This project offers a set of preconfigured rules for PHP Code Sniffer mainly related to new PHP features that are not covered by Drupal coding standards yet.

System Requirements

PHP 7.3+


Install the standard locally through Composer.

composer require --dev chi-teck/drupal-coder-extension

Add "DrupalExtended" standard to your project's phpcs.xml. The actual name of the standard depends on PHP version you use. For instance, the name "DrupalExtended73" corresponds to PHP 7.3+ projects.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ruleset name="My Project">
  <rule ref="vendor/chi-teck/drupal-coder-extension/DrupalExtended73">
    <!-- Sniffs to exclude. -->

A complete example of phpcs configuration for Drupal 8+ sites powered by PHP 7.4+.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ruleset name="My Project">
  <description>PHP Code Sniffer configuration for My Project.</description>
  <arg name="colors"/>
  <arg name="extensions" value="php,module,inc,install,theme,info,txt,md,yml"/>
  <!-- Exclude vendors. -->
  <rule ref="vendor/drupal/coder/coder_sniffer/Drupal">
    <!-- Exclude in favor of native typehints. -->
    <exclude name="Drupal.Commenting.VariableComment.MissingVar"/>
  <rule ref="vendor/drupal/coder/coder_sniffer/DrupalPractice"/>
  <rule ref="vendor/chi-teck/drupal-coder-extension/DrupalExtended74"/>


Run the phpcs script to check custom code.

Run the phpcbf script to automatically correct coding standard violations.
