This library aims at providing simple tools that help deciding whether a class should or shouldn't be declared as final.

Install via composer:

php composer.phar require ocramius/finalizer:~1.0


In your console, simply type:

./vendor/bin/finalizer finalizer:check-final-classes path/to/directory
./vendor/bin/finalizer finalizer:check-final-classes also/supports multiple/directories as/parameters

Note that finalizer will take decisions on whether classes should or shouldn't be final depending on the classes defined in the directories that you passed to it.

Additionally, be aware that finalizer will (in its current state) require any of the PHP or Hack files in the given directories and include them via require_once.


If you need to know more about why I wrote this library, and what kind of decisions it is doing, then please read this blogpost about the usage of the final keyword.
