JetBrains Blog: Docker Support in PhpStorm


In this recent postto the JetBrains blog they show how to set up and configure the Docker support the latest version includes built in to the IDE.

Dockeris an open platform for building, shipping and running distributed applications. It gives programmers, development teams and operations engineers the common toolbox they need to take advantage of the distributed and networked nature of modern applications.

With the new Docker integration pluginfor PhpStorm, you can add Docker support to existing projects, view logs, manage Docker containers, and debug PHP web applications from right inside PhpStorm.

They help you get the integration plugin installed and show you where the machine should be located and how to set it up under PHPStorm's deployment options. Next up they include the steps for getting the Docker machine up and running (again, inside the IDE) and managing the containers related to the machine.
