Failed to load latest commit information.


PropertiesLib is a simple-to-use PHP component for easily managing system-wide and per-user settings files.

System-Wide Installation

PropertiesLib should be installed using the PEAR Installer. This installer is the PHP community's de-facto standard for installing PHP components.

sudo pear channel-discover
sudo pear install --alldeps phix/PropertiesLib

As A Dependency On Your Component

If you are creating a component that relies on PropertiesLib, please make sure that you add LicenseLib to your component's package.xml file:



The best documentation for PropertiesLib are the unit tests, which are shipped in the package. You will find them installed into your PEAR repository, which on Linux systems is normally /usr/share/php/test.

You can find them online on GitHub:

Development Environment

If you want to patch or enhance this component, you will need to create a suitable development environment, by installing phix.

You can then clone the git repository:

# PropertiesLib
git clone

Then, install a local copy of this component's dependencies to complete the development environment:

# build vendor/ folder
phing build-vendor

To make life easier for you, common tasks (such as running unit tests, generating code review analytics, and creating the PEAR package) have been automated using phing. You'll find the automated steps inside the build.xml file that ships with the component.

Run the command 'phing' in the component's top-level folder to see the full list of available automated tasks.
