This repository contains PHP-related formulae for Homebrew.

(This replaces the php formulae that used to live under adamv's homebrew-alt repository.)

The purpose of this repository is to allow PHP developers to quickly retrieve working, up-to-date formulae. The mainline homebrew repositories are maintianed by non-php developers, so testing/maintaining PHP-related brews has fallen by the wayside. If you are a PHP developer using homebrew, please contribute to this repository.

Quick Start

To install homebrew-php formulae, use one of the following:

  • brew install [raw GitHub URL]
  • brew install [full path to formula from your local homebrew-php clone]

For more details, see below: "Installing homebrew-php Formulae".

How This Repository Is Organized

  • Formula
    These brews provide php-related functionality, whether they be extensions, dependencies, or the PHP-Core itself.

    (Homebrew policy discourages duplicates, except in some specific cases.)
