magnificent pecs. Build Status

pecs is a tiny behavior-driven development library for PHP 5.3, a la RSpec or JSpec.

To use the traditional example, it works like this:

require "lib/pecs.php";
require "bowling.php";

describe("Bowling", function() {
  it("should score 0 for a gutter game", function() {
    $bowling = new Bowling();
    for ($i=0; $i < 20; $i++) {
      $bowling->hit(0);
    }
    expect($bowling->score)->to_equal(0);
  });

  it("should get drinks for free just for being here", function() {
    $bowling = new Bowling();
    expect($bowling->score)->to_equal(42);
  });
});

\pecs\run();

The output looks something like this:

$ php test_bowling.php

Bowling
- should score 0 for a gutter game: pass
- should get drinks for free just for being here: fail

FAILURE:
expected 0 to equal 42
  #0 .../lib/pecs.php(32): pecs\Expect->assert('_equal', Array, true)
  #1 [internal function]: pecs\Expect->__call('to_equal', Array)
  #2 .../test_bowling.php(15): pecs\Expect->to_equal(42)
  #3 .../lib/pecs.php(221): {closure}()
  #4 .../lib/pecs.php(192): pecs\Spec->run()
  #5 .../lib/pecs.php(195): pecs\Suite->run()
  #6 .../lib/pecs.php(195): pecs\Suite->run()
  #7 .../lib/pecs.php(262): pecs\Suite->run()
  #8 .../lib/pecs.php(350): pecs\Runner->run(NULL)
  #9 .../test_bowling.php(19): pecs\run()
  #10 {main}

Credit

pecs is greatly inspired by JSpec's grammar-less syntax, and was written because I don't want to have to switch gears so much when going between PHP and JSpec testing.
