No experience with PHING here. I will read up on it.

Does anyone have any experience with PHING? http://www.phing.info/

PHING is very much like Ant, only written in PHP. So it lets you define
tasks that you need to perform on a regular (or not-so-regular) basis.

We had a presentation[1] about it at our local PHP user group recently and
it made me wonder if we shouldn't use it to automate our tasks like running
the unit tests, packing up the nightly tarball, or preparing the release
packages. All of these tasks are already automated in our Jenkins, but
implemented with some of my infamous Bash scripts, which aren't exactly easy
to understand and maintain.

I've only played around with PHING but managed to whip up a short and
readable package job. I guess what I'm looking for right now are best
practices and experiences - dos and don'ts and the like. Anyone?

bye, Dirk
