Flattr this git repo

Every big project has its own coding standards for syntax and formatting (Coding Guidelines / CGL). For example Zend Framework, PEAR, Drupal, Symfony2 and so on. TYPO3 CMS and TYPO3 Flow / Neos as well.

With the PHP_CodeSniffer it is possible to detect violations from a defined set of rules (called sniffs) for PHP, JavaScript and CSS files.

This repository contains self developed sniffs based on the PHP_CodeSniffer for the TYPO3 Project to check for the coding guidelines and detect violation. We call this repository the TYPO3 Sniff Pool, because it contains all sniffs we use in the separate coding standards like TYPO3Flow and TYPO3CMS.

How to install

Since this standard is a dependency of TYPO3CMS and TYPO3Flow standard, you don't need to install this standard directly. It will automatically installed when you install one of the mentioned standards.

How to use

Since it is an own standard it is possible to call it.

This is not recommended! It will raise weird errors.

We provide and suggest to use the separate standards who match the coding guidelines of TYPO3CMS and TYPO3Flow.
