Joomla Coding Standards

This repository includes the Joomla coding standard definition for PHP Codesniffer along with a few other helpful resources. The PHP_CodeSniffer standard will never be 100% accurate, but should be viewed as a strong set of guidelines while writing software for Joomla.

Requirements

Installation

Installation is as easy as checking out the repository to the correct location within PHP_CodeSniffer's directory structure.

Install PHP_CodeSniffer.

pear install PHP_CodeSniffer

Install the Joomla standard.

git clone http://github.com/joomla/coding-standards.git `pear config-get php_dir`/PHP/CodeSniffer/Standards/Joomla

Running

You can use the installed Joomla standard like:

phpcs --standard=Joomla path/to/code

Alternatively if it isn't installed you can still reference it by path like:

phpcs --standard=path/to/joomla/coding-standards path/to/code
