Laravel PHP CS Fixer

The PHP CS Fixer is maintained on GitHub at bug reports and ideas about new features are welcome there.

The PHP Coding Standards Fixer (PHP CS Fixer) tool fixes your code to follow standards; whether you want to follow PHP coding standards as defined in the PSR-1, PSR-2, etc., or other community driven ones like the Symfony one. You can also define your (teams) style through configuration.

This package makes it easier than ever to use PHP CS Fixer to maintain your laravel code by providing access to it via tools that you are already familiar with. An artisan command to fix the code, and manage the configuration the way you do all the other laravel packages you use.

Features of this package

  • Run PHP-CS-Fixer commands via Laravel Artisan CLI.
  • Laravel Code Style Configuration Used by Default.
  • No need to learn a new tool.
