Code Coverage for PHPUnit
We continue developing integration with tools essential for any developer who cares about the quality of their code. Code Coverage for PHPUnit marks covered and uncovered lines visually right in the editor and shows how much of your code is covered with tests.
Drupal Coding Style Support
PhpStorm 4.0 contains a bundled predefined coding style for the popular Drupal content management platform. Currently just reformatting your code in PhpStorm removes 99% of errors reported by Drupal coder-review and helps your code meet Drupal coding standards.
ECMAScript Harmony Support
Check Your Code with PHP Code Sniffer
PhpStorm 4.0 allows you to check your code on the fly with PHP Code Sniffer (phpcs), just by opening a PHP file. The check is triggered every time you change something in the file, so it's extremely easy to fix problems reported by PHP Code Sniffer.
