The League of Extraordinary Packages is a group of developers who have banded together to build solid, well tested PHP packages using modern coding standards. They comply to the standards of the PHP-FIG. They adhere to the best-practices put forward by PHP The “Right” Way. They distribute code via Packagist and Composer.
Ask 100 developers what defines an awesome PHP package and you’ll get a lot of different answers. That also sounds like a really long and boring task, so they have come up with a list of rules that we think make a package awesome.
