Features

shared.phar is a streets ahead PHP autoloader.

  • Self-contained in a single compressed Phar .
  • Can be updated easily from the command line or implicitly.
  • Is class-map based and handles identifiers PHP-compliant.
  • Phar collections become first class citizens, as both plain *.php scripts and phar://* packages are scanned for identifier declarations.
  • Indifferent to PSR-0/4 constraints, works atop any legacy or custom directory scheme.
  • Prepares rfc:function_autoloading userland support.
  • Can be used project-locally and for /usr/share/php handling.
  • And for deployment is just copied along with the classpath.

Also it's placed into the Public Domain.

Usage

It can be utilized easily with:

 include_once("shared.phar");

And updated manually on the command line:

 php ./shared.phar

Or implicitly on development setups by pre-declaring an environment variable.
