Installing QueryPath

The following packages of QueryPath are available:

  • PEAR package (pear install querypath/QueryPath): Installs the library and documentation.
  • Phar (QueryPath-VERSION.phar): This is a Phar package which can be used as-is. Its size has been minimized by stripping comments. It is designed for direct inclusion in PHP 5.3 applications.
  • Minimal (QueryPath-VERSION-minimal.tgz): This contains only the QueryPath library, with no documentation or additional build environment. It is designed for production systems.
  • Full (QueryPath-VERSION.tgz): This contains QueryPath, its unit tests, its documentation, examples, and all supporting material. If you are starting with QueryPath, this might be the best package.
  • Docs (QueryPath-VERSION-docs.tgz): This package contains only the documentation for QueryPath. Generally, this is useful to install as a complement to the minimal package.
  • Git repository clone: You can always clone this repository and work from that code.

If in doubt, you probably want the PEAR version or the Full package.

$ pear channel-discover
$ pear install querypath/QueryPath

To use QueryPath as a standard PHP library, simply put it somewhere PHP can see it and include QueryPath/QueryPath.php (that's in src/ in the full distro).

To use QueryPath as a phar package, put the phar somewhere where PHP can see it and include QueryPath.phar.

To use QueryPath as a PEAR package (assuming to have already installed it with PEAR), include QueryPath/QueryPath.php.

From there, the main functions you will want to use are qp() and htmlqp(). Start with the API docs.
