Assert and Should

Prefer a video introduction?

This project provides two wrappers (you can add more) around PHPUnit's assertion library. For example, rather than typing:

$this->assertEquals(4, 2 + 2);

You can instead do:

Assert::equals(4, 2 + 2);

# or
Should::equal(4, 2 + 2);

To allow for more readability, when using Should, you may prepend be or have, like so:

Should::beTrue(true);
Should::haveCount(2, ['a', 'b']);

Aliases

Additionally, you can register your own aliases.

Should::getInstance()->registerAliases([
	'beCakesAndPies' => 'assertTrue'
]);

# or

Assert::getInstance()->registerAliases([
	'eq' => 'assertEquals'
]);

Now, you can use Should::beCakesAndPies and Assert::eq in your tests, and they will map to assertTrue and assertEquals, respectively.

Installation

Install these helpers through Composer. To your composer.json file, add:

{
	"require-dev": {
		"way/phpunit-wrappers": "dev-master"
	}
}

Next, as always, run a composer install or composer update for development.

composer install --dev

That command will pull in those clases under the Way\Tests namespace.

Next, within your test file, use your desired assertion wrapper (or both).

<?php

use Way\Tests\Should;

class DemoTest extends PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase {
	public function testItWorks()
	{
		Should::beTrue(true);
	}
}

If you wish, you can optionally alias Should to something shorter, such as S.

use Way\Tests\Should as S;

This would allow for S::beTrue(). It's an option, but I prefer to stick with the more readable Should.

And that's it! Here's a few examples:

<?php

use Way\Tests\Should;
use Way\Tests\Assert;

class DemoTest extends PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase {
	public function testItWorks()
	{
		Should::beTrue(true);
		Assert::true(true);

		Should::equal(4, 2 + 2);
		Assert::equals(4, 2 + 2);

		Should::beGreaterThan(20, 21);
		Assert::greaterThan(20, 21);

		Should::contain('Joe', ['John', 'Joe']);
		Should::have('Joe', ['John', 'Joe']);
		Assert::has('Joe', ['John', 'Joe']);
		Assert::has('Joe', 'Joey');

		Should::haveCount(2, ['1', '2']);
		Assert::count(2, ['1', '2']);
	}
}

Don't forget to include Composer's autoloader into your project somewhere: require_once 'vendor/autoload.php'. Alternatively, you can specify a bootstrap option when running PHPUnit: phpunit --bootstrap vendor/autoload.php --colors SomeTest.php

Remember: these are simple wrappers around PHPUnit's assertions. Refer to the sidebar here for a full list.
