We help successful and growing companies to get the most of the code they already have.
Reduce maintenance cost, make feature delivery cheaper
and turn legacy code into sustainable code.
* Based on average data from 37 projects.
90% of problems you'll face are new to you.
We've already seen them and know exactly how to solve them quickly, efficiently and effectively.
Improves your code quality code to the highest possible level. The knowledge is embedded in the Rector rules and sets. All you have to do is to run and apply them to your code base.
As they say: the first upgrade is the hardest. Once you get past PHP 8.0 and have a full-blown Rector CI setup, the time to upgrade to the latest PHP drops to hours.
How do you tackle technical debt in a project with 10,000 files? One by one? With Rector, the size doesn't matter, and removing technical debt is a clear and confident process.
"Thanks to Rector, we were able to quite simply refactor the core of our API, which saved a lot of work that our developers would otherwise have to do manually."
"I'm extremely pleased with the progress we are making. It's really come a long way."
"From upgrading our legacy projects and improving team's productivity, to making code review easier and reliable, Rector is in the center within our PHP ecosystem."
Yes, Rector handles upgrades from PHP 5.3 up to PHP 8.2.
No, we can help you with PHP upgrades only.
Every project is different. The project size, code quality, test coverage, type coverage and CI setup affect the project upgrade duration. But to give you a rough idea, most project upgrades we handle take between 6 and 12 months.
First, we do an intro analysis of your project that takes 3 weeks. After that, we can jump right into the upgrade work itself.
No. Our goal is not to just simply change the value in
composer.json to the latest PHP. We improve your code quality to the highest possible level, we improve test coverage, type coverage and get PHPStan to level 8. We upgrade your CI to catch most bugs long before merge.
When we finish, you'll have Rector in your CI setup working seamlessly. Your next PHP upgrade will be a matter of changing a single line in the configuration that you can handle yourself.
We know the business must grow. Stopping development, even for a month, would slow down the project and give the competition a huge advantage.
That's why we work in parallel to your project. Our work flows standalone along with your business development. Your team can safely develop features as we slowly and safely upgrade your code.
Yes, that's a field where Rector really shines. The PHP frameworks are very similar to each other; they use the MVC pattern. The framework migration is a matter of writing 30-50 custom Rector rules. We have deep experience with that.
Doing upgrades effectively and with confidence takes years of experience with dozens of project.
Our code changes are small, isolated and to the point. We create minimalistic pull-requests with 1 change, and send it for a review and you merge it the same or next day. That way your project will gain value every day.
