Fork of Symfony's Filesystem component compatible with PHP 5.2+.


Symfony's Filesystem component is a fantastic filesystem library, but it's only compatible with PHP 5.3+. While 99% of PHP servers run PHP 5.2 or higher, 13% of all servers are still running PHP 5.2 or lower (source).

Differences from Symfony's Filesystem component

The primary difference is naming conventions of the Symfony classes. Instead of the \Symfony\Component\Filesystem namespace (and sub-namespaces), prefix the Symfony class names with ehough_filesystem and follow the PEAR naming convention

An examples of class naming conversion:

\Symfony\Component\Filesystem\Filesystem   ----->    ehough_filesystem_Filesystem



$filesystem = new ehough_filesystem_Filesystem();

$filesystem->copy($originFile, $targetFile, $override = false);

$filesystem->mkdir($dirs, $mode = 0777);

$filesystem->touch($files, $time = null, $atime = null);



$filesystem->chmod($files, $mode, $umask = 0000, $recursive = false);

$filesystem->chown($files, $user, $recursive = false);

$filesystem->chgrp($files, $group, $recursive = false);

$filesystem->rename($origin, $target);

$filesystem->symlink($originDir, $targetDir, $copyOnWindows = false);

$filesystem->makePathRelative($endPath, $startPath);

$filesystem->mirror($originDir, $targetDir, \Traversable $iterator = null, $options = array());


Releases and Versioning

Releases are synchronized with the upstream Symfony repository. e.g. ehough/filesystem v2.3.1 has merged the code from Symfony/Filesystem v2.3.1.
