Martin Hujer has put together a new post to his site sharing some of the PhpStorm plugins he considers essential for Symfony development, making your life easier as you create applications with this popular framework.
I've been using PhpStorm for quite a while and I'm still surprised now and then when it suggests an auto-completion for something I thought that's not possible.
But there are still many things - usually framework- or library-specific - that PhpStorm cannot do on its own. But there are plugins that can step in place and do the magic for specific framework or library.
Several of the plugins are more for improving PHP development in general but others are more Symfony-specific:
- PHP Annotations
- PHP Toolbox
- Symfony Plugin
- PHPUnit Enhancement
- PHP composer.json support
- Php Inspections (EA Extended)
- Twig Support
- .env files support
Each item in the list comes with a brief introduction to the plugin, links to find out more information, and, in some cases, animations of it in use in the editor.
