Magicento – PhpStorm plugin for Magento development

Posted in Magento tips & tricks, magento shipping tips on October 30, 2012 0 comment(s)  

This post is intended for all Magento developers who use PhpStorm as their IDE. It’s about Magicento – free PhpStorm plugin for Magento developers.

Features in Magicento:

1. Goto

Magicento extends PhpStorm goto functionality in a way that you can now use goto also for factory methods and templates. You can go to destination class from factory method by using middle click (Ctrl+click, Ctrl+B).

Also, at the same way, you can go to any phtml template from layout xml file.

Clicking at any Mage: dispatchEvent call brings you to observer definition for corresponding event.

2. Class recognition for objects

You can use Alt+M (Option+M) to assign class for certain object that is defined through factory method. That is very useful for code completion.

3. Creating modules

Click Alt+M (Option+M) -> Create Module anywhere in a file to save time while creating Magento modules.

I hope this post will be useful for all Magento developers that use PhpStorm.
