Tell me about new product features as they come out
PhpStorm is perfect for working with Symfony, Laravel, Drupal, WordPress, Zend Framework, Magento, Joomla!, CakePHP, Yii, and other frameworks.
The editor actually 'gets' your code and deeply understands its structure, supporting all the PHP language features for modern and legacy projects. It provides the best code completion, refactorings, on-the-fly error prevention, and more.
Perform many routine tasks right from the IDE, thanks to the Version Control Systems integration, support for remote deployment, databases/SQL, command-line tools, Docker, Composer, REST Client, and many other tools.
All the features in WebStorm are included into PhpStorm, with full-fledged support for PHP and Databases/SQL support added on top.
Hundreds of inspections take care of verifying your code as you type, analyzing the whole project. PHPDoc support, code (re)arranger and formatter, quick-fixes, and other features help you write neat code that is easy to maintain.
Be the master of your codebase thanks to the efficient, lightning-fast navigation features. The IDE understands where you want to go and gets you there instantly.
Refactor your code reliably with the safe Rename, Move, Delete, Extract Method, Inline Variable, Push members Up / Pull members Down, Change Signature, and many other refactorings. Language-specific refactorings help you perform project-wide changes in a matter of clicks, which can all be safely undone.
PhpStorm is renowned for its zero-configuration Visual Debugger, providing extraordinary insight into what goes on in your application at every step. It works with Xdebug and Zend Debugger, and can be used both locally and remotely. Unit Testing with PHPUnit, BDD with Behat and profiler integration are all also available.
If you work with templates, debugging instantly becomes tricky: your only option is to locate the PHP file compiled from the template, and debug this file instead. With PhpStorm 2019.1 and Xdebug, you can now do step-debugging in the original uncompiled .twig and .blade.php files of these two popular template engines. All debugging benefits are available here: see the execution context and variables, add watches, run step-by-step, and all others!
With the new Unused Declaration inspection, you can now deal with legacy codebase and remove dead code. When you work in the editor, PhpStorm will highlight classes, class members, and functions that are probably never used. The Unused Declaration inspection takes into account dynamic usages, for example done via magic methods, too. You can run the inspection in batch mode and see the all the dead code pieces of the whole project or any of its parts.
As always, PhpStorm comes with some new refactorings, intentions & quick-fixes to make your daily coding routines just a bit easier. With the new Move to Class refactoring, you can move functions or constants from a PHP file to a Class. PhpStorm will find and modify all their usages, too. We have also added a few useful intentions for quick string manipulations. And there are even more!
@phpstorm's code completion is incredibly useful.
@geeh @phpstorm I'm hooked mate. I've been so productive lately it's silly. Keep up the great work.
@phpstorm is magical... in a good way. I find myself saying "oh that's convenient" over and over.
If you are developing in PHP and are not using PhpStorm, you are working too hard.
"I'm so spoiled by PhpStorm!"
