Phut

Phut is a small unit test framework for PHP 5.3+, inspired by NUnit

Build status

What is Phut

Phunit is a **PH**P **U**nit **T**est framework which uses annotations to mimic the behavior of NUnit for .Net.

Why another unit testing framework?

I was tired searching for a unit testing framework for PHP that:

  • Fully supports namespaces
  • Is easy to setup
  • Works on Windows without a hassle

So finally, when I didn't find a single framework that did all of the above, I decided to do it myself.

Installation

You can install Phut using one of the following methods.

Using Composer

One simple way to install Phut is to use Composer. First create or modify your composer.json file in the project root to include:

{
    "require": {
        "klei/phut": "*"
    },
    "config": {
        "bin-dir": "bin/"
    }
}

Then download composer.phar from http://getcomposer.org/ and run:

php composer.phar install

Or using git

You could also clone the Phut repository with:

git clone git://github.com/klei-dev/phut.git

Then download composer.phar as above and execute the following:

php composer.phar install

Writing your first test

As mentioned above Phut uses annotations to work. The name of the annotations is directly inspired by the NUnit framework for .Net. I.e. a test class must be annotated with @TestFixture and each test with @Test.

A simple test could therefore look like this:

<?php
use Klei\Phut\TestFixture;
use Klei\Phut\Test;
use Klei\Phut\Assert;

/**
 * @TestFixture
 */
class MyFirstTests {
    /**
     * @Test
     */
    public function MultiplyOperator_Multiply2by4_ShouldGive8()
    {
        // Given
        $number1 = 2;
        $number2 = 4;

        // When
        $result = $number1 * $number2;

        // Then
        Assert::areIdentical($result, 8);
    }
}

You can then run your test with the command:

bin/phut [<test-folder-name>|<test-file-name>]

If no folder (<test-folder-name>) or file (<test-file-name>) is specified, the runner defaults to the folder tests/.

The future for Phut

Stuff for future releases:

  • More extensive Assert-class
  • @TestCase annotation to write parameterized tests
  • Optional Category parameter for the @Test annotation to be able to categorize tests and run only certain categories
