This plugin is a Static Code Analysis tool for PHP (aka inspections in JetBrains products).

It covers:
- architecture related issues
- weak types control and possible code construct simplifications
- performance issues
- non-optimal, duplicate and suspicious "if" conditions
- validation of magic methods usage
- regular expressions
- validation of exception handling workflow
- compatibility issues
- variety of time-consuming bugs
- PhpUnit API usage
- security issues

Some of inspections are expecting conditional statements (e.g. "if") to use group statement for wrapping body expressions. If this requirement is met then additional inspections are applied to the source code.

For Mac shortcuts, see this reference card. Windows/Linux ones are:
Alt + Shift + I to inspect current file with current profile
Ctrl + Alt + Shift + I to run inspection by name
Ctrl + Shift + F4 to close results of inspection.

On some projects CPU and therefore battery usage could be intensive, so it should be taken into account when traveling with a laptop.

Note: we are sending anonymous crash-reports and installation statistics to Google Analytics. You are welcome to review the implementation.

Recent change notes

Bug-fixes. BTW, it would be awesome to get more supporters on Patreon.

- Worked out crash reports for February
- Usability tweaks (reporting style, more inspections skipping tests scope)

- Callable parameter usage violates definition: resolved false-positives (multiple cases)
- Foreach source to iterate over: resolved false-positives (multiple cases)
- Insecure 'uniqid(...)' usage: resolved a false-positive (function import reported)
- Statement could be decoupled from foreach: resolved false-positives (multiple cases)
- Unnecessary type casting: resolved false-positives (null coalesce + globals)
- Unsupported string offset operations: resolved false-positives (global context)
- 'in_array(...)', 'array_search(...)' type unsafe usage: resolved false-positives (search in strings array)
- 'str(i)str(...)' could be replaced with 'str(i)pos(...)': resolved false-positives (true constant equality)

- Alias functions usage: new patterns
- Backtick operator usage: implemented (thank you David Rodrigues)
- Deprecated dynamic calls to scope introspection: implemented
- Deprecated configuration options: new patterns
- Instanceof can be used: implemented
- PhpUnit: bugs and best practices: new patterns
