Tools are in ./tools rather than ./vendor/bin
You also need git cliff for generating changelogs and pcov to generate coverage stats for infection to measure against.
The useful ones are set up as composer scripts.

composer test # run pest
composer stan # run phpstan on src
composer rector:check # rector dry run on src
composer rector:fix # rector on src
composer cs:check # php cs fixer dry run on src
composer cs:fix # php cs fixer on src
composer phar:build # build phar with box (experimental, some features don't work yet)
composer changelog # run git cliff
composer hooks # install git hooks (will run on composer install automatically)
composer bump:version # bump to the next patch version - can also take argument "minor" or "major"
composer infection # run infection on src
composer infection:log # run infection on src and log to infection.html
