re: How to make an open-source library ? VIEW POST


Sort of a broad question but let's tackle at least a few issues.

In case of PHP:

Start a project using composer

mkdir myproject
cd myproject
composer init
// answer questions

In case of license, figure out what suits your project best. Check licenses.

Write code. A lot depends on your use case. What do you want to build? An application? A library? Add dependencies accordingly with Composer. Have good test coverage if you want your code to be reliable.

Tag releases accordingly using your version control system. Use semantic versioning

Publish in Github and packagist
