Setup your IDE

In the Appendix, you can find some hints that might be useful for PhpStorm: Setup.

Coding Guidelines

There is an .editorconfig file in the TYPO3 core repository. See for more information.

Please note that the rules in .editorconfig are very minimal. So, additionally, setup your Editor / IDE to use PSR-1 / PSR-2 for PHP files, and use the other standards as described in the Coding Guidelines of TYPO3.

See PhpStorm setup CGL for information about setting up PhpStorm to comply with the Coding Guidelines.
