PHP Quality Tools

Latest Version on Packagist Build Status Quality Score Total Downloads

This package installs the most commonly used quality tools for php: PHP Code Sniffer, PHP Mess Detector, PHP Static Analysis Tool and PHP Coding Standards Fixer. It comes with some reasonable predefined configurations and using the PSR-2 coding style. This package can be used with Laravel applications or with any php project it is not specifically a Laravel package.

The purpose of this package is to allow php developers to quickly install and configure all the necessary quality tools for their projects.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require --dev daniel-werner/php-quality-tools

After installing with composer, run the following command from the root directory of your project:


This will copy the default xml settings for the tools and to set up the scripts in the composer.json.

The install script will try to guess the source code directory in your project, if it is a Laravel application it will use the app directory, if it is a package it will use the src directory, otherwise the current directory.

You can pass the source code directory as the first argument of the install script, like this:

vendor/bin/phpqt-install my-app-src

After the installation the xml configurations can be found in your projects root directory. You can customize the phpcs and phpmd configurations by changing the settings in the xml files.


The package defines the following scripts in the composer.json:

  • composer inspect: this command runs the PHP Code Sniffer (phpcs) and the PHP Static Analysis Tool (phpstan). It will analyze your code style and run the phpstan with the default minimum level=0
  • composer inspect-fix: this command will try to fix the problems found by the inspection by running the PHP Coding Standards Fixer (php-cs-fixer) and the PHP Code Beautifier and Fixer (phpcbf).
  • composer insights: runs the PHP Mess Detector to find any potential issues in your code.
