Editorconfig (.editorconfig)

The .editorconfig file is used to define and maintain consistent coding styles between different editors and IDEs.

User dictionaries (dictionary.dic)

User dictionaries are files that contain a list of words that are used in the application. This allows us to enable spell-checking in IDEs without having many false positives.

We typically include an alphabetically sorted wordlist file named dictionary.dic. This file is stored in the root of the repository.

Adding the custom dictionary to PhpStorm:

  • Settings → Editor → Natural Languages → Spelling
  • Add dictionary.dic to the list of custom dictionaries

To sort the dictionary file alphabetically, use the following command:

cat dictionary.dic | sort -f | tee dictionary.dic
