PHP Development Plan for NetBeans 7.2

Version: 0.1 - draft

Disclaimer: The content of this NetBeans development wiki page is intended for pre-planning purposes ONLY. The development, release, and timing of any feature or functionality described here should not be treated as final, and is subject to change at any time at the sole discretion of Oracle. For information about NetBeans software releases please visit the NetBeans Roadmap or the NetBeans Release Planning wiki.

This document is a collection of ideas that should be done in NetBeans PHP support area during NetBeans 7.2 time frame. Probably not every feature, item will be done, but it's mentioned to track it for next releases.


Common

Priority Task Notes
P2 "Annotation" providers Provide SPI for annotation providers such as PHPDoc, PHPUnit, Symfony2 etc. Just simple support would be fine (code-completion only after "@" character).


Editor

Priority Task Notes
P3 Fast import like in Java When there is used an PHP Class though code completion, then should be automatically inserted use statement for the class
P3 Implement code folding for code statements The current code folding works for classes and methods/functions. Users are asking for code folding of code statements like if, while.... . See issue 186731
P3 Support of PHPUnit tags in PHPDoc Issue #189983
P3 Adding coding styles There are many formatting options for PHP files. There should be formatting profiles, that can be saved per projects. See for example issue #188785
P3 Update PHP Parser The current PHP Parser doesn't reflect some corner cases of PHP 5.3. The parser should be uptodate.
P3 Improve error handling The current error handling is based mainly on the parser errors. Messages from parser are not very understandable for users. This situation can be improved through introducing a logic that will try improve the error handling.
P3 Improve finding code completion context in broken code The code completion is based on the parser result if the code is ok. When the code is broken, then cc is based on lexer tokens. This can be improved to provide better code completion.
P4 Improve sanitizetion of the code Many ide features are based on the parser result (AST tree). Unfortunately the code in editor is the bulk of time broken, and the AST can not be build around the parser error. There is already used way to sanitized the code (correct virtually the code) that provides better ASTs. There can be added other cases to improve it.
P4 Improve handling of long strings When there is pressed ENTER key inside a string, then the string should be concatenated like in Java editor.
P4 Allow to customize PHP Documentation generation The current generating of PHP Documentation before classes and methods / functions is hardcoded. According the user requests, this should be configurable.

Project

Priority Task Notes
P1 Regenerate PHP runtime signature files Provide new signature files for binary libraries..
P1 PHP 5.4 features Run project via internal web server etc.
P2 Evaluate possible CI integration Integrate Hudson for PHP projects.
P3 Phar Provide basic Phar support.
P3 PHPUnit The functionality of PHPUnit support should be continuously improved.
P3 (S)FTP support The functionality of (S)FTP support should be continuously improved.
  • FTP with HTTP proxy NOT POSSIBLE, BUG IN FTP LIBRARY
  • includes/excludes for file transfer
P4 UI for PHP turn on/off signature files Provide ui, which allows to exclude and add the signature files from include path.
P4 Signature files generator Create new and more maintainable signature files generator.

Frameworks

Priority Task Notes
P2 Symfony2 framework Since we already support Symfony framework, we should also support its brand new version.
P2 Twig templates Template system used by Symfony2 framework.
P3 Doctrine2 framework The most advanced PHP ORM framework and database abstraction layer.
P3 ApiGen framework The "successor" of PHPDocumentor (seems to be not developed anymore).
P4 CodeSniffer support Using code sniffer for reporting codeing style issues.

Debugger

Priority Task Notes
P2 Zend Debugger support issue #168275 (19 votes)
