1.0 [P3] Configuration for coding standards

Support for configurable coding standards. If we want to spread NetBeans into corporate sphere,then the codding style has to be configurable not to block Continuous Integration

Each configuration should be defined in separate configuration file. There should be possible to add its own coding standard whereas a few predefined standards(how to write PHP code) should be delivered with Netbeans PHP. These predefined configurations could be taken from PHP Code Sniffer(called: MySource, PEAR, PHPCS, Squiz and Zend), which seems to be de facto standards.
1.1 [P2] Bracket matcher refactoring The current bracket matcher is based on the indentation of the source code. This doesn't work when the code is not indented according our rules. There are bugs that it will be solved by this.

1.2 [P3] Model stabilization, improvements</span> Model is heavily used inside PHP editor and should prepared to be useful for framework support developers

  • document it
  • stabilize implementation
  • provide needed changes to support Cake PHP and other similar frameworks.

1.0 [P2] Generating PHP Doc This is one of the missing features that could be coverd in the release. Generate PHP documentation from PHP comments in the source files. It's similar to the generating JavaDoc for java source files. The PHP support will use the PHP documentation generater available in the PHP runtime.
