Instead of downloading PHP code and figuring out how it fits into your project structure, use PEAR, PECL, and Composer to do it for you. Composer manages libraries for your PHP project, PEAR installs packages for your entire server, and PECL compiles extensions directly into PHP itself. In this course, author Joseph LeBlanc demonstrates how to find, install, update, and remove packages with this suite of invaluable PHP tools.
(music playing) Welcome to Up and Running with PHP, PEAR, PECL, and COMPOSER. I'm Joe LeBlanc, and in this course, we'll look at defining dependencies for a new project with COMPOSER. Then we'll use a generated auto-loader to initialize objects. Next, we'll install PEAR and PECL on Windows, MAC-OX 10, and Ubunto Linux. Then finally, we'll maintain installed PEAR and PECL extensions.
PEAR, PECL and COMPOSER are waiting to install all the packages you need for your next PHP project. So let's get up and running.
