PHP_CodeSniffer Standards Composer Installer Plugin
This composer installer plugin allows for easy installation of PHP_CodeSniffer coding standards (rulesets).
No more symbolic linking of directories, checking out repositories on specific locations or changing
Note: This plugin is compatible with both version 2.x and 3.x of PHP_CodeSniffer
Installation can be done with Composer, by requiring this package as a development dependency:
How it works
Basically, this plugin executes the following steps:
- This plugin searches for
phpcodesniffer-standardpackages in all of your currently installed Composer packages.
- Matching packages and the project itself are scanned for PHP_CodeSniffer rulesets.
- The plugin will call PHP_CodeSniffer and configure the
The following is an example Composer project and has included
composer install PHP_CodeSniffer just works:
Calling the plugin directly
In some circumstances, it is desirable to call this plugin's functionality directly. For instance, during development or in CI environments.
As the plugin requires Composer to work, direct calls need to be wired through a
This is done by adding a call to the
Plugin::run function in the
section of the
The command can then be called using
composer run-script install-codestandards or
referenced from other script configurations, as follows:
For more details about Composer scripts, please refer to the section on scripts in the Composer manual.
Changing the Coding Standards search depth
By default, this plugin searches up for Coding Standards up to three directories deep. In most cases, this should be sufficient. However, this plugin allows you to customize the search depth setting if needed.
When this plugin is installed globally, composer will load the global plugin rather than the one from the local repository. Despite this behavior being documented in the composer manual, it could potentially confuse as another version of the plugin could be run and not the one specified by the project.
Developing Coding Standards
Create a composer package of your coding standard by adding a
- The repository may contain one or more standards.
- Each standard can have a separate directory no deeper than 3 levels from the repository root.
- The package
phpcodesniffer-standard. Without this, the plugin will not trigger.
Requiring the plugin from within your coding standard
If your coding standard itself depends on additional external PHPCS standards, this plugin can make life easier on your end-users by taking care of the installation of all standards - yours and your dependencies - for them.
This can help reduce the number of support questions about setting the
installed_paths, as well
as simplify your standard's installation instructions.
For this to work, make sure your external standard adds this plugin to the
:warning: Your end-user may already
require-devthis plugin and/or other external standards used by your end-users may require this plugin as well.
To prevent your end-users getting into "dependency hell", make sure to make the version requirement for this plugin flexible.
As, for now, this plugin is still regarded as "unstable" (version < 1.0), remember that Composer treats unstable minors as majors and will not be able to resolve one config requiring this plugin at version
^0.5, while another requires it at version
^0.6. Either allow multiple minors or use
*as the version requirement.
Some examples of flexible requirements which can be used:
