TasksLib2 is a simple-to-use PHP component that provides a collection of classes that automate common repetitive tasks. It was originally created to stop individual Phix commands duplicating code, but it's generic enough to be useful to a wider range of projects.

System-Wide Installation

TasksLib 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/TasksLib2

As A Dependency On Your Component

If you are creating a component that relies on TasksLib2, please make sure that you add TasksLib2 to your component's package.xml file:



The best documentation for TasksLib 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.

Development Environment

If you want to patch or enhance this component, you will need to create a suitable development environment. The easiest way to do that is to install phix4componentdev:

# phix4componentdev
sudo apt-get install php5-xdebug
sudo apt-get install php5-imagick
sudo pear channel-discover
sudo pear -D auto_discover=1 install -Ba phix/phix4componentdev

You can then clone the git repository:

# TasksLib
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.
