One of the it’s features is the ability define External Tools and call them when needed.
With PhpStorm open, go to PhpStorm > Preferences menu (mac) File > Settings (win) and in the window that popups, search and click on External Tools on the left side.
On the bottom right (mac) top right (win), you can see some buttons, click on the plus
A window popups with some command configuration stuff to add.
All the items in the popup are pretty self explanatory, so we are going to try to fill some of them.
After this we can click OK, and close the preferences window.
Now if you take a look at the Tools menu you might have something like this.
If you click on PHP Version, the terminal window will open and show you something like this.
This is a very simple example, but you can start being very creative with these commands. For example people who use Symfony2 many times have to clear the app/console cache or other stuff, so let’s going to create some shortcut’s.
Get creative :)
