Crystal Clear app package utilities.png PhanSearch
Description Tool for MediaWiki developers (and extensions and skins developers) to explore the PHP function calls. It is similar to CodeSearch (explore the MediaWiki codebase) but with a more specific use case, and a different technology stack (this tool uses the static analysis tool Phan instead of a full-text search). To search PHP function calls, there are no false positives compared to CodeSearch, but there could be false negatives.
