When I first started writing CiviCRM extensions it quickly became clear that there were a lot of old parts to CiviCRM's core code which deserved some love. I know that CiviCRM only has a small development team, and so I started searching for quick-win code changes that I could contribute back to the CiviCRM codebase in order to improve the quality and developer experience for everyone. I want to share the PHPStan configuration that I have been using to identify poor-quality (and in some cases buggy) code within the CiviCRM core codebase.

At our meetup last week, Oliver Gibson spoke about the work Northbridge Digital has been doing to recreate the standard CiviCRM reports using SearchKit.

These reports are available as an extension which is still in development. The aim is to provide a bank of example reports that users can use and adapt. These will be a useful starting point for users to create their own reports.

A while back I did a lot of cleanup and bug fixing on the Core Import code. This clean-up facilitated some extra features to be added in a core extension - ‘civi-import’ which is in 5.55.
