PhpStorm 2020.1 Help

Code Inspection: 'require()' is used instead of 'import'

Reports when require() is used and helps to replace the require() call with the import statement.

Enable Convert require() inside inner scopes with Fix all action to convert all require() calls inside the nested functions and statements when using the Fix all action.

Please note that converting the require() statements inside inner scopes to the import statements may cause changes in the semantics of the code. Import statements are static module dependencies and are hoisted, which means that they are moved to the top of the current module. require() calls load modules dynamically. They can be executed conditionally and their scope is defined by the expression in which they are used.
Clear Convert require() inside inner scopes with Fix all action option to prevent any changes in these complex cases when using Fix all action.
