This was how I set up PHPUnit with my Zend Framework application. I’m very new to testing and have never set it up before.
- Need to get PHPunit installed on the Apple Mac
Try typing this in the command line (btw I prefer iTerm over the built in terminal).
I tried a few different ways to install php, I’m not sure which one eventually installed it, but…. yeah I know sounds dumb, but when you try a bunch of different ways and then it ‘just starts working’ you lose track which way actually fixed it. Besides it was two weeks ago, I can’t remember that far back. I do know that one of the has Xdebug turned on to generate the nice reports of code coverage.
For example. ` Shane:tests shane$ whereis phpunit /usr/bin/phpunit Shane:tests shane$ phpunit –version PHPUnit 3.4.6 by Sebastian Bergmann.
Shane:tests shane$ `
- Now setup your environment. This is the hard part, since everyone does it different. The trouble is figuring out which pieces need to go where and why.
This will create a neat little tree of your folder structure
ls -R | grep ":$" | sed -e 's/:$//' -e 's/[^-][^\/]*\//--/g' -e 's/^/ /' -e 's/-/|/'
So I have this structure for my application
|-application |---configs |---controllers |---models |-----DbTable |---views |-----helpers |-----scripts |-------error |-------index |-library |-public |-tests |---application |-----controllers |-----models |---library |---log |-----report
Notice the “test” folder with subfolders? Good.
We now have the necessary folder, here are files
tests/phpunit.xml ` ./
<filter> <whitelist> <directory suffix=".php">../library/</directory> <directory suffix=".php">../application/</directory> <exclude> <directory suffix=".phtml">../application/</directory> </exclude> </whitelist> </filter> <logging> <log type="coverage-html" target="./log/report" charset="UTF-8" yui="true" highlight="true" lowUpperBound="50" highLowerBound="80"/> <log type="testdox-html" target="./log/testdox.html" /> </logging>
Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org
