This is a kind of follow-up to my recent article on Essential Sublime Text 3 Plugins for PHP Developers to explain how to install and configure Sublime-phpcs for the CakePHP code standard. Although I’m describing how to configure phpcs specifically for Cake it will hopefully be of use to anyone wanting to get started with phpcs in Sublime Text and start developing better code.

Sublime Text has got to be one of the most popular text editors out there for coding. Although still in beta, Sublime Text 3 is a relatively stable and very usable. I’ve personally been successfully using it for over 2 years now both at work and at home. It’s sophisticated, lightweight and easy to use. It also works on all the major platforms: Windows, OSX and Linux.

I’ve released a little something called Awesome Textpattern on GitHub today and just wanted to introduce it and explain the idea/motivation behind it.
Package managers like Composer for PHP and NPM for Node have become essential tools for simplifying a developer’s life. A package manager is a tool for keeping track of what you’ve installed, as well as installing and upgrading packages. They also check for dependencies and compatibility. Bower is a package manager for the web.
