Visithor

Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality Latest Stable Version Latest Unstable Version

Visithor is a PHP library that provides you a simple and painless way of testing your application routes with expected HTTP Codes.

Of course this project not pretends to avoid the need of unit, functional or behavioral tests, it is only a fast and easy way of ensuring that your routes are still available over the time.

Frameworks

You can find some packages that will provide you some integration between Visithor and them. Check these repositories in order to use specific features.

Tags

  • Use last unstable version ( alias of dev-master ) to stay in last commit
  • Use last stable version tag to stay in a stable release.
  • Latest Unstable Version Latest Stable Version

Install

Install Visithor in this way:

$ composer global require visithor/visithor=dev-master

If it is the first time you globally install a dependency then make sure you include ~/.composer/vendor/bin in $PATH as shown here.

Always keep your Visithor installation up to date:

$ composer global update visithor/visithor

.phar file

You can also use already last built .phar.

$ git clone git@github.com:visithor/visithor.git
$ cd visithor
$ php build/visithor.phar

You can copy the .phar file as a global script

$ cp build/visithor.phar /usr/local/bin/visithor

Compile

Finally you can also compile your own version of the package. ( You need set phar.readonly = Off in your php.ini ).

$ git clone git@github.com:visithor/visithor.git
$ cd visithor
$ composer update
$ php bin/compile
$ sudo chmod +x build/visithor.phar
$ build/visithor.phar

You can copy the .phar file as a global script

$ cp build/visithor.phar /usr/local/bin/visithor

Config

Visithor uses the yml configuration format for your url definitions. This is the master document with all possible configurations.

defaults:
    #
    # This value can be a simple HTTP Code or an array of acceptable HTTP Codes
    # - 200
    # - [200, 301]
    #
    http_codes: [200, 302]
    options:
        verb: GET

urls:
    #
    # By default, is there is no specified HTTP Code, then default one is used
    # as the valid one
    #
    - http://google.es
    - http://elcodi.io
    
    #
    # There are some other formats available as well
    #
    - [http://shopery.com, 200]
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {verb: POST}]
    - [http://shopery.com, [200, 302]]

Your config file can be named visithor.yml or visithor.yml.dist, being this last one the preferred one.

Options

You can define a set of options per each url. Each option will be usable for the implementations on top of this library

urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {option1: value1, option2: value2}]

You can define these options as well in a global way using the default:options path

defaults:
    options:
        option3: value3
urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {option1: value1, option2: value2}]

In this example, Visithor will use the default options array as the base set of options for the url, and finally will merge with them the specific set of options defined in each url.

Merge means that if an option is defined in both places, then the one specifically defined in the url will overwrite the one defined globally

Profiles

You can group a set of options just creating profiles. A profile is a set of options to be used in a set of urls.

profiles:
    admin:
        option1: value1
        option2: value2
urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {profile: admin}]
    - [http://elcodi.io, 200, {profile: admin}]

In this example, Visithor will add all every option inside given profile and will append it in the url definition. So, last example is equivalent to this one

urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {option1: value1, option2: value2}]
    - [http://elcodi.io, 200, {option1: value1, option2: value2}]

You can assign by default a profile as well, adding it as a global option. Last example is equivalent to this one

defaults:
    options:
        profile: admin
profiles:
    admin:
        option1: value1
        option2: value2
urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200]
    - [http://elcodi.io, 200]

Verbs

You can define the preferred verb in the default options block. This value will be used as the default verb in all your urls, but you can overwrite this value just adding the new verb in the specific url line,

defaults:
    options:
        verb: GET

urls:
    - [http://shopery.com, 200, {verb: POST}]

Command

To execute the visithor you need to use a pre-built command called visithor:go.

visithor.phar visithor:go [--format|-f] [--config|-c]

Executing it you will receive this output (with last example) and 0 as the final result of the execution.

Dots

You can use a non-explicit format called dots using the --format|-f option. This format is useful for non-debug environments like travis or similars.

visithor.phar visithor:go --format=dots

Executing it you will receive this output (with last example) and 0 as the final result of the execution.
