Phake

Build Status Latest Stable Version Total Downloads Latest Unstable Version License

Phake is a framework for PHP that aims to provide mock objects, test doubles and method stubs.

Phake was inspired by a lack of flexibility and ease of use in the current mocking frameworks combined with a recent experience with Mockito for Java.

A key conceptual difference in mocking between Phake and most of php mocking frameworks (ie: mock functionality in PHPUnit, PHPMock, and mock functionality in SimpleTest) is that Phake (like Mockito) employs a verification strategy to ensure that calls get made. That is to say, you call your code as normal and then after you have finished the code being tested you can verify whether or not expected methods were called. This is very different from the aforementioned products for php which use an expectation strategy where you lay out your expectations prior to any calls being made.

Installation - Composer

Phake can be installed using Composer.

  1. Add Phake as a dependency.

You'll usually want this as a development dependency, so the example shows it in the require-dev section.

"require-dev": {
    "phake/phake": "1.*"
}
  1. Run Composer: php composer.phar install --dev or php composer.phar update phake/phake

Installation - Source

You can also of course install it from source by downloading it from our github repository: https://github.com/mlively/Phake
