Build Status Build Status Version Visual Studio Marketplace Ratings

Open command palette <kbd>F1</kbd> and select Extensions: Install Extension, then search for phpfmt.

<kbd>F1</kbd> -> phpfmt: Format This File

or keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + I which is Visual Studio Code default formatter shortcut

or right mouse context menu Format Document or Format Selection

Format On Save

Respects editor.formatOnSave setting.

You can turn off format-on-save on a per-language basis by scoping the setting:

// Set the default
"editor.formatOnSave": false,
// Enable per-language
"[php]": {
    "editor.formatOnSave": true


Q: How to use phpfmt.php_bin with spaces such as C:\Program Files\php\php.exe ?
A: Wrap your path with quotes like:

  "phpfmt.php_bin": "\"C:\\Program Files\\php\\php.exe\""

It is recommended to add the directory of the php.exe to the PATH environment variable on Windows.
If it still not working, refer to #1 and Stack Overflow Related.

Q: How use tabs instead of spaces with PSR2 enabled ?
A: For PSR2, code MUST use 4 spaces for indenting, not tabs. But if you like PSR2, and do not like 4 spaces for indentation, add following configuration:

  "phpfmt.passes": [
  "phpfmt.exclude": [
  "phpfmt.psr2": false

Q: Is fmt.phar (phpfmt itself) still maintained ?
A: Since phpfmt has no maintainers, only Serious bugs will be fixed.
