This repository has become too complex for a scaffolding. We believe that spliting this repository into two might be helpful for the two common and different use cases: cli-app or website.

Therefore, we have decided to deprecate this repository in favor of:

Phel Scaffolding

Phel is a functional programming language that compiles to PHP.

This repository provides you the basic setup to start coding phel.

Getting started


Phel requires at least PHP 8.0 and Composer. You can either use it from your local machine OR using docker.

  • This repository contains the basic Dockerfile to run phel.

Locally (no Docker)

  1. Ensure you have PHP >=8.0 (Some help about how to install multiple PHP versions locally on linux and Mac)
  2. Ensure you have composer
  3. Clone this repo
  4. Install the dependencies | composer install

Using Docker

  1. Clone this repo
  2. Build the image | docker-compose up -d --build
  3. Go inside the console | docker exec -ti -u dev phel_scaffolding bash
  4. Install the dependencies | composer install

Phel code

  1. Write your phel code in src/
  2. Execute your code with ./vendor/bin/phel run src/command/main.phel
  3. Or with a PHP server with php -S localhost:8080 -t ./src/web


  1. Write your phel tests in tests/
  2. Execute your tests with ./vendor/bin/phel test
