❀️ Simple PHP Code Parser

first published here: https://suckup.de/2020/08/simple-php-code-parser/

It based on code from β€œJetBrains/phpstorm-stubs” but instead of Php-Reflection we now use nikic/PHP-Parser, BetterReflection, phpDocumentor and PHPStan/phpdoc-parser internally. So, you can get even more information about the code. For example, psalm- / phpstan-phpdoc annotations or inheritdoc from methods.

Install:

composer require voku/simple-php-code-parser

Link:

voku/Simple-PHP-Code-Parser

More:


Example: get value from define in β€œ\foo\bar” namespace

$code = '
  <?php
  namespace foo\bar;
  define("FOO_BAR", "Lall");
';

$phpCode = PhpCodeParser::getFromString($code);
$phpConstants = $phpCode->getConstants();

$phpConstants['\foo\bar\FOO_BAR']->value; // 'Lall'
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Example: get information about @property phpdoc from a class

$code = '
  <?php
  /** 
   * @property int[] $foo 
   */
  abstract class Foo { }
';

$phpCode = PhpCodeParser::getFromString($code);
$phpClass = $phpCode->getClass('Foo');

$phpClass->properties['foo']->typeFromPhpDoc); // int
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Example: get classes from a string (or from a class-name or from a file or from a directory)

$code = '
<?php
namespace voku\tests;
class SimpleClass {}
$obja = new class() {};
$objb = new class {};
class AnotherClass {}
';

$phpCode = \voku\SimplePhpParser\Parsers\PhpCodeParser::getFromString($code);
$phpClasses = $phpCode->getClasses();

var_dump($phpClasses['voku\tests\SimpleClass']); // "PHPClass"-object
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
