README

A Psalm plugin that use property type to fix param in the setter

Installation:

$ composer require --dev orklah/psalm-type-setters-param
$ vendor/bin/psalm-plugin enable orklah/psalm-type-setters-param

Usage:

To automatically fix code, run:

$ vendor/bin/psalm --alter --plugin=vendor\orklah\psalm-type-setters-param\src\Plugin.php

Explanation:

When a property has a type, we can deduce that any setter should not take a type that is wider than the property. When this plugin detect such a case, it adds the type to the param.

Warning: if the class of the setter does not have a strict_type declaration and the file that call the setter does, this plugin may create a TypeError if there was an implicit cast. Please use orklah\psalm-strict-types to avoid such cases. (If someone is interested, it may be possible to check that specific case and prevent the replacement, please create an issue)
