PhpStorm supports integration with the Phing build framework. Phing is mainly intended for building PHP projects, but it can be also used as a build tool in a number of areas. Phing functionality in PhpStorm is provided through a dedicated Phing Build tool window.
In this section:
Before You Start
- Make sure Phing is downloaded and set up on your computer. If you are using an AMP, the package may already contain Phing.
- Make sure the Phing Support plugin is enabled. The plugin is bundled with PhpStorm and activated by default. If the plugin is not activated, enable it on the Plugins page of the Settings / Preferences Dialog as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
Accessing the Phing Build tool window
- Open a Phing build file in the editor or select it in the Project tool window, and then choose Add as Phing build file on the context menu of the selection.
- Choose on the main menu. The tool window can be accessed after you have opened it through the context menu of a Phing build file in the editor or in the Project tool window.
