My tools in backend development include the scripting language PHP, the package manager Composer, some established frameworks like Flow, Laravel and Symfony, as well as the enterprise search systems Apache Solr and the ELK stack.

The quality and security of the source code has a very high priority at TYPONiels and so I use various mechanisms and quality gates during development to ensure and increase the code quality. Currently I use:

  • Development usually according to OOP principles, if reasonable TDD approach.
  • Unit tests with PHPUnit, functional tests with Codeception
  • Static code analysis with PHPStan/PhpMetrics/PHP Mess Detector
  • Quality gates with SonarQub
  • Securing coding styles with PHP CodeSniffer (Linter)
  • Building backward compatible versions with Rector PHP

These steps are performed locally during development as well as during release in Gitlab CI and may vary slightly depending on the project structure.
