- msgpack php extension
- pcntl php extension
Configuring on macOS
Step 1: Install PHP via brew
As the stock PHP bundled with macOS does not include pcntl, we install a build of php from homebrew which comes with pcntl preinstalled.
$ brew install php
Make sure the php path is updated:
$ which php
# /usr/local/bin/php << expected output1
Step 2: Install msgpack php extension via pecl
If you install php via brew, pecl should also come pre-installed:
$ pecl install msgpack
Confirm msgpack is install by running
$ php -m
and make sure
msgpack is displayed on the output
Step 3: Install phpcd
Follow the installation instructions on the Github repo. Install using your favorite plugin manager and add the necessary configs to your vimrc file.
If it's not working, you might need to manually run
composer install in the phpcd.vim directory...
Bonus: Laravel Facades support
If you have a Laravel project, you could have facades autocompletion support with the Laravel IDE Helper composer package. Refer to this issue to set it up.
