Q: How is Pake better than Phing?
A: Pake uses usual php-syntax for task-definitions, so you don’t need to learn new awkward XML-based syntax. Pakefile is a normal php-script spiced by helper-functions which let you achieve task-goals easier. As a side-effect, pake works a bit faster, as there is no need to parse XML-file.
Q: Pake limits output to 80 columns, but my terminal is much wider. Can this be fixed?
A: Sure. Pake uses bash’s window size detection mechanism, when it’s available. To enable it, add the following to your .bashrc file:
shopt -s checkwinsize export COLUMNS
