Tensor: Scientific Computing for PHP
A library and extension that provides objects for scientific computing in PHP.
Follow the instructions below to install either Tensor PHP or the Tensor extension.
Install Tensor PHP into your project with Composer:
$ composer require rubix/tensor
Install the Tensor extension via PECL:
$ pecl install tensor
Note: If both the library and extension are installed, the extension will take precedence.
- PHP 7.4 or above
Optional To Compile Extension
- A C compiler such as GCC, Clang, or Visual C++
- A Fortran compiler such as GFortran
- The PHP development package (source code and tooling)
- OpenBLAS development package
- LAPACKE C interface to LAPACK
- re2c 0.13.6 or later
- GNU make 3.81 or later
- autoconf 2.31 or later
- automake 1.14 or later
- Ubuntu build-essentials
Manually Compiling the Extension
Clone the repository locally using Git:
$ git clone https://github.com/RubixML/Tensor
Make sure you have all the necessary build tools installed such as a C compiler and make tools. For example, on an Ubuntu linux system you can enter the following on the command line to install the necessary dependencies.
$ sudo apt-get install make gcc gfortran php-dev libopenblas-dev liblapacke-dev re2c build-essential
Then, change into the
ext directory from the project root and run the following commands from the terminal. See this guide for more information on compiling PHP extensions with PHPize.
$ cd ./ext $ phpize $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install
Finally, add the following line to your
php.ini configuration to install the extension.
To confirm that the extension is loaded in PHP, you can run the following command.
php -m | grep tensor
