The suggested installation method is via composer:

composer require doctrine/instantiator


The instantiator is able to create new instances of any class without using the constructor or any API of the class itself:

$instantiator = new \Doctrine\Instantiator\Instantiator();

$instance = $instantiator->instantiate(\My\ClassName\Here::class);

This library was migrated from ocramius/instantiator, which has been donated to the doctrine organization, and which is now deprecated in favour of this package.
