What is Pharpiler?

Pharpiler is a simple, yet highly configurable, command line tool to compile composer based php projects into a phar file.

Why Pharpiler?

I (@discordier) got tired of writing custom compile scripts for each and every phar project I was developing over and over again which mostly consisted of copy&paste code from each project. Hence there definately was need for reduction of code duplication and so Pharpiler was born.

How to use?

In your project run composer require --dev cyberspectrum/pharpiler and create a .pharpiler.yml in your project root.


The .pharpiler.yml allows for many configuration options, have a look at the configuration of Pharpiler itself in this repository (yes, Pharpiler compiles itself).

Within the configuration you may use certain parameters.

You may define own parameters in the root level to reduce recurrences. Example:

  - my-parameter: "Hello World"

However, Pharpiler registers some parameters for each package to ease configuration. Package root dir: %package:[vendor]/[package-name]% Package version: %version:[vendor]/[package-name]% Package release date: %date:[vendor]/[package-name]%

# First off, tell what the desired phar name should be.
phar: pharpiler.phar

# Now we need to declare some compile tasks.
  # We want to add a composer package.
  - type: add-package

    # The name of the package.
    # NOTE: you most likely. want to add your root package here as first.
    name: cyberspectrum/pharpiler

    # Optional flag to include all requirements of the package
    # default: true
    # You may specify a list of package names instead of true or false.
    # include_require: true

    # Optional flag to include all development requirements of the package.
    # default: false
    # You may specify a list of package names instead of true or false.
    # include_requiredev: false

    # Optionally list package names that shall get omitted.
    #  - phpcq/all-tasks

    # Define file name pattern for files to get included.
    # You can specify glob and regex patterns here.
    # NOTE: this example makes use of YAML references.
    include_files: &default_include_files
      # Include all php files.
      - "*.php"
      # Include all the license files.
      - "(LICENSE\\.?.*)"
    # Define file name patterns of files to exclude.
    # You can specify glob and regex patterns here.
    # NOTE: this example makes use of YAML references.
    exclude_files: &default_exclude_files
      # We do not want to include unit tests.
      - "(.*[Tt]ests?\/)"
      - "*tests/*.php"

    # You may override the "include_files", "exclude_files" on a per package 
    # basis and can even move files around by specifying "rewrite_paths".
      # Override settings for package "cyberspectrum/pharpiler"
          # Import the previously defined default includes.
          - *default_include_files
          # Additionally add the file "bin/pharpiler" from said package.
          - "%package:cyberspectrum/pharpiler%/bin/pharpiler"
          # Import the previously defined default excludes.
          - *default_exclude_files
          # Additionally omit the files within phar directories.
          - "*/phar/*"
          # Here you can rewrite path portions.
          src: /src

      # Symfony has some tester classes we do not want to add - so let's skip them.
          - *default_exclude_files
          - "(Tester\/)"

  # A real phar file needs a stub, here you tell pharpiler to set it.
  - type: set-stub
    # The stub file must be accessible from anywhere within the composer project.
    stub_file: %package:cyberspectrum/pharpiler%/phar/stub.php

  # We most of the times also need to add the autoload information.
  - type: composer-autoload
    # Pharpiler can optimize the autoload information to remove anything which
    # got excluded by any other setting.
    # Default: true
    optimize: true

# For some files it is necessary to alter the file contents.
# To do so, you may specify a list of filters which alter file contents.
# Currently there are the following types of filters registered:
# - replace      Which performs simple search and replace on the file contents.
# - php-strip    Which removes all comments and trailing whitespace while
#                maintaining line numbers.
# - warning-time Creates a timestamp in the future - useful for selfupdate
#                notices etc.
    # Define the file names to be matched by this rewrite.
