Detect parts of your code that should be updated to be PHP7 compatible

This project is now deprecated in favor of php7cc.

php7-checker is a PHP library that parses your code and statically detects some errors that could prevent it to run on PHP7.

Disclamer: this tool is a static analyzer. As it doesn't run your code it's far from being 100% reliable. If you need to ensure that some code will run on PHP 7, nothing will do a better job than a complete test suite run on the targeted version of PHP. If you want to test it locally (f.e. because your code is not open source), you can still have a look to JoliCi.


Globally (Composer)

To install php7-checker, install Composer and issue the following command:

./composer.phar global require jolicode/php7-checker

Then, make sure you have ~/.composer/vendor/bin in your PATH, and you're good to go:

export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"


You can run the checker on a given file or directory:

php7-checker /path/to/dir
php7-checker /path/to/file
