Download the PHP package carloswph/phell without Composer

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


Linux system monitor utilities offer a comprehensive way of checking and monitoring any server. However, not everyone wants or is able to be checking the command line all times. Also, as those commands use to return unformatted strings, it becomes challenging to process or store such data in a more friendly way.

This wrapper offers classes to execute and retrieve common shell system commands and return data in a PHP-friendly way. Available classes/commands:


This package can be installed using Composer composer require carloswph/phell


Using Composer, you need to use the classes correspondent to the shell commands you want data to be gotten and parsed. Additionally, you may want to use the enum class Params(), which provides constants to modify and apply parameters to the shell commands you are working with.

Using 'man' command

Using the command 'man' is somewhat different than using all the others. As per getting a response, one must provide the bash command for which the manual is required. So, while instantiating the class, you must pass the bash command as parameter.

Adding a new command

Of course you can use the main abstract class to manage any other shell command and add new classes. For such, the only mandatory method will be process(), using the protected visibility, and the sole necessary property being $command, in which you will declare your new shell command, like this:

Additionally, even though you can always find another way of processing additional parameters in your new command, we encourage you to use the enum class Params to do that - as some of the necessary parameters could be possibly around there yet.

Commands available

This package in a work in progress, so new commands will be added eventually. Keep checking the README file and updating the package to get access to all of them.
