Use PHP config syntax to configure PHPStan in phpstan.php



Use PHP config syntax to configure PHPStan in phpstan.php

Have you switched from YAML to PHP configs in Rector, ECS and Symfony projects? Do you still need 10 reasons why?

In case you have, the phpstan.neon is probably the last one YAML-like config in your setup. Class renames are missed, so is autocomplete and prone to errors, since PHP-syntax is highly addictive.

This package introduces phpstan.php syntax, so you can configure PHPStan in PHP.


composer require symplify/phpstan-php-config --dev


Create phpstan.php and configure it, as any other Symfony project with PHP config:

use Symfony\Component\DependencyInjection\Loader\Configurator\ContainerConfigurator;
use Symplify\PHPStanPHPConfig\ValueObject\Level;
use Symplify\PHPStanPHPConfig\ValueObject\Option;

return static function (ContainerConfigurator $containerConfigurator): void {
    $parameters = $containerConfigurator->parameters();

    $parameters->set(Option::LEVEL, Level::LEVEL_MAX);

    $parameters->set(Option::PATHS, [__DIR__ . '/packages']);

    $parameters->set(Option::PARALLEL_MAX_PROCESSES, 6);
    $parameters->set(Option::REPORT_UNMATCHED_IGNORED_ERRORS, false);

Then, add or extend "phpstan" scripts in your composer.json:

    "scripts": {
        "phpstan": [
            "vendor/bin/phpstan-php-config convert phpstan.php --output-file phpstan-converted.neon",
            "vendor/bin/phpstan analyse --ansi --config phpstan-converter.neon"

Then run PHPStan as usual:

composer phpstan

If everything works well, you can drop the custom config path and phpstan.neon will be generated instead:

    "scripts": {
        "phpstan": [
            "vendor/bin/phpstan-php-config convert phpstan.php",
            "vendor/bin/phpstan analyse --ansi"
