TYPO3 Flavored Live Templates for PHPStorm IDE


We ignore everything in the repo except for the files we care about (see .gitignore). That way you can install rando unrelated templates if you need to, and they won't be tracked here. The major downside to this is that you will not be able to track your other live templates in a git repo. If you need to do that, you're better off forking to your own repo, and keeping this one as an upstream.

Getting Started

  • cd ~/Library/Preferences/WebIde60/templates
  • Now initialize the a repo: git init
  • Add the remote repo: git remote add origin
  • Pull everything down: git pull origin master
