Repository with PHP coding standard ruleset, based on PHP-CS-Fixer.


Currently, Composer is the only supported installation tool.

$ composer require --dev facile-it/facile-coding-standard

When you install it, a plugin will ask you some questions to setup your project automatically.

The installer will add a .php-cs-fixer.dist.php file in your project root directory, then you can edit manually if you need some changes.

The CS config will be configured to find your project files using composer autoload sources.

Only psr-0, psr-4 and classmap autoloads are supported.

The installer will also add two scripts in your composer.json;

"scripts": {
  "cs-check": "php-cs-fixer fix --dry-run --diff",
  "cs-fix": "php-cs-fixer fix --diff"


The installation configuration should be enough to use it.

If you need to change the CS config file, we suggest to don't edit the main .php-cs-fixer.dist.php file.

You can create a new file .php-cs-fixer.php with something like this:


/** @var PhpCsFixer\Config $config */
$config = require __DIR__ . '/.php-cs-fixer.dist.php';

// change your configuration...

return $config;


To start code style check:

$ composer cs-check

To automatically fix code style:

$ composer cs-fix

PhpCsFixer configuration

See PhpCsFixer GitHub page.

Risky rules

Risky rules may be unstable, and cause unintended behavioral changes to your code. If you want to add these rules, you can create your own .php-cs-fixer.php configuration:


/** @var \PhpCsFixer\Config $config */
$config = include __DIR__ . '/.php-cs-fixer.dist.php';

$rulesProvider = new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\CompositeRulesProvider([
    new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\DefaultRulesProvider(),
    new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\RiskyRulesProvider(),
    new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\ArrayRulesProvider([
        // additional rules or rules to override


return $config;

Generate configuration

If you have any problem updating to a new version, you can regenerate the default .php-cs-fixer.dist.php with the command:

$ composer facile-cs-create-config
$ composer facile-cs-create-config --help

  facile-cs-create-config [options]
