Auto update file header?

So after switching to PHPStorm from Sublime Text I am very happy with everything, except for one plugin I can't seem to find anything similar for PHPStorm.

 

What i'm looking for is something that will automatically update the header in files, specficially the date the file was last edited.

 

Here's a Sublime Text plugin:

https://github.com/shiyanhui/FileHeader

 

I've looked at Live Templates, and standard templates, but that only works for new files and doens't update when the file is saved.  My first thought was to use a file watcher to update the last modified time, but can't seem to figure it out.

 

Any suggestions, thoughts, ideas, etc??  Thanks guys!!

Hello!

 

there is no way to do this currently... Please vote for http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-60148

Normally this case is handled by a version control system when it has  keyword substitution feature (VCS will replace special tags with  user/time when you commit the code).

Automatically -- no.

 

But you could use Referencer plugin to quickly (but manually) insert/update timestamp.
