I'm in the middle of evaluating the purchase of PhpStorm and currently I'm looking at the code formatting functionality but I don't seem to be getting it to work as expected.
I use PhpStorm 2019.1.2 on macOS Mojave
I have a Drupal 8.6.x application in ~/path/to/dev/web setup with composer. I use DrupalVM to run the site.
As per instructions here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/phpstorm/drupal-support.html#drupal_set_code_style
I set up PhpStorm to use the Drupal code standards.
Settings > Lang & Fr > PHP > Quality Tools > Code Sniffer
is set to Local with path set to ~/path/to/dev/vendor/bin/phpcs
Path is validated and found OK.
Path to phpcbf is set to ~/path/to/dev/vendor/bin/phpcbf (which is in that location)
PHP CS Fixer is not set.
Settings > Editor > Inspections > Quality Tools > PHP Code Sniffer Validation
- Show sniff name is set
- Installed standard path is set to ~/path/to/dev/vendor/drupal/coder/coder_sniffer/Drupal
- Coding standard is set to Drupal
When I open one of my files (~/path/to/dev/web/modules/custom/my_module/src/Controller/MyController.php) the warnings are shown.
When I choose Code > Reformat Code, the code is reformatted according to the Drupal standard (2 spaces, brace on the same line as the function e.g.).
However, the file shows many warnings and when I hover over the line I see 'phpcs: PEAR.......' warnings.
When I run Code > Code inspections
I get lots of PEAR related warnings.
I have already spent a day trying to figure this out. Restarting PhpStorm, clearing it's caches, starting from scratch adding the project.
I'm at a loss here what to do.
