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.

CaptainHook is an easy to use and very flexible git hook library for php developers. It enables you to configure your git hook actions in a simple json file.

You can use CaptainHook to validate or prepare your commit messages, ensure code quality or run unit tests before you commit or push changes to git. You can automatically clear local caches or install the latest composer dependencies after pulling the latest changes.

CaptainHook makes it easy to share hooks within your team and even can make sure that everybody in your team activates the hooks locally.

You can run cli commands, use some built in validators, or write your own PHP classes that get executed by CaptainHook. For more information have a look at the documentation.


Install the CaptainHook PHAR using Phive or download the PHAR from the github release page.

Or use Composer to install CaptainHook.


After installing CaptainHook you can use the captainhook executable to create a configuration.

Now there should be a captainhook.json configuration file.

If you are not using the composer-plugin yet you have to activate the hooks manually by installing them to your local .git repository. To do so just run the following captainhook command.

Have a look at this short installation video.

Install demo

If you want to make sure your whole team uses the same hooks and you want to make sure everybody has the hooks installed you can use the CaptainHook composer-plugin as an addition.

The plugin will make sure that the hooks get activated after every composer install or update. If you don't like the extra dependency just add the following scripts command to your composer.json file instead.


Here's an example captainhook.json configuration file.
