Using relative paths in config does not work

See original GitHub issue

I try to use relative paths in the workspace configuration to set the settings for the following two values "settings": { "php-cs-fixer.executablePath": "./typo3/vendor/bin/php-cs-fixer", "php-cs-fixer.config": ".php_cs" .... When I use the full path it works. But as this project may be checked out to various folders it is not possible to enter the full path. I also tried to use “${workspaceFolder}” but it does not work.

Any hints why this doesnt work, or how to achieve this? Thanks

You could use the ${workspaceRoot} to get the absolute path to your root project then go into your vendor.

In my case I used : ${workspaceRoot}/vendor/bin/php-cs-fixer

I’m wondering why this is not the recommended way to do it. Because when we are working on multiple projects, the version can be different in every project.

In addition, since I used I need to be in the context of my project because otherwise ->registerCustomFixers(new PhpCsFixerCustomFixers\Fixers()) could not be resolved.

‘’’           const pattern = /^${workspace(Root|Folder)}/; ‘’’

workspaceRoot and workspaceFolder are the same value
