Introducing Phexecute - PHP Code Runner

Some time ago I had posted about PHPExecute which is PHP code runner / tester. The purpose of PHPExecute was to quickly test some PHP code and save snippets for later use. PHPExecute was very basic, I always wanted to have ability to write tests, store unlimited snippets, check coding conventions based on PSR2 but I actually never updated it to implement those features. Last weekend I sat down and wrote Phexecute , it supersedes PHPExecute.

Phexecute has these features:

  • PHP Code_Sniffer to easily identify and fix problematic parts of code (through PSR-2)
  • Run PHPUnit tests and see results right inside browser
  • Run SimpleTest tests
  • Uses Symfony VarDumper component easy visualization of vars, arrays, objects
  • Ability to save unlimited snippets
  • Live PHP error highlighting
  • Easy to extend
