PHP coding standard
The Magento core development team uses the PSR-1: Basic Coding Standard and PSR-2: Coding Style Guide. Magento recommends that developers who create Magento extensions and customizations also use these standards.
Where possible, use
PHP_CodeSniffer to automatically enforce these standards.
Otherwise, you must apply these standards and requirements through rigorous code review.
Class name resolution standard
For class name resolution, use the
instead of a string literal for every class name reference outside of that class.
This includes references to:
- Fully qualified class name
- Imported/non-imported class name
- Namespace relative class name
- Import relative class name
