Magento uses the EQP Coding Standard tool for checking the coding standard of a module.https://github.com/magento/marketplace-eqp

Magento a tool used basically using the PHP_CodeSniffer tool.

If you want to run EQP Coding Standard on your local system, then follow the steps:

Go to your Magento root directory, and install this too using composer: composer create-project --repository=https://repo.magento.com magento/marketplace-eqp Magento-coding-standard

Then go to this tool directly using cd magento-coding-standard

run Composer update command composer install which will update module dependency packages. Also, set config path specific PHP version set paths to php binary dir

vendor/bin/phpcs --config-set php7.0_path /path/to/your/php7

After that, you can use the below command for the checkout code start of your module from the Magento-coding-standard folder

php vendor/bin/phpcs /path/to/your/extension --standard=MEQP2

use MEQP2 for magento2 extension.


php vendor/bin/phpcs /var/www/html/MagentoProkect/app/code/DevAmitbera/CustomModule --standard=MEQP2 --extensions=php,phtml

Here I give the full path of my extension /var/www/html/MagentoProkect/app/code/DevAmitbera/CustomModule

4.1. If you use windows and face some path that must be translated related warning in the command line then try the below solution. Install Cygwin console from https://cygwin.com and then go to the Magento-coding-standard directory and run the below command.

vendor/bin/phpcs F:/xampp/htdocs/magento2/app/code/DevAmitbera/CustomModule --standard=MEQP2 --severity=10 --extensions=php,phtml

After That, I have run the code sniffer auto fixer command which is a basic code standards issue.

php vendor/bin/phpcbf /path/to/your/extension -extensions=php,phtml --standard=MEQP2


  php vendor/bin/phpcbf /var/www/html/app/code/DevAmitbera/CustomModule --standard=MEQP2 --extensions=php,phtml

After re-run Step 4 command for checking out the rest of errors which you need to fix yourself manually.

  • I follow the same steps it is still not showing Magento 2 or MEQP2 option that will validate Magento 2 plugins. Feb 10 at 14:00
  • Try this command make sure you update your vendor and module name--> vendor/bin/phpcs --report=xml --report-file=MEQP.xml app/code/Vendor/ModuleName --standard=Magento2 --severity=10 -p Feb 11 at 15:44
