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. Important note: currently the latest PHPCS is the 3.x series. There is a development branch for the Joomla custom sniffs Which is compatible with the PHPCS 3.x series. Although PEAR and composer give you the option to install PHPCS 3.x by default the Joomla custom sniffs releases are currently only compatable with PHPCS 2.x and will not work, so we remind you to always install the PHPCS 2.x series if you are using the Joomla custom sniffs. If you want to test the Joomla Code Standard development branch for PHPCS 3.x, please manually install the 3.x branch.
