PRs are welcome, will gladly help with any questions you may have, but pls try to avoid unnecessary refactoring and features that may cause considerable performance degradation, as such PRs won't be accepted. If in doubt, create an issue to discuss whether feature will be acceptable before starting to spend time on implementing it.
Autocomplete keys of associative arrays defined in other functions.
Jetbrains Repository: 9927-deep-assoc-completion
(a bit more relaxed usage guide can be found here)
When you are going to type an associative key of a variable, like in
$user[''], put caret between quotes and press
space. The plugin will analyze your code, determine what keys does
$user have and suggest completion.
To go to the key definition, hover on it and press
click or put carret on it and press
You can specify function argument type using
@param SomeType $varName = Some::phpExpression(), like
@param $anime = ['genre' => 'shounen', 'studio' => 'Shaft'].
= is mandatory and expression must be a valid php expression. Class methods can be specified either with complete namespace like
\Very\Long\Namespace\ClassName::funcName(), or with just
You can specify
@return array keys as well:
/** * @return array [ * 'success' => true, * 'formObject' => new Form, * 'errors' => , * ] */ public static function processForm($arr);
Phpstorm does not give you method name completion when object is located in an associative array? Don't be sad, this plugin is exactly what you need!
Did you ever want an ability to find out which exactly test case does phpunit mean by the
with data set "17" without manually counting them? You can find this feature in Tools -> deep-assoc-completion -> To N-th Test. It moves your caret to the test case with the order you specify in the popup. If there are multiple
@dataProvider functions in the file, the function caret is currently in will be used. This action will work correctly only on more or less straightforward
Extremely useful for small private helper functions - you don't need to document args in each of them to get completion.

Shutout my thanks to the JetBrains for continuously supplying me an open source IDE license for this plugin development.
