Download the PHP package aura/marshal without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package aura/marshal. 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?

Informations about the package marshal

Aura Marshal

marshal (verb): to arrange in proper order; set out in an orderly manner; arrange clearly: to marshal facts; to marshal one's arguments. --

The Aura Marshal package is a data-object marshalling tool. It takes results from data sources and marshals those result sets into domain model objects of your own design, preserving data relationships along the way.



This library requires PHP 7.2 or later; 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/marshal.

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.

You can use any database access layer you like with Aura Marshal, such as ...

... or anything else. (In theory, you should be able to retrieve data from XML, CSV, Mongo, or anything else, and load it into Aura Marshal.)

With Aura Marshal, you use the data retrieval tools of your choice and write your own queries to retrieve data from a data source. You then load that result data into an entity type object, and it creates entity and collection objects for you based on a mapping scheme you define for it.

Aura Marshal makes it easy to avoid the N+1 problem when working with a domain model. It also uses an identity map (per type) to avoid retaining multiple copies of the same object.

It is important to remember that Aura Marshal, despite resembling an ORM in many ways, it not an ORM proper:

Those things are outside the scope of the Aura Marshal package. Their absence does provide a great amount of flexibility for power users who write their own hand-tuned SQL and need a way to marshal their result sets into a domain model, especially in legacy codebases.

Aura Marshal works by using Type objects (which define the entity types in the domain model). Each Type has a definition indicating its identity field, how to build entities and collections, and the relationships to other Type objects. The Type objects are accessed through a type Manager. You load data into each Type in the Manager, then you retrieve entities and collections from each Type.
