Can't get a monolitic code base up to scratch but would like incremental progress. PHPCS for legacy allows new standards to be implemented incrementally, by only enforcing them on new / edited code via checking the git diff output.


With composer simply composer require -dev rlweb/phpcs-for-legacy.


By running you initate the binary vendor/bin/phpcslegacy run

How it works

  • Firstly gets a output of git diff head
  • Transforms the patch output into a useful array of [filePath => [1,2,3,...] to changed lines. For each changed line, we include the previous and the next line.
  • Then it will run the PHPCS command against these files
  • And then create a diff of the issues on the lines.

And output these only!
