This package introduces a simple bash script that lints multiple PHP files at once.


This tool should be compatible with any PHP Cli that provides lint check.


Simply provide a list of files and/or folders for the tool to validate.

$ bin/lint-php test/valid/foo.php test/valid/bar.php
PHP Lint, by Valdir Bruxel Junior and contributors

... 2/2

Validation finished (2 files, 2 valid, 0 errors, 0 skipped)

If you provide a folder, it will recursevilly lint all php files in that folder.

$ bin/lint-php test/valid
PHP Lint, by Valdir Bruxel Junior and contributors

.......... 3/3

Validation finished (10 files, 10 valid, 0 errors, 0 skipped)

If it encounters any errors, it will validate all files and output the errors it encountered in the end of the execution run.

$ bin/lint-php test/valid test/errors
PHP Lint, by Valdir Bruxel Junior and contributors
