This Programming Thing:
Creating Your Own Standard in PHPCS
May 12, 2015 @ 08:55:30

On the This Programming Thing blog there's a recent post showing you how to define your own "sniff" settings for the popular PHP_CodeSniffer tool. The codesniffer lets you define standards that need to be in place for all code in your application and notifies you of violations.

At Zimco, we've started working on standardizing our coding but we ran into a little problem while we tried to automate the process of making sure our code adhered to that standard. [...] I think we get into our own way of doing things and everything else is wrong. This code makes me feel irrationally angry (so angry I'm having a hard time not fixing itů). Ultimately, the best way to fix these kinds of formatting problems is to sit down and discuss what's best and have everyone stick to the same set of standards.

They talk some about the place for PSR in coding standards (specifically PSR-2) and the fact that there's already "sniffs" provided to check against those rules. However, they point out that running this against a non-PSR-2 codebase can be a mess and show you how to customize your own standard to more match your current state. They use an XML configuration file to update the tab width setting to four spaces and then apply the PSR-2 standards. They also show how to exclude certain rules and mention a handy plugin you can use in Sublime Text to keep your code within standards.

Mike Lively's Blog:
Improved PHPUnit Filters
February 03, 2009 @ 09:32:26

In a recent post to his blog Mike Lively looks at some improvements that he's worked up for the popular PHP unit testing software - PHPUnit - in regards to its filters.

I have finally gotten some time to do some long awaited work on PHPUnit. The first on my agenda was a small improvement to filtering. This was related to ticket #526. Essentially I added the ability to do both white list and black list filtering.

Besides the Include methods you can add to the data set's filtering, you can also add in Exclude filters to remove the data you don't want in the set. They can also be combined to customize your data set to your heart's content.
