Pake is a command line utility for executing predefined tasks, inspired by rake. It is written in PHP and the tasks are also described in PHP.
Pake supports tasks with prerequisites. Pake can be bundled with your application as a single phar archive (or even as a single PHP file), end users don’t need to install Pake on their systems.
Pake can be used for compiling projects from different pieces, generating code, preprocessing templates and deploying projects.
