Build Environment

You need to have docker and docker-compose command installed in your local environment to build a new phar file.

Put up the server dependencies

docker-compose up -d

ssh to the container

docker-compose exec cli bash

execute the build command

cd /code

The compiled phar file should now be available in /code/dist/yourapp.phar
You can then upload it to your web server and let the users download/install it by:

wget http://downloads.yourdomain.com/yourapp.phar
sudo mv yourapp.phar  /usr/local/bin/yourapp
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/yourapp
yourapp -V

shutdown the containers

docker-compose down
