PHP linter config with -l in Notepad++
Did I miss something?
For 2 years now, when writing code and after saving the php scripts with that code, I dig for particular folder full of a growing number of .bat file scripts each containing a windows command that runs php linter against the aforementioned PHP scripts to find PHP syntax errors --one script at a time -one syntax error at a time. The scripts take only a minute or two but after years it starts to annoy. Yes I searched and tried many suggestions but no dice. If I missed something plain to see just tell me. Funny thing is I had it working years ago. Can’t recall what I did.
I tried configuring php linter using the plugin NppExec. No dice. The -l option prints a syntax error message the moment you type it, right? If you have it config’ed and working a screenshot with the precise config syntax would help.
A CMD script per php file DOS windows etc etc -see above post
Now It is easier for me to lint (syntax check PHP using nppexec. Hit F6, smack a couple arrows keys then slam down the the Enter key and the error displays at the bottom of notepad++ Thx Peter. You didn’t have much detail but you implied it easy. IT was.
I had php linter installed and configured in notepad++ years ago such that the instant you inserted a typo, php flashed the syntax error in the console at the bottom without having to save the file or punch a single button. Anybody know how I got that working.??
If not, how can I assign a single button to lint a php sciript? A trivial issue? After repeating a trivial task a million times it might annoy you.

THAT seems ambitious. I’d think that unless something was super-highly integrated, that it would be taking a brute force method of linting the entire file on every keystroke/cut/paste/delete.
I just have my Python syntax checker running on every save; no extra keystroke involved because saving often is good (and so is syntax checking). :-)
Mine runs via a PythonScript using that plugin. You could consider that to invoke what you need, or if you’re not a big fan of Python, maybe the NppExec plugin meets your need better.
@alan-kilborn Good advice. It’s good enough the way it is
