Sublime PHP

This is a collection of (hopefully) useful extras for writing PHP code using the excellent Sublime Text 2 editor.


We're waiting to be added to Package Control, so for now you'll need to clone this repo into your Sublime Text 2 "Packages/" folder.

PHPUnit Support For Sublime Text 2

This plugin adds support for running PHPUnit tests from inside Sublime Text 2.

We add right-click menu options to:

  • Run all unit tests (available in all PHP files)
  • Run the unit tests in the current file (only available in *Test.php files)

To make this work, you need to create a phpunit.xml.dist or phpunit.xml file in the top-level folder of your code (projects using Phix get this for free).

You can also right-click on any phpunit.xml or phpunit.xml.dist file in your sidebar to use it to run PHPUnit.

PHPUnit support is based on the Ruby Tests plugin


We add the following snippets to speed up writing PHP code.

To use any of the snippets, simply type the name of the snippet, then press the key. Sublime Text 2 will insert the snippet, and you can then use the key to move through any placeholders that you need to replace.

  • license-newbsd: insert the new BSD license (eg into files)
  • php-getset: create getter/setter methods quickly and easily (based on a snippet originally published by @akrabat)
  • php-newbsd: insert the new BSD license as a PHP docblock
  • php-section-comment: insert a prominent comment to help break up the sections of your class
