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 ```

Linux

`~/jetbrains/PhpStorm-2017.2.1/bin/phpstorm.sh ~/PhpStormProjects/test_project/ --line 2 ~/PhpStormProjects/test_project/sample.xml`
