✨ Getting Started In 3 Steps


1: First, you may use Composer to install Larastan as a development dependency into your Laravel project:

composer require --dev nunomaduro/larastan

Using Larastan for analysing Laravel packages? You may need to install orchestra/testbench.

2: Then, create a phpstan.neon or phpstan.neon.dist file in the root of your application. It might look like this:

    - ./vendor/nunomaduro/larastan/extension.neon


        - app

    # The level 8 is the highest level
    level: 5

        - '#Unsafe usage of new static#'

        - ./*/*/FileToBeExcluded.php

    checkMissingIterableValueType: false

For all available options, please take a look at the PHPStan documentation:

3: Finally, you may start analyzing your code using the phpstan console command:

./vendor/bin/phpstan analyse
