Till Klampaeckel's Blog:
Cooking PHPUnit (and a chef-solo example on top)
December 05, 2011 @ 11:48:48

Till Klampaeckel has a new post to his blog combining two powerful technologies into one automated package that uses a Chef recipe to install PHPUnit as a part of the setup.

If you follow my blog for a while, you might have noticed that I'm a huge fan of automation. I just moved one of our development servers the other day and had one of these moments where something just paid off. Taking for granted that I can spin up fully operational EC2 instances in minutes, I also had our development stack installed and configured in an instant. My recipe basically follows Christer's instructions and because I distribute phpunit's command along with it, editing of the file is no longer required: when the chef run completes, phpunit34 is installed and ready to be used.

He includes the configuration needed to create a recipe for PHPUnit installation including how to use chef-solo to automate the install. It uses a "cookbook" from Till's collection on github to do some of the work for you. You can find out more about Chef on the OpsCode site.
