Set up PHP-CS-Fixer in PHPStorm

Use PHP-CS-Fixer in PHPStorm

  • Install PHP-CS-Fixer on your local machine according to these instructions:
  • Open PHPStorm, Preferences > Tools > External Tools and enter these values: img
  • Program, edit to match your path where PHP-CS-Fixer lives: /.composer/vendor/friendsofphp/php-cs-fixer/php-cs-fixer
  • Parameters: --rules=@PSR2 --verbose fix $FileDir$/$FileName$. Note that previous verions of PHP-CS-Fixer used --levels instead of --rules.
  • Working directory: $ProjectFileDir$

Click OK and Apply. Now we'll set up a shortcut.

  • Go to Preferences > Keymap and search for "PHP Fixer" (or whatever name you gave it). Add whatever shortcut you like, I'm using ctrl + cmd + ]: img

You should be ready to go. Open a file that's not up to standards and run your shortcut, and it should be fixed once you Save the file. It will only run on Save, otherwise every keystroke will be checked.

sorry, I don't find it. Could you tell me where is it? thanks

For me, fix $FilePath$ works better than fix $FileDir$/$FileName$. The former works against both a file and a folder, and the latter only works on a single file but not a folder.
