Projects / PHK


PHK is a library and application packager. It is a sort of PHP-oriented jar. As such, it allows you to distribute and run a whole application as a single file. It includes many features and options, such as on-the-fly decompression, Web access restriction, CRC consistency checks, digital signatures, meta-packages, an integrated autoloader, etc. PHK also provides a standard way to display every information about the package, like its documentation and license, through an embedded mini-website called webinfo mode.

          Release Notes: En embedded subpackage is now autoloaded when one of its symbols is referenced. This feature is recursive, exporting package symbols to the upper layer. It brings an alternative to the 'automount' option that had to be used in previous versions. It also makes PHK behave as a real 'PHP runtime linker'.
