MediaWiki coding conventions


This project implements a set of rules for use with PHP CodeSniffer.

See MediaWiki conventions on our wiki for a detailed description of the coding conventions that are validated by these rules. :-)

How to install

  1. Create a composer.json which adds this project as a dependency:

    ``` { "require-dev": { "mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer": "0.7.2" }, "scripts": { "test": [ "phpcs -p -s" ], "fix": "phpcbf" } } ```

  2. Create a phpcs.xml with our configuration:

    ``` <?xml version="1.0"?> <ruleset> <rule ref="vendor/mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer/MediaWiki"> <file>.</file> <arg name="extensions" value="php,php5,inc"> <arg name="encoding" value="utf8"> <exclude-pattern>vendor</exclude-pattern> </ruleset> ``

  3. Install:composer update
  4. Run:composer test
  5. Run:composer fix` to auto-fix some of the errors, others might need manual intervention.
  6. Commit!

Note that for most MediaWiki projects, we'd also recommend adding a PHP linter to your composer.json – see the full documentation for more details.
