Repository with all coding standard ruleset.


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 are dangerous. Starting from version 0.3.1 we removed them from default configuration.

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]

      --no-dev                   Do not include autoload-dev directories
      --no-risky                 Do not include risky rules

Migrating to 0.3

Updating the plugin from v0.2 to v0.3 will not automatically update your configuration. Since your previous configuration should be committed into your Git repository, we suggest to temporarily delete it and just run the update, asking the plugin to create a new one; this way, you can use the diff afterwards to merge your personal modifications onto the new configuration format.

v0.3 default configuration


 * Additional rules or rules to override.
 * These rules will be added to default rules or will override them if the same key already exists.
$additionalRules = [];

$rulesProvider = new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\CompositeRulesProvider([
    new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\DefaultRulesProvider(),
    // new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\RiskyRulesProvider(), // risky rules
    new Facile\CodingStandards\Rules\ArrayRulesProvider($additionalRules),

$config = PhpCsFixer\Config::create();

$finder = PhpCsFixer\Finder::create();
$autoloadPathProvider = new Facile\CodingStandards\AutoloadPathProvider();


return $config;
