What are the list of useful magento2 development tools?
What are the top phpstorm useful plugins for magento2 development?
1) PHPStorm with XDebug:
PHPStorm is my favorite IDE. It is an advanced IDE for PHP developers.
Many developers still use only
die to debug the system. From my experience, these techniques are not powerful. They possibility will break the application.
Magento 2 is a huge system. We should try with XDebug. With XDebug, we can see how the system works, why the exception occurs.
2) PHPStorm plugins for Magento 2 development:
There are some useful PHPStorm plugins. I used two free Plugins: Magento2 and MaGinto.
There is a good paid Plugin: Magicento. You also can try.
for code standard, use PHPMD & PHPCS
I love PHP Inspections, probably the best plugin out there for PHPStorm.
Here are my top 5 plugins for PHPStorm:
PHP Inspections (EA Extended)
Framework Support Plugin (Symfony)
Key Promoter X
JetBrains Toolbox App
I've made a video showing the possibilities of each plugin: https://youtu.be/h18-RtRqHZY
