Download the PHP package cboden/ratchet without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package cboden/ratchet. 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.

Informations about the package ratchet


GitHub Actions Autobahn Testsuite Latest Stable Version

A PHP library for asynchronously serving WebSockets. Build up your application through simple interfaces and re-use your application without changing any of its code just by combining different components.

Reviving Ratchet!

We're currently aiming to revive Ratchet to get it up to date with the latest versions and use this as a starting point for bigger updates to come. We need your help to achieve this goal, see ticket #1054 for ways to help out. ❤️


Shell access is required and root access is recommended. To avoid proxy/firewall blockage it's recommended WebSockets are requested on port 80 or 443 (SSL), which requires root access. In order to do this, along with your sync web stack, you can either use a reverse proxy or two separate machines. You can find more details in the server conf docs.


User and API documentation is available on Ratchet's website:
