Run all code formatting tools with one command: pretty
A single CLI command with sane defaults to simplify CodeSniffer and PHP-CS-Fixer.
PHP CodeSniffer and PHP-CS-Fixer are powerful but using them is not simple. It is not always obvious which tool a project uses and whether there is a configuration file to use or whether you need to provide options to the CLI command.
Now it's easy, simply run:
Pretty will detect the configuration file that exist in the current directory and will run the correct tool. If no configuration file exist, Pretty will run PHP CodeSniffer with PSR-2 by default.
If errors are found, simply run:
Again, Pretty will run the appropriate tool (
phpcbf) to fix as many errors as possible in your code.
If you have already set up a global install of Composer just run:
composer global require mnapoli/pretty
Pretty comes with no dependencies so it should not bring any conflict in Composer.
You can also install it as a local dependency of your project with
composer require --dev mnapoli/pretty. In that case you can start the tool with
You will be able to update to new versions by running:
composer global update mnapoli/pretty
Running an analysis is as simple as running:
This command will not change any code. To fix errors reported by this command, simply run:
In case you are running the analyses in CI you might want to run:
This will disable the caching option of PHP-CS-Fixer or CodeSniffer (because the cache will not be kept in CI).
