public function __construct(EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory, Config $eavConfig)
 {
 $this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;
 $this->eavConfig = $eavConfig;

public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)

 \Magento\Customer\Model\Customer::ENTITY,
 'phpcodez_attribute',
 [
 'type' => 'varchar',
 'label' => 'PHPCodez Rating',
