PHPStan configuration

If you have not already a PHPStan configuration file phpstan.neon in your project, create a new empty file next to your composer.json file.

This PHPStan extension needs to be registered with PHPStan so that PHPStan can load it properly. The easiest way to do this is to install the phpstan/extension-installer package as follows:

composer.phar require --dev phpstan/extension-installer

If you're using composer >= 2.2.0 you have to allow the execution of composer plugins (see allow-plugins section) as follows:

  - Installing phpstan/extension-installer (1.1.0): Extracting archive
phpstan/extension-installer contains a Composer plugin which is currently not in your allow-plugins config. See
Do you trust "phpstan/extension-installer" to execute code and wish to enable it now? (writes "allow-plugins" to composer.json) [y,n,d,?] y
Manual installation

If you don't want to use phpstan/extension-installer, include extension.neon in your project's PHPStan config:

	- vendor/bitexpert/phpstan-magento/extension.neon

If you are using phpstan-magento 0.15.0 and earlier, you need to register the custom autoloader that comes with this extension by adding vendor/bitexpert/phpstan-magento/autoload.php as a bootstrap file. If you are using phpstan-magento > 0.15.0 this step is done automatically by the extension itself.

		- vendor/bitexpert/phpstan-magento/autoload.php
