How to create your own Badge

  • Go to the Badge Poser website
  • Insert username/repository and click on Show
  • That's it! Copy the Markdown into the README.md

Why a composer badge?

Not only because all the other languages already have it, but having the latest stable release in the readme could save time.


Active contribution and patches are very welcome. See the github issues. There are some tagged as easy-pick. To keep things in shape we have a bunch of unit tests. If you're submitting pull requests please make sure that they are still passing and if you add functionality please take a look at the coverage as well, it should be pretty high. :)

  • First, fork or clone the repository:
git clone git://github.com/PUGX/badge-poser.git
cd badge-poser
  • Install vendors:
php composer.phar self-update
php composer.phar install
  • Run phpunit:
  • Production
