Idephix is a PHP automation tool useful to perform remote and local tasks. It can be used to deploy applications, rotate logs, synchronize data repository across server or create a build system. The choice is up to you. Idephix is still in alpha, so things will change. You can report issues and submit PRs (greatly appreciated :-)) on the github repo

        $idx->output->writeln("Download file.log");
        $idx->sshClient->get("/remote/dir/file.log", "/tmp/local.log");
