Refactoring #7: Upping the coding style game in PHP using Rector

Upgrades I absolutely love

We’ll start with some top-notch improvements that I think we should apply to every PHP project.

New line after statement

Separate multiple use statements

Simplify quote escaping

Wrap variables in curly braces

Convert switch to if-else

Match catch exceptions with their types

Inherited method same visibility as parent

Upgrades I have mixed feelings for

Static arrow functions and closures

Convert post increments to pre increments

Convert inline variables to sprintfs
