This is the recommended installation method.

curl -O
mv workshop-manager.phar /usr/local/bin/workshop-manager
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/workshop-manager
workshop-manager verify


If you install the workshop-manager via composer you will need to make sure that you don't have conflicting dependencies with other globally installed tools. Also you will need to be able to use the self-update and rollback commands.

You will need to make sure that your composer global bin directory is available in your $PATH environment variable.

composer global require php-school/workshop-manager
workshop-manager verify

This snippet downloads the phar package (an executable PHP package) and moves it to a common install directory, makes it executable and then runs the workshop manager's verify command. You should see some green success messages if everything went will.

Keeping the workshop manager up to date is just as important as updated the workshops themselves. We're not perfect and there are probably bugs, or maybe we'll launch some uber cool features, either way you should run this on a regular basis.

 workshop-manager self-update

You can then continue using the workshop manager as you were before.


Something go horribly wrong after that self-update ? No worries we got your back 😉 just run...

 workshop-manager rollback

Then you might want to create an issue for that horrible bug you found 😂


You might need to verify your installation if your running into problems. This command will help diagnose those issues and point you in the right direction.

 workshop-manager verify


We welcome all contributions, new workshops, typos, feature requests bug fixes and so on.

To contribute to the code just clone the project, do your changes and make sure all the tests run.

Adding Workshops

We'd love to add your workshop so it can be installed with the workshop manager. To do so just fill in the form and let us take a look at things, we'll be pretty quick at getting it added!

Deveopment Executable

Whilst developing awesome new features you'll want to use the source executable and not a built phar file. To do so just run the following...

php bin/workshop-manager


Hmmmmm tests, we all love a good test! To run the suite use PHPUnit like so...

composer test
