IntelliJ IDEA 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 IntelliJ IDEA is provided through a dedicated Phing Build tool window.

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.
