Hi all. Today, we will show you about PHPStan integration which will be available in the next NetBeans version i.e. NetBeans 10 as a new code analysis feature.
If you have already used other code analysis features(e.g. Code Sniffer), you should be able to use this with similar way soon.
First of all, let's set the Options (Tools > Options > PHP > Code Analysis > PHPStan). You can set a script path, a configuration file path and a level.
At least you have to set the PHPStan script path to "PHPStan". If you don't set "Configuration" path, the configuration file of project root directory would be used.
Then, let's inspect a project/direcoty/file using PHPStan. Please click "Source > Inspect...".
The inspect dialog is shown.
Please choose "Scope" which you would like to inspect and PHPStan as "Configuration".
The files are inspected when you click the "inspect" button.
Finally, The results are shown in the inspector window after the inspection is done.
That's all for today. As always, please test it. You can download a development version from
If you find some issues or enhancements, please report them to JIRA
(Components: php - Code). Thanks.
