This repository includes Coding Standard definitions for PHP CodeSniffer 2.x for use with Composer.

Currently, these Coding Standards are included:



Add this package to your requirements.

$ composer require --dev greencape/coding-standards:~1

The PHP CodeSniffer tool is installed automatically in a matching version.

You can verify a successful install with

$ ./vendor/bin/phpcs -i
The installed coding standards are MySource, PSR2, Squiz, Zend, PHPCS, PSR1, PEAR, WordPress and Joomla


You can use the installed Joomla standard like:

$ ./vendor/bin/phpcs --standard=Joomla path/to/code
$ ./vendor/bin/phpcbf --standard=Joomla path/to/code

You can use the installed WordPress standard like:

$ ./vendor/bin/phpcs --standard=WordPress path/to/code
$ ./vendor/bin/phpcbf --standard=WordPress path/to/code

In both cases, the second (phpcbf) line will fix some issues automatically. However, this part is work in progress, and will improve over time.
