You can take control of your base code with PhpStorm, thanks to the hundreds of inspections that are in charge of checking the code while you write it, analyzing your project as a whole. Like this, you can write clean, error-free code that is very easy to maintain.
With Smarty and Twig template editing, you can see the highlighted syntax errors, automatically insert paired keys, feeds, closing tags, among other features. The system control integration of PhpStorm versions lets you carry out routine tasks directly in the IDE, and is completely compatible with remote installation, database, composing, and many other tools.
