PhpStorm 2020.2 Help

Saving Projects as Templates

You can save a project as a template. If you do so, you'll be able to create template-based projects, that is, the projects that are nearly identical to the template project.

The projects that you have saved as templates appear in the User-defined category in the Create New Project Dialog dialog.

Unnecessary templates can be deleted in the Manage Project Templates dialog.

Save a project as a template

  1. From the main menu, select Tools | Save Project as Template.

  2. In the dialog that opens, name the template and provide a description. For the description, you can use the <b> and </b>, and <i> and </i> tags for formatting.

Templates are saved to the projectTemplates folder in the IDE configuration directory.

Create a project from a template

  1. Click Create New Project on the Welcome screen or select File | New Project from the main menu.

  2. In the dialog that opens, click the User-defined node and select the required template.

Delete project templates

  1. From the main menu, select Tools | Manage Project Templates.

  2. Select the template that you want to remove and click the Remove button.
