Postfix Code Completion for PHP in PhpStorm 9 EAP

PhpStorm 9 brings postfix code completion for PHP, earlier introduced for Java in IntelliJ IDEA and for JavaScript in WebStorm. This new kind of code completion can help raise your productivity even more.

Postfix code completion helps reduce backward caret jumps as you write code. It lets you transform an already typed expression to another one based on the postfix you’ve added, the type of expression, and its context.

For example, when you apply the .if postfix to an expression (just press Tab), it will wrap it with an if statement. Here’s how it looks in action:

PhpStorm 9 EAP 141.891

PhpStorm 9 EAP 141.891 is available for download.

From the PHP side, this build brings following exciting features:

  • Remote edit: open single file directly from the remote host for editing

One of the most-demanded features is here: single file can be now opened directly from the remote host (such as FTP, SFTP, FTPS, etc) and edited in the IDE without adding/downloading file to the local project.

In order to start editing a file from remote host, just double click on the file name or select the Edit Remote File action from the file context menu:

phpstorm_remote_edit_context

The file will be opened in the editor, only some of the PhpStorm features are available in this mode (such as basic code completion). For debugging, some of the refactorings, and other advanced features, the file should be located inside the project.

phpstorm_remote_editAs soon as the file editing is finished, it can be uploaded to the remote host using the icon in the toolbar or with a shortcut Alt + Shift + Q. Diff and revert actions are also available.

We are still working on improving remote edit feature, please see all the related issues.

  • Postfix code completion for PHP

We are glad to introduce Postfix code completion for PHP, a new kind of completion which will extend your productivity even more.

Postfix code completion helps reduce backward caret jumps as you write code. It lets you transform an already typed expression to another one based on the postfix you added, the type of expression, and its context. For example, the .if postfix applied to an expression (with Tab key) wraps it with an if statement.

phpstorm_postfix_completion

The postfix completion suggestions are shown as part of the basic completion. In case you’d like to see the whole list of postfix completions applicable in the context, use the Ctrl + J (Cmd - J) shortcut. All postfix completion templates can be found in Settings / Preferences | Editor | General | Postfix Completion.

  • Re-run (Ctrl+F5 / CMD – F5) shortcut bug is fixed
  • Scratch files can be run or debugged with PHP Script or PHPUnit local run/debug configurations
  • and more (see full list in our issue tracker)

Other changes from IntelliJ platform and web are also included, see complete release notes.

Download PhpStorm 9 EAP build 141.891 for your platform from project EAP page and please report any bugs and feature request to our Issue Tracker. Patch update from the previous version (PhpStorm 9 EAP build 141.791) is already available.
