MinusX

MinusX is a utility that finds files that shouldn't have a UNIX executable mode.

Files that are marked as executable must either have a MIME type of application/x-executable or application/x-sharedlib, or start with a shebang.

It can be installed via composer:

composer require mediawiki/minus-x --dev

Usage:

minus-x check .

And to automatically fix errors:

minus-x fix .

If you need to whitelist a specific file, create a .minus-x.json in the repository root:

{ 
    "ignore": [ "./bin/executable" ]
}
