Itineris WP Coding Standards is a project with rulesets for code style and quality tools to be used in Itineris WordPress projects.

It is a mix of PSR-1, PSR-2, PSR-4, PSR-12, Slevomat and WordPress coding standards.

Whenever there's a conflict between PSR and WPCS, always prefer PSR.

Currently, it works for WordPress plugins. Using it on Bedrock or Sage requires some tweaking.


composer require --dev itinerisltd/itineris-wp-coding-standards


First, create phpcs.xml on project root:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<ruleset name="Plugin">
    <!-- Check all files under project root -->

    <!-- Show colors in console -->
    <arg value="-colors"/>

    <!-- Show progress and sniff codes in all reports; Show progress of the run -->
    <arg value="sp"/>

    <!-- Scan only PHP files -->
    <arg name="extensions" value="php"/>

    <!-- Use Itineris WP Coding Standards -->
    <rule ref="Itineris"/>

    <!-- TODO: Change everything below! -->
    <!-- TODO: Exclude specific rules if necessary -->

    <!-- TODO: Exclude some files -->

    <!-- TODO: Define minimum supported WordPress version -->
    <config name="minimum_supported_wp_version" value="6.2"/>

    <!-- TODO: Define expected text domains -->
    <rule ref="WordPress.WP.I18n">
            <property name="text_domain" type="array">
                <element value="my-plugin"/>
                <element value="my-theme"/>
                <element value="woocommerce"/>
                <element value="sage"/>

Then, define composer scripts in composer.json:

  "scripts": {
    "style:check": "phpcs",
    "style:fix": "phpcbf"

Run the commands:

composer style:check
composer style:fix
