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.
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.
- Install and enable the Phing Support plugin. The plugin is not bundled with IntelliJ IDEA, but it can be installed from the JetBrains plugin repository as described in Installing, Updating and Uninstalling Repository Plugins and Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
Accessing Phing Buide 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 View | Tool Windows | Phing Build 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.
