Better PHPUnit

Demo GIF

Run a test method:

  • Place your cursor in/on the method you want to run
  • Open the command menu: cmd+shift+p
  • Select: Better PHPUnit: run

Run a test file:

  • Place your cursor on/above the class declaration line
  • Open the command menu: cmd+shift+p
  • Select: Better PHPUnit: run

Run the entire suite:

  • Open the command menu: cmd+shift+p
  • Select: Better PHPUnit: run suite

Run the previous test:

  • Open the command menu: cmd+shift+p
  • Select: Better PHPUnit: run previous

Features:

  • Color output!
  • Run individual methods by placing your cursor anywhere in/on the method
  • Test failures are displayed in the "Problems" panel for quick access

Note: this plugin registers "tasks" to run phpunit, not a command like other extensions. This makes it possible to leverage the problem output and color terminal.

Keybindings:

{
    "key": "cmd+k cmd+r",
    "command": "better-phpunit.run"
},
{
    "key": "cmd+k cmd+p",
    "command": "better-phpunit.run-previous"
}

Config:

{
    "better-phpunit.commandSuffix": null, // This string will be appended to the phpunit command, it's a great place to add flags like '--stop-on-failure'
    "better-phpunit.phpunitBinary": null // A custom phpunit binary. Ex: 'phpunit', '/usr/local/bin/phpunit'
}

Running tests over ssh (For VMs like Laravel Homestead):

{
    "better-phpunit.ssh.enable": true,
    "better-phpunit.ssh.paths": {
        "/your/local/path": "/your/remote/path"
    },
    "better-phpunit.ssh.user": "user",
    "better-phpunit.ssh.host": "host",
    "better-phpunit.ssh.port": "22"
    "better-phpunit.ssh.binary": "putty -ssh"
}

Running tests in already running Docker containers:

{
    "better-phpunit.docker.enable": true,
    "better-phpunit.docker.command": "docker exec container-name",
    "better-phpunit.docker.paths": {
        "/your/local/path": "/your/remote/path"
    },
}

Running tests with Docker Compose, starting up a service and removing the container when finished:

{
    "better-phpunit.docker.enable": true,
    "better-phpunit.docker.command": "docker-compose run --rm service-name",
    "better-phpunit.docker.paths": {
        "/your/local/path": "/your/remote/path"
    },
}

Wish List:

  • Handling PHP fatal and parser errors
  • A sidebar panel for managing errors
  • Re-run failures
