A Symfony pre commit hook

========================== Checks in our pre-commit hook

  • Syntax check with php lint (“php -l”): We check every committed file has a valid PHP syntax.
  • Sync check of composer.json and composer.lock files: We check these two files are committed together in order to avoid committing the json but not the lock and generate some issue to another developers.
  • PHP CS Fixer check: With the –dry-run parameter it does not fix, just say what the problems are. With the –fixers parameter you can control what fixers you want to execute.
  • PHP Code Sniffer check: Same as before, but another rule that checks another rules.
  • PHPMD: We have enabled the controversial rules.
  • Unit Testing check: We run around 3.000 tests right now.
