Download

We distribute a PHP Archive (PHAR) that contains all required dependencies of PHP CompatInfo bundled in a single file.

Make it executable, and put it into your $PATH.

$ chmod +x phpcompatinfo-5.0.1.phar
$ mv phpcompatinfo-5.0.1.phar /usr/local/bin/phpcompatinfo

$ phpcompatinfo --version

You can also immediately use the PHAR after you have downloaded it.

$ wget http://bartlett.laurent-laville.org/get/phpcompatinfo-5.0.1.phar
$ php phpcompatinfo-5.0.1.phar --version

With both methods then you have this output :

phpCompatInfo version 5.0.1 DB built Jul 04 2016 20:04:31 CEST

Other alternative installations are possible. Please refer to the documentation for details on how to do this.

Configuration

With the minimalist JSON file phpcompatinfo.json
{
    "source-providers": [
        {
            "in": ". as current",
            "name": "/\\.(php|inc|phtml)$/"
        }
    ],
    "plugins": [
    ],
    "analysers": [
    ],
    "services": [
    ]
}

Put it in your project’s folder. Alternative locations are possible. Please refer to the documentation for details on how to do this.

The JSON configuration file is no more required for basic usage. Reserved to advanced users.
