I am always not able to follow Netbeans default coding conventions like the following

Function should be N lines only

Method Length is N Lines (M allowed)

Warning: Do not Access Superglobal $_POST Array Directly

// Using this
$username = filter_input(INPUT_POST, 'username');

// Instead of this

And many more.

It seems really hard to follow all of the coding conventions. So, what can I achieve if I follow it 100 %?

  • functions should be N lines max, depends how big N is. The _POST array however, sounds sensible advice - what filter_input does will tell you why. – gbjbaanb Feb 15 '16 at 8:40
  • @gbjbaanb in netbeans the default is 20, so everytime my function passes that limit if warns me. – Cary Bondoc Feb 15 '16 at 8:51

    If you do not have your own coding standards in place, then the answer is YES. – BЈовић Feb 15 '16 at 9:15

If you do not have your own coding standards in place, then either write it, or adopt one. I do not know what netbeans coding standard is, so I can not say whether it is good or bad.

This answer explains why a coding standard is impotant, and as Uncle Bob said :

  1. After the first few iterations, get the team together to decide.

meaning that you should get a standard, and change it acording to the needs of your team.
