Jordi Boggiano: PHP Versions Stats – 2016.1 Edition

Jordi Boggiano has posted some updated statistics around the use of the Packagist site around PHP version requirements and the relation of package downloads to PHP versions.

Last year I posted stats about PHP versions, and the year before as well, both time in November. However this year I can’t wait for November as I am curious to explore the PHP7 uptake!

A quick note on methodology, because all these stats are imperfect as they just sample some subset of the PHP user base. I look in the packagist.org logs of the last 28 days for Composer installs done by someone. Composer sends the PHP version it is running with in its User-Agent header, so I can use that to see which PHP versions people are using Composer with.

He compares the previous statistics against the ones gathered back in November 2015, both in numbers and graphs. He shows the stats for the PHP versions being used and for the PHP versions that are required. It’s interesting to see that there’s been a good uptick in supported versions including PHP 7.0+.

Jordi Boggiano: PHP Versions Stats – 2015 Edition

It’s come to "that time of year" again and Jordi Boggiano has posted the latest update in his series of PHP usage statistics. In this summary he looks at the PHP versions installed based on the packagist.org logs for developers using Composer.

It’s that time of the year again, where I figure it’s time to update my yearly data on PHP version usage. Last year’s post showed 5.5 as the main winner and 5.3 declining rapidly. Let’s see what 2015 brought.

[…] A quick note on methodology, because all these stats are imperfect as they just sample some subset of the PHP user base. […] Composer sends the PHP version it is running with in its User-Agent header, so I can use that to see which PHP versions people are using Composer with. Of course this data set is probably biased towards development machines and CI servers and as such it should also be taken with a grain of salt.

He first compares the statics for his 2015 searches against the 2014 stats and shows the differences in usage for PHP versions 5.3.3 up to 5.6.0. Fortunately, the results show a rise in the usage of PHP 5.5 and a decline in all others…but it’s not too much of a difference (2-3% range). Pie graphs are also included to help visualize these differences. He also includes some statistics on what PHP versions are required by certain packages for the ones listed on Packagist with increases starting with 5.4 and the largest advance for 5.5.
