PHP code source is a dataset waiting for a query language. And this language is static analysis. Initially, it finds bugs in the code, prepare for PHP 8.0 compatibility and help taming your technical debt. Then, as experience grows, it provides higher level insights, like suggesting typehint for methods and properties, or recommend modernising code that is still using this old deprecated PHP 4. And finally, it provide readability scores and semantic trap that bog down the ease of use in the code.
The Exakat engine delivers a complete view over your code. During this quick introduction, we’ll review results from real code, and understand how exakat brings more than simple static analysis. It’s a life compagnon to know your code.
