Using PHP_CodeSniffer June 12, 2009

INSTALLATION
There’s many ways to install PHP_CodeSniffer.
You could try (on debian-base) apt-get install php-codesniffer – or if you have pear installed you could try pear install PHP_CodeSniffer. Or lastly, the way I like to do it, manually.

I like to perform a manual installation on tools like this so I know where to find them and manipulate them in the future.

Manual install:


Next, you need to replace the php_bin path in the phpcs file with the path to the php binary:

Test it out with:
./phpcs /path/to/some/phpfile.php

Now to finalize the install, there’s many places you could place the binary, I personally prefer to camp the working files like this in /usr/local/bin

Very in-depth explanation of *nix filesystem

Came across this while reading about build integration for development and thought I’d make a note about it. It’s much more than just a ‘user files go in the /home/’ directory sheet – it’s everything you could imagine regarding why *nix systems are laid out like they are. Link:
