WordPress PHPStorm coding standards

May 24th, 2012

I’m a regular user of JetBrains PhpStorm coding package and recently I’ve been doing a bit of WordPress orientated work – so how can I ensure my code matches the WordPress coding standards? Well, using Rarst’s WordPress coding standards helps.

  1. Just download the file and save it as “WordPress.xml” into your Php Storm folder such as .WebIde40/config/codestyles (on Linux, this was /home/[username]/.WebIde40/config/codestyles : I did have to show hidden files in Nautilus: on Windows it’ll be something like C:\Users\[username]\.WebIde40\config\codestyles\ ). To find your configuration file easily, run the following commands:
    • Linux: cd ~/.WebIde40/config/codestyles
    • Mac OS X: cd ~/Library/Preferences/WebIde40/codestyles
    • Windows: cd c:/Users/USERNAME/.WebIde40/config/codestyles
  2. Restart PhpStorm
  3. Load your project and go to “File -> Settings”
  4. Select “Project Settings -> Code Style”
  5. Select “Scheme: WordPress” and OK
  6. Select “Code -> Reformat code…” and wait for your code to be reformatted

This won’t catch every item (such as the Yoda conditions), but it’ll at least make it a bit closer.

Blogging: New blog design v5?

February 24th, 2009

Well, this at least the 4th major redesign this blog has had (previous ones being: January 2005, August 2003, June 2003) and it’s the one I’ve spent least amount of time on, but looks the nicest in my opinion.

I’m using a combination of TheBuckMaker’s Aerodrome theme with the WPTouch iPhone theme providing the iPhone theming (with the compatibility being checked by using the How to emulate iPhone (Change user agent) in Safari and Firefox tips for testing on the desktop). I’m also utilising the Twitter for WordPress plugin to pull my @rchiswell twitter feed and SEO No Duplicate for search engine canonical links. I’m also using the WordPress plugins WP-PageNavi, Trackback Validator, Sociable and Chris Black’s digg widget.

Hopefully, not only has it provided easier access to the rest of my online presence, but it has also made the site a lot easier on the eye and helps you access the information you came here for quicker and easier (although feel free to read any of my ramblings which takes your fancy).
