Download the PHP package carloswph/ilk without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package carloswph/ilk. 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?

Custom post types and custom taxonomies - one of the must-haves for any WP developer or web designers. They allow Wordpress websites to be turned into platforms, services and entire systems. There are thousands of ways of creating post types and taxonomies, and also a number of helper classes and wrappers. So, why do we need yet another?

Most post type helpers have something in common: they are not maintained. With Ilk, we come with a different proposal - to keep things always up-to-date, considering WP core, and launch new features and tools frequently.


Using Composer, of course: carloswph/ilk, which is the recommended way.

But you can also clone this repo and require the classes files, located in the src/folder, or even autoloading yourself, depending on the script you are using.


Yeah, we really try to keep things neat and simple. Ilk uses an Illuminati class named Pluralize, which allows you to submit just the singular post type (or taxonomy) name, and the script finds the equivalent plural in English. Perhaps we add some other languages in the future.

Regarding the logic, it is again pretty simple. All you need to do to create a new post type is instancing the Builder class, with the singular post type name:

Other class, TermBuilder, will allow you to create custom taxonomies for those post types you have just built. Logic, again, is quite simple: instatiating the class, using the singular name of the desired taxonomy as first argument and the custom post type class instance as second.

Other methods

Some other methods can be used. Commonly, we want the new post type menu to appear as submenu in a particular part of the backend. Sometimes, yet, we don't even want a menu to be shown. Both situations can be addressed with this method:

Also, as feature supports can be added anytime, they could be also removed, by using the following method:

Requires doctrine/inflector Version *
