PHP Coding Standard

There are few points need to be followed while coding in PHP.

  • Proper Indenting and line space
  • Control statements should have one space between the control keyword and opening parenthesis, to distinguish them from function calls.
  • You are strongly encouraged to always use curly braces even in situations where they are technically optional.
  • Code should be properly commented using C style comments (/* */) and standard C++ comments (//) are both fine. Its increase the readability.
  • Always use <?php ?> to delimit PHP code, not the <? ?> shorthand.
  • There should be only one statement per line unless it will create a mess.
  • Block of declarations should be aligned.
  • Proper Identifier naming convention is necessary.
