I want to run PHPUnit tests from within my IDE - and I know Karin G. has created excellent directions for PHPStorm, but I use Netbeans 8.2. What can I do?
[This all assumes you have
civicrm-buildkit already working and that you can run CiviCRM phpunit tests successfully from the command line.]
1. Tell Netbeans which phpunit executable you're using.
- Go to Tools » Options, then PHP tab, PHPUnit subtab.
- Set the path of your PHPUnit script. See screenshot:
2. Create a shell script with your environment variable.
Copy this script into a file anywhere on your filesystem:
#!/bin/sh env CIVICRM_UF=UnitTests /path/to/your/phpunit5 $@
3. Tell Netbeans where to find your tests.
- Go to File menu » Project Properties, Testing tab.
- Click Add Folder and select the
<civiroot>/tests/phpunitfolder. See screenshot:
4. Tell Netbeans the CiviCRM-specific info it needs.
- Go to File menu » Project Properties, PHPUnit tab.
- Check the Use XML Configuration box.
- Set the XML Configuration path to
- Check the Use Custom PHPUnit Script box.
- Set the PHPUnit Script to the path of the file from step 2.
5. You're ready to go!
From any PHP file in the main codebase, press
Ctrl-F6 (or Run menu » Test File) to start your tests. You can also re-run only failed tests.
If PHPUnit isn't working, bring up the "Output" window (Window menu » Output). This will show you the exact command Netbeans tried to run. You can run it on your command line to compare results and tweak it.
