Codeception MailCatcher Module

Build Status

This module will let you test emails that are sent during your Codeception acceptance tests. It depends upon you having MailCatcher installed on your development server.

It was inspired by the Codeception blog post: Testing Email in PHP. It is currently very simple. Send a pull request or file an issue if you have ideas for more features.

Installation

  1. Add the package to your composer.json:

    {
        "require-dev": {
            "codeception/codeception": "*",
            "captbaritone/mailcatcher-codeception-module": "1.*"
        }
    }
  2. Run composer update

  3. Configure your project to actually send emails through smtp://127.0.0.1:1025 in the test environment

  4. Enable the module in your acceptance.suite.yml:

    modules:
        enabled:
            - MailCatcher
        config:
            MailCatcher:
                url: 'http://127.0.0.1'
                port: '1080'

Optional Configuration

If you need to specify some special options (e.g. SSL verification or authentication headers), you can set all of the allowed Guzzle request options:

class_name: WebGuy
modules:
    enabled:
        - MailCatcher
    config:
        MailCatcher:
            url: 'http://127.0.0.1'
            port: '1080'
            guzzleRequestOptions:
                verify: false
                debug: true
                version: 1.0

Example Usage

<?php

$I->wantTo('Get a password reset email');

// Clear old emails from MailCatcher
$I->resetEmails();

// Reset password
$I->amOnPage('forgotPassword.php');
$I->fillField("input[name='email']", 'user@example.com');
$I->click('Submit');
$I->see('Please check your inbox');

$I->seeInLastEmail('Please click this link to reset your password');

Actions

resetEmails

Clears the emails in MailCatcher's list. This prevents seeing emails sent during a previous test. You probably want to do this before you trigger any emails to be sent

Example:

<?php
// Clears all emails
$I->resetEmails();
?>

seeInLastEmail

Checks that an email contains a value. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

Example:

<?php
$I->seeInLastEmail('Thanks for signing up!');
?>
  • Param $text

seeInLastEmailTo

Checks that the last email sent to an address contains a value. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

This is useful if, for example a page triggers both an email to the new user, and to the administrator.

Example:

<?php
$I->seeInLastEmailTo('user@example.com', 'Thanks for signing up!');
$I->seeInLastEmailTo('admin@example.com', 'A new user has signed up!');
?>
  • Param $email
  • Param $text

dontSeeInLastEmail

Checks that an email does NOT contain a value. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

Example:

<?php
$I->dontSeeInLastEmail('Hit me with those laser beams');
?>
  • Param $text

dontSeeInLastEmailTo

Checks that the last email sent to an address does NOT contain a value. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

Example:

<?php
$I->dontSeeInLastEmailTo('admin@example.com', 'But shoot it in the right direction');
?>
  • Param $email
  • Param $text

grabMatchesFromLastEmail

Extracts an array of matches and sub-matches from the last email based on a regular expression. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body. The return value is an array like that returned by preg_match().

Example:

<?php
$matches = $I->grabMatchesFromLastEmail('@<strong>(.*)</strong>@');
?>
  • Param $regex

grabFromLastEmail

Extracts a string from the last email based on a regular expression. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

Example:

<?php
$match = $I->grabFromLastEmail('@<strong>(.*)</strong>@');
?>
  • Param $regex

lastMessageFrom

Grab the full email object sent to an address.

Example:

<?php
$email = $I->lastMessageFrom('example@example.com');
$I->assertNotEmpty($email['attachments']);
?>

lastMessage

Grab the full email object from the last email.

Example:

<?php
$email = $I->grabLastEmail();
$I->assertNotEmpty($email['attachments']);
?>

grabMatchesFromLastEmailTo

Extracts an array of matches and sub-matches from the last email to a given address based on a regular expression. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body. The return value is an array like that returned by preg_match().

Example:

<?php
$matchs = $I->grabMatchesFromLastEmailTo('user@example.com', '@<strong>(.*)</strong>@');
?>
  • Param $email
  • Param $regex

grabFromLastEmailTo

Extracts a string from the last email to a given address based on a regular expression. It searches the full raw text of the email: headers, subject line, and body.

Example:

<?php
$match = $I->grabFromLastEmailTo('user@example.com', '@<strong>(.*)</strong>@');
?>
  • Param $email
  • Param $regex

seeEmailCount

Asserts that a certain number of emails have been sent since the last time resetEmails() was called.

Example:

<?php
$match = $I->seeEmailCount(2);
?>
  • Param $count
