  • PHPLint is a validator and documentator for PHP 4 and PHP 5 programs. PHPLint extends the PHP language through transparent meta-code that can drive the parser to a even more strict check of the source. PHPLint is not simply a checker: it implements a new, strong typed, language implemented over the PHP language.





  • PECL is a repository for PHP Extensions, providing a directory of all known extensions and hosting facilities for downloading and development of PHP extensions. The packaging and distribution system used by PECL is shared with its sister, PEAR.

  • Composer is a tool for dependency management in PHP. It allows you to declare the dependent libraries your project needs to install to run. Composer is not a package manager. It deals with "packages" or libraries, but it manages them on a per-project basis, installing them in a directory (e.g. vendor) inside your project. By default it will never install anything globally. Thus, it is a dependency manager. Strongly inspired by node's npm and ruby's bundler.
    • Packagist is a Composer package repository. It lets you find packages and lets Composer know where to get the code from. You can use Composer to manage your project or libraries' dependencies - read more about it on the Composer website.


  • PHPCR - The PHP Content Repository is an adaption of the Java Content Repository (JCR) standard, an open API specification defined in JSR-283. The API defines how to handle hierarchical semi-structured data in a consistent way.
