PhpStorm is built on top of the open-source IntelliJ Platform, which we've been developing and perfecting for over 15 years. Enjoy the fine-tuned, highly customizable experience it provides to fit your development workflow.


Intelligent coding assistance

PhpStorm is a PHP IDE that actually 'gets' your code. It supports PHP 5.3/5.4/5.5/5.6/7.0/7.1, provides on-the-fly error prevention, best autocompletion & code refactoring, zero config debugging, and an extended HTML, CSS, and JavaScript editor.

Smart PHP Code Editor

The IDE provides smart code completion, syntax highlighting, extended code formatting config, on-the-fly error checking, code folding, supports language mixtures and more. Automated refactorings that treat your code with care, helping to make global project settings easily and safely.

Code Quality Analysis

Hundreds of code inspections verify your code as you type and inspect the whole project for possible errors or code smells. Quick-fixes for most inspections make it easy to fix or improve the code instantly. Alt+Enter shows appropriate options for each inspection.

Easy Code Navigation & Search

PhpStorm helps you get around your code more efficiently and save time when working with large projects. Jump to a method, function or variable definition in just one click, or search for its usages.


Debugging, Testing and Profiling


Zero-config debugging makes it really easy to debug your PHP applications. Besides, PhpStorm provides numerous options for debugging your PHP code with Visual Debugger, so you can: inspect variables and user-defined watches, set breakpoints and evaluate an expression in runtime, debug remote applications, debug a page in multiple sessions simultaneously, and more.


You can develop PHPUnit tests right in PhpStorm and run them instantly from a directory, file or class, by using the context menu options. Code Coverage from PHPUnit shows how much of your code is covered with tests.


You can profile your applications with Xdebug or Zend Debugger and check aggregated reports in PhpStorm.


HTML/CSS/JavaScript Editor


All the cutting edge web development technologies are supported including HTML5, CSS, SASS/SCSS, LESS, CoffeeScript, Jade/Pug, etc. Live Edit gives you an opportunity to see all the changes instantly in the browser without refreshing the page.


The smartest JavaScript Editor is bundled with the IDE, offering code completion, validation and quick fixes, refactorings, JSDoc type annotations support, debugging and unit testing, support for Frameworks, and more.

New Technologies

PhpStorm provides a streamlined experience for the full development cycle with new languages such as TypeScript, CoffeeScript, and Dart.


Development Environment

Databases & SQL

PhpStorm provides tools and code assistance features for working with databases and SQL in your projects. Connect to databases, edit schemas and table data, run queries, and even analyze schemas with UML diagrams. SQL code can be injected to other languages or edited in SQL Editor, with syntax highlighting, smart code completion, on-the-fly code analysis, code formatting and navigation available.

Other Features

Perform many routine tasks right from the IDE with support for Vagrant support, Docker, Composer, git, SVN, Mercurial, and more.

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
