Welcome to Maple!

Maple providers the task runner you always wanted but never dared to ask for.

Notice for production usage

Maple is current in active development (say beta state) production use can be done if you're one of the brave (if you are please let me know how you like it in production!)

Installation per project

Just your regular dependency should do the trick!

composer require xantios/maple

After running composer add a maple-config.php to the work directory of your project and run:


Global installation

If you use Maple a lot, maybe install it globally. composer global require xantios/maple should do the trick!

when you run the maple command make sure there is a config in your current directory.


The configuration file is a plain PHP array, it is pretty self-explanatory


return [
    // Host to listen on (defaults to
    # 'host' => '',

    // Port for web interface to listen on (defaults to 8100)
    # 'port' => 8100,
    // Verbose logging
    'verbose' => true,
    // Tasks available 
    'tasks' => [
            'name' => "Run webpack",
            'retries' => 0,
            'autostart' => true,
            'cmd' => 'npm run dev'
            'name' => "Some process that keeps on exiting but needs to be running",
            'retries' => -1,
            'autostart' => true,
            'cmd' => 'ping -t 3 ; sleep 5'
        // Run multiple tasks back-to-back 
            'name' => 'Jan-1',
            'after' => 'Jan-2',
            'autostart' => true,
            'cmd' => 'sleep 1',
            'name' => 'Jan-2',
            'after' => 'Jan-3',
            'cmd' => 'sleep 1',
            'name' => 'Jan-3',
            'after' => '',
            'cmd' => 'sleep 1',
