Top 23 PHP Code Analysis Projects

  • GitHub repo PHP Parser

    A PHP parser written in PHP

    Project mention: Tree-sitter: an incremental parsing system for programming tools | | 2021-02-22

    I wish there was a more universal format for parsers, but I just don't think there enough people who know their stuff.

    Take PHP, a language that a lot of people use: the tree-sitter-php extension doesn't support features added in 2019, let alone features added towards the end of 2020.

    If you want an up-to-date PHP parser, there's really only one open-source parser[0] that's accurate enough to be used on PHP codebases old and new, and it's written in PHP. Then if you want to parse in a robust fashion you have to adopt a number of hacks to get everything working.

    I hadn't encountered LSIF before – can GitHub be configured to use those maps?


  • GitHub repo PHP CS Fixer

    A tool to automatically fix PHP Coding Standards issues

    Project mention: Let's say you get an old, PHP5, mysql_*, horrible codebase, riddled with security issues and no composer. Your task is to make it work on PHP7+. | | 2021-08-29

    once these are done, composer require php codestyle fixer.

  • GitHub repo PHPStan

    PHP Static Analysis Tool - discover bugs in your code without running it!

    Project mention: PHP libraries and tools | | 2021-09-22

  • GitHub repo PHP Code Sniffer

    PHP_CodeSniffer tokenizes PHP files and detects violations of a defined set of coding standards.

    Project mention: PHP-backend Roadmap | | 2021-09-11

    But the quality of the code and its style may seem subjective things, but teamwork requires it really often. In the PSR-12 standard, you can find the list of recommendations on how to style it. That standard isn't the only existing one, but it's definitely the most common. To simplify following it you can use CodeSniffer. And in order to develop the habit of writing clean code, you can use Psalm, Phan, or PHPStan linters. There's no need to learn each – better to choose the one you like most. In my case it's Psalm.

  • GitHub repo phan

    Phan is a static analyzer for PHP. Phan prefers to avoid false-positives and attempts to prove incorrectness rather than correctness.

    Project mention: Emotional Rage: any static-typed PHP compilers? | | 2021-07-15

    You can use a static analyzer like Phan to lint the project.

  • GitHub repo Rector

    Instant Upgrades and Automated Refactoring of any PHP 5.3+ code

    Project mention: Is PHP outdated? | | 2021-09-01

    Something else mentioned in that episode that your teacher might find interesting is a recent tool called rector that's more or less babel for PHP, letting you use newer versions of PHP to code but still support older versions in production.

  • GitHub repo GrumPHP

    A PHP code-quality tool

    Project mention: PHP libraries and tools | | 2021-09-22

    GrumPHP: A PHP code-quality tool.

  • Nanos

    Run Linux Software Faster and Safer than Linux with Unikernels.

  • GitHub repo PHP Metrics

    Beautiful and understandable static analysis tool for PHP

  • GitHub repo PHPLOC

    A tool for quickly measuring the size of a PHP project.

    Project mention: PHP Static Analysis Tools Review | | 2021-04-28

    PHPLOC also shows interesting statistics about your project. It is not as powerful as PHPDepend, but you can also get an interesting overview of your code size, complexity, number of classes, etc.

  • GitHub repo PHPCPD

    Copy/Paste Detector (CPD) for PHP code.

    Project mention: Twelve-factor app módszer a gyakorlatban / 1. rész | | 2021-08-22
  • GitHub repo PHP Mess Detector

    PHPMD is a spin-off project of PHP Depend and aims to be a PHP equivalent of the well known Java tool PMD. PHPMD can be seen as an user friendly frontend application for the raw metrics stream measured by PHP Depend.
