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
- 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 to Google Analytics. You are welcome to review the implementation.
