Downloading and Usage
You can download Pharen from Github. If you have Git installed, you can also run:
$ git clone git://github.com/Scriptor/pharen.git
After downloading Pharen,
cd into its directory and run:
$ sudo ./install.sh
For now there is only an install script for Unix systems.
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.
