I have been working quite a bit with Silverstripe recently. It is a very interesting CMS with a nice programming interface. Compared to CMS’s like Drupal and wordpress, however, the comunity is small and I’ve been doing my bit to help things along. Whith this in mind I have created some PHP_Codesniffer rules for the Silverstripe coding standards. In my opinion there is no point in having coding standards if there is not an automated way of checking adherence to them and php code sniffer the best tool and integrates well with continuos integration environments.
The sniffs are located on github here.
