Phalcon Demo Application
We use modified Phalcon INVO Application to demonstrate basics of Codeception testing. We expect to implement as many features as possible to showcase the framework and its potential.
Please write us if you have any feedback.
The master branch will always contain the latest stable version. If you wish to check older versions or newer ones currently under development, please switch to the relevant branch.
- PHP >= 5.4
- Nginx Web Server with PHP-FPM enabled
- Latest stable Phalcon Framework release extension enabled
- MySQL >= 5.1.5
- Codeception >= 2.2
The Composer way (recommended)
Using Composer, you can create a new project, write this code on your terminal:
composer create-project codeception/phalcon-demo --prefer-dist <folder name>
After running this command, there should be an output, similar below:
Installing codeception/phalcon-demo (version) - Installing codeception/phalcon-demo (version) Created project in <folder name> Loading composer repositories with package information Updating dependencies (including require-dev) ... ... ... Writing lock file Generating autoload files Do you want to remove the existing VCS (.git, .svn..) history? [Y,n]? y
The Git way
Another way to fetch project by using
First you need to clone this repository:
git clone email@example.com:Codeception/phalcon-demo.git
Install composer in a common location or in your project:
curl -s http://getcomposer.org/installer | php
Then install dependencies:
php composer.phar install
A MySQL database is also bundled in this project. The connection to the database is required for several tests. You'll need to create the database and initialize schema.
You can create a database as follows:
echo 'CREATE DATABASE phalcon_demo CHARSET=utf8 COLLATE=utf8_unicode_ci' | mysql -u root
then initialize schema:
cat schemas/phalcon_demo.sql | mysql -u root phalcon_demo
For these tests we use the user
root without a password. You may need to change this in
You can override application config by creating
app/config/config.ini.dev (already gitignored).
Phalcon Demo Application uses Codeception functional, acceptance and unit tests.
First you need to re-generate base classes for all suites:
You can execute all test with
vendor/bin/codecept run # OR detailed output vendor/bin/codecept run --debug
