PHP CodeSniffer for CakePHP

This repository contains the CakePHP standard for use with the pear package PHP CodeSniffer


Obviously, you need PHP CodeSniffer for this repository to have any meaning.

Locate the CodeSniffer/Standards folder in your CodeSniffer install, and install this repository with the name "Cake" e.g.:

cd /usr/share/pear/PHP/CodeSniffer/Standards/
git clone git:// Cake

If you work mainly with CakePHP, or your work simply follows the same coding standards, you may wish to configure PHP Code Sniffer to use this standard by default:

phpcs --config-set default_standard Cake

Use as a git pre-commit hook

To run phpcs checks each time you commit a file, you can use the pre-commit hook provided in this repo. For example

cd /var/www/apps/myapp/.git/hooks/
cp /usr/share/pear/PHP/CodeSniffer/Standards/Cake/pre-commit .
chmod +x pre-commit
