Bugsnag monitors application stability, so you can make data-driven decisions on whether you should be building new features, or fixing bugs. Learn more.

Last week I tweeted a poll with the question "Which PHP static analysis tools do you regularly use?". These are the results:



My interest was mostly because I'm working on a book chapter which includes some static analysis content, and there are a couple of these tools that I include in my own builds, but I don't do much with the output of them. However I didn't want to drop anything from the chapter if it was actually a valuable tool and I was just missing the point - pretty much all the tools got a good number of votes though, so I'll be covering all of the above. It does look as if phploc has less of a following, however it's one of my favourite tools so it gets a mention anyway!
