Executioner

Build Code Coverage Scrutinizer Code Quality Code Climate Latest Stable Version Latest Unstable Version License

Executioner is a PHP library for executing system processes and applications with the ability to pass extra arguments and read CLI output results.

Requirements

This library is unit tested against PHP 7.3, 7.4, 8.0 and 8.1!

If you need to use an older version of PHP, you should instead install the 3.x version of this library (see below for details).

License

This client library is released under the MIT license, a copy of the license is provided in this package.

Installation

To install the package into your project (assuming you are using the Composer package manager) you can simply execute the following command from your terminal in the root of your project folder:

composer require ballen/executioner

If you need to use an older version of PHP, version 3.x.x supports PHP 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1 and 7.2, you can install this version using Composer with this command instead:

composer require ballen/executioner ^3.0

Usage example

Example of retrieving IP address information for the server.

use Ballen\Executioner\Executioner;

$run = new Executioner();

if (strtoupper(substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3)) === 'WIN') {
    $run->setApplication('ipconfig'); // Server is Microsoft Windows!
} else {
    $run->sudo() // Lets assume we must run 'sudo' to get the output...
        ->setApplication('ifconfig');
}
$run->execute();

// We'll simply just display the results as a plain text string...
echo $run->resultAsText();

An example of getting the PHP version number using php -v terminal command.

use Ballen\Executioner\Executioner;

/**
 * A shorthand version of using the factory method to create a new instance
 * and then chaining the other methods and getting the response.
 */
$php_version = Executioner::make('php')
    ->addArgument('-v')
    ->execute()
    ->resultAsArray();
$words = explode(' ', $php_version[0]); // Split the words from the first line of the output!
$extracted_version_number = $words[1]; // The second word in the raw outputted line should be the version number :)
echo 'The extacted version number is: ' . $extracted_version_number . '';

// The extacted version number is: 7.0.0

These examples can also be found in the examples directory.

Tests and coverage

This library is fully unit tested using PHPUnit.

I use GitHub Actions for continuous integration, which triggers tests for PHP 7.3, 7.4, 8.0 and 8.1 each time a commit is pushed.

If you wish to run the tests yourself you should run the following:

# Install the Cartographer Library (which will include PHPUnit as part of the require-dev dependencies)
composer install

# Now we run the unit tests (from the root of the project) like so:
./vendor/bin/phpunit

Code coverage can also be run, and a report generated (this does require XDebug to be installed)...

./vendor/bin/phpunit --coverage-html ./report

Support

I am happy to provide support via. my personal email address, so if you need a hand drop me an email at: ballen@bobbyallen.me.
