Symplify Error Formatter

Works best with anthraxx/intellij-awesome-console

  • Do you want to click the error and get right to the line in the file it's reported at?
  • Do you want to copy-paste regex escaped error to your ignoreErrors?
vendor/bin/phpstan analyse src --level max --error-format symplify

- "Call to an undefined method Symplify\\Command\\ReleaseCommand\:\:nonExistingCall\(\)"

The config also loads few return type extensions.

Return Type Extensions


With Symfony container and type as an argument, you always know the same type is returned:

use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Container;

/** @var Container $container */
// PHPStan: object ❌
// Reality: Type ✅

// same for in-controller/container-aware context


After Symfony Kernel boot, getContainer() always returns the container:

use Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Kernel;

final class AppKernel extends Kernel
    // ...

$kernel = new AppKernel('prod', false);

// PHPStan: null|ContainerInterface ❌
// Reality: ContainerInterface ✅
 // Reality: ContainerInterface ✅


Symfony Finder finds only existing files (obviously), so the getRealPath() always return string:

use Symfony\Component\Finder\Finder;

$finder = new Finder();

foreach ($finder as $fileInfo) {
    // PHPStan: false|string ❌
    // Reality: string ✅
