IntelliJ IDEA 2023.1 Help


IntelliJ IDEA supports integration with the Phing build framework. Phing is mainly intended for building PHP projects, but it can also be 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

Install Phing

  • Make sure Phing is installed on your computer. If you are using an AMP, the package may already contain Phing.

Install the PHP and Phing plugins

This functionality relies on the PHP and Phing plugins that should be installed and enabled in your IDE.

The plugins are available only in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and select Plugins.

  2. Switch to the Marketplace tab and use the search field to find the PHP and Phing plugins.

  3. Click Install and restart the IDE if prompted.

Accessing Phing Build tool window

  1. Open a Phing build file in the editor or select it in the Project tool window, and then choose Add as Phing build file from the context menu of the selection.

  2. Choose View | Tool Windows | Phing Build from 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.
