README

Check & fix styling

My own personal preferences for php-cs-fixer configuration. This is largely based on legibility and being able to understand the code quickly when reading it and places no emphasis on being compact, minimalistic or anything like that.

I believe in the old adage that "code is read far more than it is written", so this configuration is themed around that.

This project is also intentionally "light" and not tied to any framework or other third party package(s). The only required dependency for this project is php-cs-fixer, and this will likely continue to be true also in the future. For this reason, there is no ServiceProvider that integrates the package with Laravel or anything like that, even though I could consider releasing a separate package that provides a "Laravel wrapper" around this package at some point for simplicity's sake.

Installation and Usage

Install the project via composer as per usual:

composer require --dev brekitomasson/php-cs-fixer-breki-config

Once installed into your project, the RuleSet can be used by php-cs-fixer by generating your own .php-cs-fixer file with contents similar to the following:

<?php

use BrekiTomasson\PhpCsFixer\Config\Exceptions\InvalidPhpVersion;
use BrekiTomasson\PhpCsFixer\Config\Factory;
use BrekiTomasson\PhpCsFixer\Config\RuleSet\Php8;

$ruleSet = new Php8();

try {
    $configuration = Factory::fromRuleSet($ruleSet);
    $configuration->getFinder()->in(__DIR__ . '/' . 'src');
    $configuration->setCacheFile(__DIR__ . '/.build/php-cs-fixer/php-cs-fixer.cache');

    return $configuration;
} catch (InvalidPhpVersion $exception) {
    echo 'Failed to generate php-cs-fixer configuration: ' . $exception->getMessage() . PHP_EOL;
}

Future Plans and Ambitions

While I think php-cs-fixer is the best tool in the category, there are a couple of other tools out there that also perform various important functions when it comes to code analysis, linting and the long-term health of PHP projects. I may be adding more features to this project as time goes on so that it can be used for more than just my php-cs-fixer configuration, although it probably makes sense to handle those configurations in separate packages and have another package that ties them together somehow.

Also:

  • Add tests and coverage
  • Look into ways of breaking the ruleset down into chunks for more personalization options.

Thanks, Acknowledgements and Credit

First, a massive thanks to Fabien Potencier and Dariusz Rumiński for making php-cs-fixer, as well as to the PHP community at large for all your contributions to this project over the years. I've been a fan of the php-cs-fixer project from a distance for a long time and tinkered with configurations and various ways of integrating it in my own workflow more than I have with any other PHP package. It's to the point where php-cs-fixer is among the first handful of packages that I install, no matter what PHP project I'm working on.

I also want to thank a couple of other developers out there who have made their own php-cs-fixer config packages, as these were very useful to me to read for inspiration of how to structure the code and organize things. This includes:
