This repo contains some utilities that can be used when developing Phan plugins. This code was originally written as part of MediaWiki's taint-check.


$ `composer require mediawiki/phan-utils`


Add use MediaWikiPhanUtils\MediaWikiPhanUtils to the visitor class. Note that the implementing class MUST have the following properties:

 * @property \Phan\Language\Context $context
 * @property \Phan\CodeBase $code_base

Additionally, the class SHOULD implement the following method:

protected function getLogChannel() : string

to specify the name of the channel used in debug logs.

Environment variables

You can use the PHAN_DEBUG variable to print debug information. The variable can take the name of a file (if running from shell, /dev/stderr is convenient), or - for stdout.
