web Development Stack. It contains Nginx, MariaDB and PHP (with composer).

There're also many plugins available which feel free for users to install the additional software based on their needs. The available plugins are MongoDB, Nodejs (with npm), Ruby (with gem), Devkit, Git, Perl/Strawberryperl (with ppm), Python/Winpython (with pip)

The package is very lightweight, only (36 MB), simple and easy to use by using CLI tools called 'pweb' for servers operation like (start, stop, config, etc.)

The portability feature will make it very easy to install and manage the software. Windows registry, users profile and settings will not be disturbed. And also any administrator authorizations will not be required all the time. It will run like as a sandbox.

It's very suitable for full stack developers to build the applications and solutions on Windows platform before they are deployed on the clouds/servers hosting.
