PHP Coding Standards

Projects and Code77 words1 minutes to read

For the past several years, I’ve been developing a coding style for PHP that all began with SimplePie.

Since then, I’ve been polishing the standards from one project to the next to the point where I believe that I have a solid, rational set of guidelines that others can share and re-use. Any feedback that other PHP developers may have is welcome. I’m hoping to incorporate the better bits of feedback into improvements to the standards. http://j.mp/php-standards
