Mock PHP built-in functions with Prophecy
This package integrates the function mock library PHP-Mock with Prophecy.
composer require --dev php-mock/php-mock-prophecy
namespace foo; use phpmock\prophecy\PHPProphet; $prophet = new PHPProphet(); $prophecy = $prophet->prophesize(__NAMESPACE__); $prophecy->time()->willReturn(123); $prophecy->reveal(); assert(123 == time()); $prophet->checkPredictions();
This library comes with the same restrictions as the underlying
Only unqualified function calls in a namespace context can be prophesized. E.g. a call for
time()in the namespace
foois prophesizable, a call for
The mock has to be defined before the first call to the unqualified function in the tested class. This is documented in Bug #68541. In most cases you can ignore this restriction. But if you happen to run into this issue you can call
PHPProphet::define()before that first call. This would define a side effectless namespaced function.
Additionally it shares restrictions from Prophecy as well: Prophecy doesn't support pass-by-reference. If you need pass-by-reference in prophecies, consider using another framework (e.g. php-mock-phpunit).
