Automate code standards validation with Composer, Git Hooks and PHPCodeSniffer

clean code composer git phpcs

Recently I had to setup a new project and like always I prefer to enforce the code standards on the project so that I don’t need to worry about this ever again. Because I realized there are a lot of people who don’t know how this could be accomplished I decided to write a short post about this, maybe it helps others out there.

How to properly load local dependencies with composer

Compile your assets with Symfony Encore

symfony encore webpack manage assets

These days I’m playing with Symfony Encore, the new tool for managing assets in Symfony 3.3. It is a tool inspired from Laravel Mix which is the asset manager from Laravel Framework, build by Jeffrey Way the owner of Laracasts. At the time Jeff created Mix, I wanted to use it on Symfony projects, so I decided to wrap laravel-mix package into a symfony bundle. So elixir-mix-bundle was created. If you used it already, Symfony Encore will look a lot like it.
