This repository contains tools for enforcing a personal PHP coding style standard and a specific project organization structure.

It's highly opinionated. You've been warned. No crybabies please.


This project is divided into three parts:

  • Chroma: A coding standard for PHP Code Sniffer. Ironically, its not currently possible to enforce the standard rules into itself because the PHP Code Sniffer expects a very specific style. However, the standard is enforced on every other part of the library.
  • phpstd CLI tool: phpstd is a small CLI application with commands for linting, cleaning, validating, and setting up new projects.
  • phpmd.xml: A phpmd.xml file is bundled for additional checks.

Style Guide



Pull requests are accepted on GitHub. Bug fixes and small improvements are welcome. However, big style changes will be carefully review. Many code style decisions are purely personal (snake_case vs camelCase).


If you discover any security related issues, please email instead of using the issue tracker.
