Installation & Configuration

Once installed, put this into your phpstan.neon config:

    - vendor/friendsoftypo3/phpstan-typo3/extension.neon


I found this extension and the one from Sascha (saschaegerer/phpstan-typo3). Why are there two extensions and which should I use?

Well, this package has one specific purpose. It's made to help making the TYPO3 core phpstan max level compatible. To achieve this, the core team needs to be able to have its own extension which can be quickly adjusted as soon as the core itself changes. If for example, a new core version is released, the core team can quickly raise the dependency constraints for typo3/cms-core and typo3/cms-extbase which cannot be done when working with Sascha's package.

Also, Sascha's package contains dynamic return type providers that are not needed (yet) to make the core more compatible with phpstan.

To sum it all up: There is no competition between both extensions and this extension should not be used by users but only by the TYPO3 core.
