Latest Stable Version License Build Status


A wrapper around GPG for stateless operations. Text and keys are passed as strings and the output is returned likewise. In the background, GpgLib creates a temporary home directory for GPG and deletes it when it is finished.


$ composer require wikimedia/gpglib


$factory = new \GpgLib\ShellGpgLibFactory();
$gpgLib = $factory->create();
$ciphertext = $gpgLib->encrypt( $cleartext, $key );

Running tests

$ composer install
$ composer test
