You will need to configure this plugin to work for your setup, please view the options here


What do I do when I get "OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error"?

  • This seems to be an issue you may get with regards to wrapper scripts.
  • Please make sure that the application/script you are referencing has the correct shebang line, as per GH-79

What do I do when I get "OSError: [Error 2] No such file or directory"?

  • Well, first of all you need to check that you have PHP_CodeSniffer, and if being used, the phpmd application.
  • If you have these applications installed, then it sounds like those applications are not in your PATH, or cannot be found in your PATH by the Python runtime, so configure "phpcs_php_path", "phpcs_executable_path", "phpmd_executable_path" and "php_cs_fixer_executable_path" with the actual paths to those applications

What do I do when I get "OSError: [Errno 13] Permission denied"?

  • It sounds like your path settings are incorrect.
  • You need to make sure that when you specifiy the path you include the entire path including the application
$ which phpcs
  • That entire output is the path you need in your configs.

What if I've installed the applications using Homebrew?

If you have installed php-cs-fixer, phpmd or phpcs via homebrew then please make sure that you define the "*_executable_path" option to the .phar application and not the wrapper script that is placed in your bin folder, as this will cause odd behaviour.

What other Key Bindings can I setup?

The following is a list of commands that you can bind to a keyboard shortcut:

  • phpcs_fix_this_file
  • phpcs_clear_sniffer_marks
  • phpcs_goto_next_error
  • phpcs_show_previous_errors
  • phpcs_sniff_this_file

In order to achieve this you need to add the following to one of your key bindings settings file:

{ "keys": ["ctrl+super+t"], "command": "phpcs_clear_sniffer_marks" }

To decide which "Fixer" to use, you can do:

{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+f"], "command": "phpcs_fix_this_file", "args": {"tool": "CodeBeautifier"}},


{ "keys": ["super+k", "super+f"], "command": "phpcs_fix_this_file", "args": {"tool": "Fixer"}},

You can then change the ctrl+super+t combination to something of your choosing.
