As of 31st December, 2020, PHP Intelephense plugin is not working as intended by default when installed in Visual Studio Code Insider Edition 1.53 which is updated to support Apple Silicon. It is way faster than its stable counterpart which is still running on Rosetta 2.

But, there is a quick fix.

Step 1: Install Node.js if not already. Homebrew is your best bet.

Step 2: Find your node path. Open terminal and type which node. Copy the result.

Step 3: Open the extension settings of PHP Intelliphense. Find Intelliphense: Runtime setting and paste your node path.

That’s it! :)

If you have just got your Apple M1 MacBook or the Mac Mini, this is just a reminder that Homebrew doesn’t support the new ARM chip (as at 29 Nov 2020). But, there is a workaround.

Go to Finder > Applications > Utilities folder. Right click on Terminal and duplicate it. Rename the duplicate to something meaningful such as “Legacy Terminal”, “Rosetta Terminal” etc.

Now right click on the duplicated terminal app and click Get Info. Then select Open using Rosetta. This will allow the terminal to run as an x86 app.

Now open the new Terminal window to continue installing homebrew and homebrew apps. Confirmed working for installing php@7.4, mysql@5.7, Laravel Valet dependencies and so on.

If you encounter an annoyingly slow or laggy Visual Studio Code terminal command executions on macOS Big Sur, you are not alone.

Fix it by entering the following command in your terminal:

codesign --remove-signature /Applications/Visual\ Studio\\ Helper\ \(Renderer\).app

Restart Visual Studio code.
