TypoScript support for PHPStorm, Webstorm and IntelliJ

To support the daily work with the languages TypoScript and TypoScript for Neos, we created this plugin for the popular IntelliJ IDEs - IntelliJ IDEA, PHPStorm and Webstorm - from Jetbrains. Functions are included for both integrators and programmers that help optimize and reduce maintenance, development time, and sources of error.

The Features

Syntax Highlighting / Code Folding

With the help of the TypoScript plugin the IntelliJ IDEs are able to recognize TypoScript as a language and to highlight the syntactic peculiarities in color. Code structures can be recognized faster, as you are used to with other languages.

Related code blocks can also be collapsed to provide a better overview within a TS file.

Auto-completion with multi-file support

The TypoScript plugin recognizes objects, variables and other constructs even across file boundaries and is thus able to offer helpful suggestions for auto-completion. The auto-complete menu can be consulted at any time by pressing Alt + Space.

Quick Documentation

With the key combination Ctrl + Q (Ctrl + J under OSX), the documentation for the symbol at the current cursor position can be called up in a popup window at any time. This way, details about e.g. the use of certain objects can be looked up quickly without leaving the IDE.

Structure Tree and Breadcrumbs

To get a better overview of the structure of the TypoScript code, the nesting depth of the current cursor position is displayed in a breadcrumb view above the code. In addition, the code structure can be viewed at any time via the structure tree.

Automatic error detection

In order to prevent annoying typos and syntax errors, formal errors are recognized during writing and visualized accordingly.

Open included files with one click

No more annoying searching through the file tree - included files are only one click away. With the key combination Ctrl + Click you can jump directly to the referenced TypoScript files at any time.
