Code Sniffer

Entered the theme review theme on make.wordpress.org. Today a lot of software was installed:

  • Virtualbox (for a linux sandbox for WordPress)
  • Installed the recommended bugtragging plugins in the sandbox.

Then I read the extensive documentation on coding standards, and the things a theme reviewer should look at.

The codesniffer gave some problems. The recipe found here worked.  The documentation in a zip-file on Slack missed many practical details. And so did the page on Github with the codesniffer code.

First phpcs was installed via apt-get. The next steps are contained in this shell history dump:

2010  phpcs --standard=WordPress wp-config.php
 2011  pear
 2012  phpcs --standard=WordPress wp-config.php
 2013  sudo pear channel-update pear.php.net
 2014  pear upgrade-all
 2015  phpcs --standard=WordPress wp-config.php
 2016  pear install wordpress
 2017  composer create-project wp-coding-standards/wpcs:dev-master --no-dev
 2018  sudo apt-get install composer
 2019  composer create-project wp-coding-standards/wpcs:dev-master --no-dev
 2020  phpcs --standard=WordPress wp-config.php
 2021  phpcs --config-set installed_paths wpcs
 2022  sudo phpcs --config-set installed_paths wpcs
 2023  phpcs -i
 2024  phpcs --standard=WordPress wp-config.php
