Trusted by great developers and companies

I've been a user of Anystack for a couple of months now and I have to say that it does everything that I want, and it does it all well.

We sell a Laravel package that makes it easy for developers to build flexible filter systems. I originally hand-rolled a distribution system for Composer that worked ok, but was a huge pain and lacked a lot of the features that Anystack has by default. Anystack's licensing system is well thought through and robust. It makes it easy for me to add people to special licensing schemes easily (early access, etc), and it syncs to the Composer distribution without any effort on my part. It also handles time-based, or major-release-based expiration, which is perfect for us.

Creating a new release is simple too, all you do is tag it on GitHub. That's it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The best part though is that Anystack can handle payment for you if you want. It's like a hosted Stripe Checkout for selling your code. As a developer, I can focus on writing my software and not have to worry about writing software to sell my software.

As the founder, I might be a bit biased, but I built Anystack to focus on creating amazing products instead of worrying about the complexities of billing systems, releases, updates, and more. I still use it daily to sell and distribute my products.

I’m using Anystack to sell my PHP-packages for Filament PHP via Composer. Self-hosting a private Composer server is notoriously difficult, but Anystack made this a breeze. Anystack provides me with peace of mind that billing and licensing is in good hands. Recommended!

Frequently asked questions

What is Composer?
PHP Composer is a package manager for the PHP programming language. It allows users to manage the dependencies (or external libraries) that their PHP projects depend on, and automatically installs and updates them as needed. Composer helps users avoid the hassle of manually managing and installing dependencies, which can save time and reduce the potential for errors. It is widely used in the PHP community and is a key tool for many PHP developers.
Which versions of Composer does Anystack support?
Anystack supports Composer v1 and v2. Composer v1 is officially deprecated, so we do recommend using Composer v2.
Can I distribute my code to users without Composer?
Yes, Anystack provides a hosted download page for your software where your users can download the zip archive of your code. You can also use the API to retrieve the download link.
What is is the domain name we use to host your private repositories. This allows for easy and user-friendly repository URLs.
