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.
- Install phpunit on your development machine; (on ubuntu you may need to follow these instructions https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/phpunit/+bug/701544/comments/6)
- 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)
- 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 .
This requires phpunit 3.7 or later which is installed by running:
Unit tests can be run by:
From the main directory of mahara (eg, parent directory of htdocs)
