WordPress stubs and plugin for Psalm.
Write type-safe WordPress code.
This Psalm plugin provides all WordPress and WP CLI stubs, so your WordPress based project or plugin will have type information for calls to WordPress APIs. This ensures your WordPress plugin or theme has less bugs!
- Stubs for all of WordPress Core
- Stubs for WP CLI
- Types for
- Types for
- Configuration options to use your own stubs
Please refer to the full Psalm documentation for a more detailed guide on introducing Psalm into your project.
After Psalm is installed, install this package and enable the plugin:
composer require --dev humanmade/psalm-plugin-wordpress ./vendor/bin/psalm-plugin enable humanmade/psalm-plugin-wordpress
If you follow the installation instructions, the
psalm-plugin command will add this plugin configuration to the
psalm.xml configuration file.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <psalm xmlns="https://getpsalm.org/schema/config"> <!-- project configuration --> <plugins> <pluginClass class="PsalmWordPress\Plugin" /> </plugins> </psalm>
Further details about plugins can be found on Psalm's website.
If you do not want to use the default WordPress class/method/function stubs, which are part of this plugin,
useDefaultStubs must be set to
<pluginClass class="PsalmWordPress\Plugin"> <useDefaultStubs value="false" /> </pluginClass>
If you do not want to use the default WordPress hooks, which are part of this plugin,
useDefaultHooks must be set to
<pluginClass class="PsalmWordPress\Plugin"> <useDefaultHooks value="false" /> </pluginClass>
You can also provide custom hooks:
<pluginClass class="PsalmWordPress\Plugin"> <hooks> <directory name="some/dir/hooks" recursive="true" /> <directory name="/absolute/other/dir/hooks" /> <file name="my-special-hooks/actions.json" /> </hooks> </pluginClass>
If a directory is provided, the plugin will search for the following files:
The plugin expects a JSON representation of the hooks as per wp-hooks/generator.
To help Psalm analyze your project you might need to define some of WordPress' default global constants such as those for paths.
<?xml version="1.0"?> <psalm autoloader="tests/bootstrap.php" xmlns="https://getpsalm.org/schema/config"> <!-- project configuration --> </psalm>
The following example bootstrap file is for a Bedrock installation:
<?php require_once dirname( __DIR__ ) . '/config/application.php'; define( 'WPMU_PLUGIN_DIR', WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/mu-plugins' ); define( 'WP_PLUGIN_DIR', WP_CONTENT_DIR . '/plugins' );
You could require WordPress' default constants functions but that requires a lot more boilerplating to allow those functions to effectively define constants.
Feel free to open a PR to fix bugs or add features!
