Try to resolve problem
Is it possible arc client bin released as a phar package?
if we can release a pre-built phar file, it will be more easier to deploy on each team members pc.
For example. the phpunit.phar and the composer.phar very easy to obtain. and easy to running .
We can gain these benefit from the new phar package.
- Easy to download, just one phar package
- Easy to deploy. just copy it to each members pc
- Easy to use, just run
- Easy to update, Just download new phar file and replace it
- Not required to install git ..
