Downloading and Usage
You can download the ZIP file from Github. If you have Git installed, you can also run:
$ git clone git://github.com/Scriptor/pharen.git
After downloading and if needed, extracting, Pharen,
cd into its directory and run:
On Unix systems:
$ sudo ./install.sh
To use the compiler:
$ pharen your_file.phn
This will compile the contents of your_file.phn to your_file.php. Note that
php should point to
wherever the php executable is located if it’s not in your environment path. Also, .phn is the convention
for a Pharen file extension, although you can use your own.
Adding more file names causes each file to be compiled in order:
$ pharen your_file.phn file2.phn file3.phn fileN.phn
Each file is then compiled to the equivalent PHP file, so your_file.php, file2.php, etc. The order in which you specify the files is only important when using partials and macros since the compiler stores information related to those in memory. If you’re not doing either, then you don’t have to worry about the order.
