Download the PHP package open-telemetry/context without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package open-telemetry/context. 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?

OpenTelemetry Context

Immutable execution scoped propagation mechanism, for further details see opentelemetry-specification.



Implicit propagation

It is recommended to use a try-finally statement after ::activate() to ensure that the created scope is properly ::detach()ed.

Debug scopes

By default, scopes created by ::activate() warn on invalid and missing calls to ::detach() in non-production environments. This feature can be disabled by setting the environment variable OTEL_PHP_DEBUG_SCOPES_DISABLED to a truthy value. Disabling is only recommended for applications using exit / die to prevent unavoidable notices.

Async applications

Fiber support - automatic context propagation to newly created fibers

Requires an NTS build, ext-ffi, and setting the environment variable OTEL_PHP_FIBERS_ENABLED to a truthy value. Additionally vendor/autoload.php has to be preloaded for non-CLI SAPIs if ffi.enable is set to preload.

Event loops

Event loops have to restore the original context on callback execution. A basic implementation could look like the following, though implementations should avoid keeping unnecessary references to arguments if possible:


This repository is a read-only git subtree split. To contribute, please see the main OpenTelemetry PHP monorepo.
