PHPCS VariableAnalysis

PHP_Codesniffer-VariableAnalysis is a plugin for the PHP_CodeSniffer static analysis tool for PHP, adding static analysis of variable use within your PHP programs.

Features it add include:

  • Detection of unused variables.

  • Detection of undefined variables.

  • Redeclaration of variables.

  • Use of self:: static member variables outside their class.

Warning severity for each of these events can be tailored as can other customization options such as defining your own site list of pass-by-reference functions that can accept undefined variables, or a list of site-specific "junk" variables that are safe to be unused.

You can find more on my GitHub page for PHPCS VariableAnalysis.
