SimplePhar

What's this?

SimplePhar is a command line tool to simplify the generation of PHP Archives.

Synopsis

php /path/to/compile.phar [target]

Prerequisites

  • minimum PHP 5.3
  • Disabled phar.readonly Setting in php.ini

Usage

When compile.phar is invoked, it looks for a file named Pharfile in the target directory. If no target is given, the script looks in the current working directory for the Pharfile. This file is written in a php.ini style syntax. Let's take a look at SimplePhar's Pharfile:

dist_path    = "bin/compile.phar"
file_paths[] = "src"
cli_stub     = "src/cli.php"

The Pharfile consists of some simple directives:

dist_path
Path where the generated PHAR file should be placed
file_paths
An Array of Paths relative to the Pharfile's directory. All .php files in these paths are added to the PHAR
cli_stub
Path relative to the Pharfile's directory to your Bootstrap file. Make sure that this file is located within one of the file_paths.
license_file
Path to an optional LICENSE file which should be also included in the PHAR

That's it! Now simply point php compile.phar at your Project's directory and the PHAR File will appear in the directory you specified as dist_path.
