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 8.0 time frame. Probably not every feature, item will be done, but it's mentioned to track it for next releases.


Priority Task Notes Status
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.


Priority Task Notes Status
P1 Regenerate PHP runtime signature files Provide new signature files for binary libraries.
P2 Support for more Testing frameworks Add TestingFrameworkProvider and implement it for PHPUnit.
P2 Composer improvements E.g. UI for searching.
P2 Evaluate remote FS Project development directly on the remote drive.
P3 Continuous results for PHPUnit Support for --printer parameter.
P3 Run Focused Test Allow user to run just focused test (as same as in Java).
P3 More Test roots Allow to have more Test roots. Likely not possible for Source roots (due to (S)FTP support - which Source root(s) should be downloaded/uploaded?)
P3 Phar Provide basic Phar support.
P3 Remote synchronization for directories.
P3 Includes/excludes for remote 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.


Priority Task Notes Status
P2 Improve existing support Try to improve existing support, especially the editor part. Huge changes/improvements in the PHP editor area are needed.
P2 ZF2 support Support Zend Framework 2.
P3 PhpDocumentor2 support? Evaluate PhpDocumentor2, currently, in Alpha version.
P4 CodeSniffer support Using code sniffer for reporting coding style issues.


Priority Task Notes Status
P2 Zend Debugger support issue #168275 (49 votes)
