PHPStorm Live Templates for Drupal 7
What ? Why ?
Lazy programmers (i.e. every programmer) like to use code snippets. The goal is to write less code and program faster. IDE's (or text editors like VIM) allow the use of such snippets to write for us commonly used functions.
The purpose of these Live Templates is to provide Drupal devs such templates for Drupal hooks. It was generated using a Perl script that basically create PHPStorm Live Templates from *.api.php files in Drupal /includes and /modules directories. The output is a bit raw, so it needs some love and polish.
How to use the script generator
You need Perl in your machine. This script was written under Debian Linux, so it may need some adaptations for others OS's.
Type these commands :
$ cd /path/to/drupal $ find . -name \*.php | xargs grep -l '^function hook_' | xargs /path/to/parse_drupal_api.pl > ~/.WebIde10/config/templates/user.xml
How to use the Live Templates
- (optional) For security's sake, back up your original user.xml file if it exists.
- Copy the user.xml file into ~/.WebIde10/config/templates
- Restart PHPStorm.
h_HOOKNAME<tab>for short version,
hook_HOOKNAME<tab>for annoted version (with core comments)
- Profit !
