PhpStorm 2017.2 Help

Opening Files from Command Line

Opening a file in the editor

PhpStorm helps opening a file for editing so that the caret rests at the specified line.

To open a file for editing

  • In the command line, type the following:
    <PhpStorm> <path1> --line <number> <path2>
    where:
    • <PhpStorm> is the platform-specific product launcher
    • <path1> is the path to the project that contains the desired file
    • <number> is the number of the line, where the caret should rest
    • <path2> is the path to the file to be opened

Examples

Windows

PhpStorm.exe C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter --line 3 C:\SamplesProjects\MetersToInchesConverter\src\javascript\numbers.js

macOS

/Applications/PhpStorm.app/Contents/MacOS/phpstorm ~/PhpStormProjects/untitled45 --line 1 ~/PhpStormProjects/untitled45/sample.sass
