Language Injections

For the Language Injections page to be available, the IntelliLang plugin must be enabled. (This plugin is bundled with the IDE and enabled by default.)

Use this page to manage the list of available language injections and configure the language injection feature for text, attributes, and parameters.

See also, Using Language Injections.

Injection entries

You can sort the information by any of the columns by clicking the cells in the header row. The current sorting status is shown by the corresponding sorting marker: sortMarkerAsc for the ascending order or sortMarkerDesc for the descending order.

ItemDescription
CheckboxesUse the checkboxes to enable or disable the corresponding injections.

You can also enable or disable a number of injections at once. To do that, select the required injections in the list and click Enable Selected Injections iconSelectAll or Disable Selected Injections iconUnSelectAllRemoteRunDialog on the toolbar.

Name The language in which the injection is available, the injection name and, in parentheses, the package that contains the corresponding implementation.
LanguageThe injected language.
ScopeOne of the following:
  • Built-in. This is a category for pre-defined injections. In terms of the scope, those are the IDE-level injections.
  • IDE. User-defined injections that are available in all of your projects.
  • Project. User-defined injections that are available only in the current project.

You can move the user-defined injections between the IDE and the project levels by using icon injection move to project make global on the toolbar.

iconImport.png Import injection entries from another PhpStorm installation:
  1. In the Select Path dialog, select the IntelliLang.xml file to import the info from.

    As a result, a dialog opens that shows the entries contained in the selected configuration file.

  2. Remove the entries that you don't want to import using the Delete button. (This doesn't affect the contents of the source configuration file.)

This selective import feature makes it easy to share certain configurations in a team without losing any local entries as it happens when the settings are imported via the core Importing Settings feature.

exportToTextFile.png Export the selected injection entries to a file. In the Export Selected Injections to File dialog that opens:
  • To add the entries to an existing file, select the destination file.
  • To save the entries in a new file, specify the file name and choose the file type from the list.
