Unit Test Introduction

Work is currently underway to integrate phpunit unit testing in to Mahara. Documentation for phpunit is available at http://www.phpunit.de/manual/current/en/

Setup and Running

You'll need to already have mahara set up and installed. Default settings are copied from your running configuration and overridden with unit test settings.

Old instructions

  • Install phpunit on your development machine
  • Switch to a user with permission to access your dataroot directory. In debian this would be:
 sudo su - www-data
  • Change directory to the root of the mahara git tree (the directory that htdocs is in)
 cd $path_to_mahara
  • Run phpunit, first option only if you have set up your cli for php properly:
 phpunit .
OR
 php -c  /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini  /usr/bin/phpunit .
OR
 php -c  /etc/php5/php-fpm/php.ini  /usr/bin/phpunit .


New instructions

This requires phpunit 3.7 or later which is installed by running:

make initcomposer

Unit tests can be run by:

make phpunit

From the main directory of mahara (eg, parent directory of htdocs)
