🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #30 - Key Promoter X Sometimes we fall into a habit of using the mouse for something, where we could have used a shortcut. Key Promoter X is a plugin that tells of such situations. It reminds you by showing the shortcut you should use instead.
🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #29 - Run Tests Another cool feature using the "Run Anything" prompt and custom "Run configurations" to run specific tests like unit, feature, or all. Especially being able to run "all test" is something I missed an easy solution for a long time. 😍
🧪 PhpStorm Tips & Tricks 28 - Run Tasks We often tend to run tasks from within the Terminal. That's fine, but what I prefer is to run them through "Run Anything". This way I don't have to open up the Terminal and I have one place to check my running tasks.
🧪 PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #27 - Toggle Search Scope I hope you already know your shortcuts for specific searches. ( files, classes, etc.) One little trick here is if you press the shortcut again it toggles the scope of the search between "Project Files" and "All Files" 🔍

🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #25 - Run Anything The "Run Anything" prompt can be used to quickly run tasks like from npm/Yarn, but did you know that you can run Artisan calls too? 🤩 Pretty handy for triggering a command without opening the terminal.
🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #21 - Open in split mode With PhpStorm 2020.3 you are able to open files directly in split mode. The shortcut works from within the sidebar, but also from the other windows like "recent files" which I really love. PS: default shortcut is "shift+enter"

🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #24 - Toggle Plugin I need to activate/deactivate some PhpStorm plugins more often. Gladly I can do that also through the global search. Be aware, some plugins require a restart.
🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #23 - Presentation Assistant The Presentation Assistant is great to show the shortcuts you are using while talks or presentations. By default it includes the default keys. But you can change that to show the ones you have actually set 👍
🧪 #PhpStorm Tips & Tricks #20 - Find Actions Actions are commands + shortcuts in PhpStorm. With the action search, you can easily trigger features without knowing shortcuts. 💡Even better: If you use an action a lot, just assign a shortcut right from the search with alt+enter.
