Code Climate PHP Mess Detector (PHPMD) Engine

Code Climate

codeclimate-phpmd is a Code Climate Engine that wraps the PHP Mess Detector (PHPMD) static analysis tool.


  1. If you haven't already, install the Code Climate CLI.
  2. Run codeclimate engines:enable phpmd. This command both installs the engine and enables it in your .codeclimate.yml file.
  3. You're ready to analyze! Browse into your project's folder and run codeclimate analyze.

Config Options

Format the values for these config options per the PHPMD documentation.

  • file_extensions - This is where you can configure the file extensions for the files that you want PHPMD to analyze.
  • rulesets - This is the list of rulesets that you want PHPMD to use while analyzing your files.

Sample Config

 - "/examples/**/*"
    enabled: true
      file_extensions: "php"
      rulesets: "unusedcode,codesize,naming,optional_relative_path_to_custom_ruleset.xml"
  - "**.php"
