Thank you for using PHING!

PHing Is Not GNU make; it's a PHP project build system or build tool based on Apache Ant. You can do anything with it that you could do with a traditional build system like GNU make, and its use of simple XML build files and extensible PHP "task" classes make it an easy-to-use and highly flexible build framework.

Features include running PHPUnit unit tests (including test result and coverage reports), file transformations (e.g. token replacement, XSLT transformation, template transformations), file system operations, interactive build support, SQL execution, SCM operations (Git, Subversion and Mercurial), documentation generation (PhpDocumentor, ApiGen) and much, much more.

If you find yourself writing custom scripts to handle the packaging, deploying, or testing of your applications, then we suggest looking at Phing. Pre-packaged with numerous out-of-the-box operation modules (tasks), and an easy-to-use OO model to extend or add your own custom tasks.

For more information and documentation, you can visit our official website at

Phing 3 is a significant update with some breaking changes compared to Phing 2. For details, please refer to the file.

Supported PHP versions

Phing 3.x is compatible with PHP 7.4 and higher.


  1. Composer

The preferred method to install Phing is through Composer. Add phing/phing to the require-dev or require section of your project's composer.json configuration file, and run 'composer install':

         "require-dev": {
             "phing/phing": "3.0.x-dev"
  1. Phar

Download the Phar archive. The archive can then be executed by running:

     $ php phing-latest.phar
  1. Docker (experimental)

The official Phing Docker image can be found on Docker Hub.

To execute Phing inside a container and execute build.xml located in /home/user, run the following:

     $ docker run --rm -v /home/user:/opt phing/phing:3.0 -f /opt/build.xml
  1. Phing GitHub Action

The official GitHub action phingofficial/phing-github-action is available on GitHub Marketplace.

To Run a Phing Build as an action, you need to setup a .github/workflow/phing.yml workflow file and paste the following snipped:

 name: CI
 on: [ push ]
     runs-on: ubuntu-latest

       - uses: actions/checkout@v2
       - name: Phing Build
         uses: phingofficial/[email protected]
           version: 3.0.0-alpha4
           user-properties: prop=FooBar
