You can run PHP Insights in your CI by defining a level you want to reach with the options
If the minimum level defined is not reached, the console will return an exit error code.
./vendor/bin/phpinsights --no-interaction --min-quality=80 --min-complexity=90 --min-architecture=75 --min-style=95 # Within Laravel php artisan insights --no-interaction --min-quality=80 --min-complexity=90 --min-architecture=75 --min-style=95
--no-interaction option is mandatory when it's launched in CI to avoid prompts.
All others are optional, so if you want to focus only on style, add the
--min-style and forget others.
Disable Security Check
In case you develop a library or a plugin, it could be compatible with a large panel of dependencies versions.
So you can launch your
composer update with
--prefer-lower flag to tests theses minimum version.
phpinsights returns an exit error code if security issues are found, you can disable this check by adding the
--disable-security-check option :
./vendor/bin/phpinsights --no-interaction --disable-security-check
Note : For a project inspection, you should never use this option to keep your project safe.
