How does that help with extension writing?
I'm wondering the same...
Sorry, haven't been around for a while, I saw XAMPP and MAMP listed to quickly have a local developement server. Vagrant will allow you to do the same. Apologies for being unclear.

Does anyone know if there exists a PHPBB coding standard sniff library for PHP-Code Sniffer? I've created my own, but it's still missing some things.

if you're converting a Mod to an extension, use phpStorm. It costs abit but you can use it free for 30 days.

It automatically tells you what functions are deprecated.

For example request_var is marked here :

because it's marked as deprecated in the function itself.

Alright we need to infuse some real (free) text editors into this then ;)
Sublime Text - All platforms
Atom - All platforms, by GitHub
Sublime Text is not free, but costs $70 per user. I will try Atom when v1.0 comes out.
Geany also runs on many platforms: Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, MacOS X, AIX v5.3, Solaris Express and Windows (Windows with a few limitations).
Sublime text is WinRar free :)...

If you're using Sourcetree, don't upgrade to 1.8 just yet. it's a mess.

Just wrote a small bash script that outputs a statistic for language files.

Basically you supply language file with and an extension root directory and it will output statistics of how many times given language key is used. It's simple and ugly, but it does what it is supposed to ...

P.S.: Just got the idea to add key to show only unused keys ... just not now.
For list of all my extensions go to https://github.com/satanasov
If you want custom functions in some of my products - PM me and we will discuss it.

O'reilly added a section with free programming E-books. the only catch is that you have to give your email address. But there's really alot to choose from : http://www.oreilly.com/programming/free/

No endorsement of PhpStorm as an editor? It's practically required to get an extension approved as it is hard to find an editor that checks references, finds uninitialized or unused variables. It does cost money, however.
Get the latest versions of my Digests and Smartfeed mods and extensions.
Need phpBB services or a phpBB consultant? I offer most phpBB services.
