Flitch - PHP coding standard validator ====================================== About ----- Flitch is a coding standard validator for PHP, meant as a replacement for PHPCS. It is partly based on PHPca <https://github.com/spriebsch/phpca> by Stefan Priebsch, but should not be confused with a fork of it. Flitch will scan through your source files and detect coding standard violations. Currently it ships with PSR-1 and PSR-2 as core standards, but can be extended by custom standards. Why replace PHPCS? ------------------ Since this question came up a few times already, here is a list of reasons: - PHPCS is known to be a memory hog. - It is not trivial to write complex rules for PHPCS. - It is complicated to write unit tests for rules. - Flitch is written completly modular, so it can be reused in other applications. - Last but not least, competition is a good thing. Adding custom standards ----------------------- Custom standards should be located in the directory .flitch/standards in your home directory. Installation ------------ To install Flitch, simply clone it with git. Additionally you can symlink the "flitch" executable to a directory in your PATH. Using Flitch ------------ For command line options, run flitch --help
