Dries Buytaert recently shared insights into automating code checks within the Drupal environment using Git pre-commit hooks. Through his digital garden, Buytaert elucidates the value of pre-commit hooks in streamlining the development process by automating essential checks and tasks for each commit. He emphasizes the automation of code linting and static code analysis, leveraging tools such as phpcbf and phpstan to ensure code quality and adherence to best practices. Additionally, Buytaert provides a detailed script for implementing pre-commit hooks, consisting of commands to execute phpcbf for code beautifying and phpstan for static code analysis. Notably, he recommends using the drupal/core-dev package to conveniently install these tools within the Drupal ecosystem.
