How to install


Simply add stevenkellow/php-plus to your composer.json file.


Simply download PHP Plus and put the folder somewhere within your project.

Then, just add one line of code into a project file (replacing PATH_TO_PHP_PLUS with the directory of the folder )

include_once( PATH_TO_PHP_PLUS . '/classes/php-plus.php' );

and you'll be done.

How to use

Version 1.1 comes with a loader, so you can choose when to include PHP Plus and which files you need.

To run with all functions, simply use:


This method accepts two paramaters, $include and $exclude so you can fine tune which files to load.

If you only want to load certain files, add them to the include array like so:

PHPPlus::load( array( 'constants', 'math' ) );

If you want to exclude certain files, add them to the exclude array like so:

PHPPlus::load( false, array( 'strings', 'security' ) );

The include paramater defaults to using all files, while the exclude paramater defaults to excluding no files, so there's no real need to mix and match those two!
