Testing your PHP Codebase with EnhancePHP
Jan 23, 2012 @ 09:25:45

On NetTuts.com today a new tutorial has been posted to help you test your applications and make it a simpler process using the EnhancePHP framework. EnhancePHP is a lightweight Open Source PHP unit testing framework with support for mocks and stubs.

You know it; I know it. We should be testing our code more than we do. Part of the reason we don’t, I think, is that we don’t know exactly how. Well, I’m getting rid of that excuse today: I’m teaching you to test your PHP with the EnhancePHP framework.

He shows you how to download it, get it installed and creates a simple structure to do some TDD (Test-Driven Development) with it. His tests check three things - valid email addresses, username restrictions and phone number formatting. He also includes a look at creating mocks/stubs for a "scoreboard" example.

You can find out more about the EnhancePHP framework on its github page.
