PhpStorm for WordPress Tips
I’ve been using PhpStorm for PHP + WordPress development for gosh, at least 5 years now. For those who aren’t familiar, PhpStorm is a PHP-specific IDE (“integrated development environment”; read: text editor with lots of special features) from JetBrains. JetBrains make other tools you may have heard of like PyCharm, WebStorm, and IntelliJ IDEA.
Anyway, the thing that this little article from Iain Poulson made very clear to me—and I did already suspect—is that I’m using just a fraction of the relevant and cool features that the tool has to offer. I figure at least a few people out there are rather-lazy PhpStorm users. Or maybe are wondering if the tool would be worth the investment for them. If you’re either of those types, give this article a read.
