Master: Build Status

(PH)ing (I)s (N)ot (G)NU make; it's a PHP project build system or build tool based on Apache Ant. You can do anything with it that you could do with a traditional build system like GNU make, and its use of simple XML build files and extensible PHP "task" classes make it an easy-to-use and highly flexible build framework.

Features include running PHPUnit and SimpleTest unit tests (including test result and coverage reports), file transformations (e.g. token replacement, XSLT transformation, Smarty template transformations), file system operations, interactive build support, SQL execution, CVS/SVN/GIT operations, tools for creating PEAR packages, documentation generation (DocBlox, PhpDocumentor) and much, much more.

If you find yourself writing custom scripts to handle the packaging, deploying, or testing of your applications, then we suggest looking at Phing. Phing comes packaged with numerous out-of-the-box operation modules (tasks), and an easy-to-use OO model to extend or add your own custom tasks.

Phing provides the following features:

  • Simple XML buildfiles
  • Rich set of provided tasks
  • Easily extendable via PHP classes
  • Platform-independent: works on UNIX, Windows, Mac OSX
  • No required external dependencies
  • Built for PHP5
