Laravel on Twitter: “Announcement: Laravel 5.1 will be the first Laravel LTS release in the framework’s history.”

PHPStorm 8 is out!

You can check the latest changes here: http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/whatsnew/

I really like these things: PHP 5.6, PSR-4, Behat and AngularJS are supported, there is a new JavaScript and Node.js tracing tool called Spy-js, Multiple Carets and Selections is a neat feature that I think I’ve seen in SublimeText only so far, Work with individual files without creating a project – I need that from time to time, and so on..

As a whole this is a big update that makes the software even more powerful and the only one you need for development.

Find files with the same name in PHPStorm

Just happenned to need a file with the same name but in different subdirs and I needed all occurences. This comes from an old style of developing on a now very busy site and one thing is to continue with the copy/paste or spend a good amount of time replacing the old logic. For now I have minutes to finish and so I started looking at one of the files for a pattern to search as the search is something I use very often and am used to it.

I didn’t pay attention to the Navigation menu in PHPStorm and checked File and Edit then decided to google about my problem and found this one:

Just open Navigate -> File.. and search for the file by its name. Then click the pin button to have it like a regular search result! 🙂
