Download the PHP package aura/html without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package aura/html. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.
Please rate this library. Is it a good library?

All versions of html with dependencies

Informations about the package html


Provides HTML escapers and helpers, including form input helpers, that can be used in any template, view, or presentation system.



This library requires PHP 5.3 or later with mbstring and/or iconv installed; we recommend using the latest available version of PHP as a matter of principle. It has no userland dependencies.

It is installable and autoloadable via Composer as aura/html.

Alternatively, download a release or clone this repository, then require or include its autoload.php file.


Scrutinizer Code Quality codecov Continuous Integration

To run the unit tests at the command line, issue composer install and then vendor/bin/phpunit at the package root. This requires Composer to be available as composer.

This library attempts to comply with PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4. If you notice compliance oversights, please send a patch via pull request.

Getting Started

The easiest way to instantiate a HelperLocator with all the available helpers is to use the HelperLocatorFactory:

Built-In Helpers

Once you have a HelperLocator, you can then use the helpers by calling them as methods on the HelperLocator instance. See the tag helpers and form helpers pages for more information.

N.b.: All built-in helpers escape values appropriately; see the various helper class internals for more information.

Custom Helpers

There are two steps to adding your own custom helpers:

  1. Write a helper class

  2. Set a factory for that class into the HelperLocator under a service name

A helper class needs only to implement the __invoke() method. We suggest extending from AbstractHelper to get access to indenting, escaping, etc., but it's not required.

The following example helper class applies ROT-13 to a string.

Now that we have a helper class, we set a factory for it into the HelperLocator under a service name. Therein, we create and return the helper class.

The service name in the HelperLocator doubles as a method name. This means we can call the helper via $this->obfuscate():

Note that we can use any service name for the helper, although it is generally useful to name the service for the helper class, and for a word that can be called as a method.

Please examine the classes in Aura\Html\Helper for more complex and powerful examples.


One of the important but menial tasks with PHP-based template systems is that of escaping output properly. Escaping output is absolutely necessary from a security perspective. This package comes with an escape() helper that has four escaping methods:

Here is a contrived example of the various escape() helper methods:

Unfortunately, escaper functionality is verbose, and can make the template code look cluttered. There are two ways to mitigate this.

The first is to assign the escape() helper to a variable, and then invoke it as a callable. Here is a contrived example of the various escaping methods as callables:

Alternatively, the Escaper class used by the escape() helper comes with four static methods to reduce verbosity and clutter: h(), a(), c(), j(), and. These escape values for HTML content values, unquoted HTML attribute values, CSS values, and JavaScript values, respectively.

N.b.: In Aura, we generally avoid static methods. However, we feel the tradeoff of less-cluttered templates can be worth using static methods in this one case.

To call the static Escaper methods in a PHP-based template, use the Escaper as a short alias name, then call the static methods on the alias. (If you did not instantiate a HelperLocatorFactory, you will need to prepare the static escaper methods by calling Escaper::setStatic(new Escaper).)

Here is a contrived example of the various static methods:
