Release of the Theme Sniffer plugin

After a long time of refactoring and improving the plugin, the Theme Review team is proud to announce that we’ve released the Theme Sniffer plugin to the wordpress.org plugin repository.

Theme Sniffer is a plugin utilising custom sniffs for PHP_CodeSniffer that statically analyses your theme and ensures that it adheres to WordPress coding conventions, as well as checking your code against PHP version compatibility.

Themes are not required to pass the Theme Sniffer scan without warnings or errors to be included in the theme directory but all reviewers are encouraged to use this plugin to help them review themes quicker.

The plugin is actively developed on Github, so if you wish to contribute you can start there. Also, if you find any issue with the plugin, feel free to open an issue on the repository.

You can find an entry in the handbook about the usage and some clarification regarding the sniff results interpretation.
