D8 Webform CiviCRM now has automated unit testing! How can I run these unit tests on my local?
Ok here are the steps!
I'm on a Mac/MAMP and I use PhpStorm
A. Get Drupal
composer create-project drupal/recommended-project:8.9.13 d8civicrm.local cd d8civicrm.local composer config extra.enable-patching true composer config minimum-stability dev
B. Get CiviCRM
composer require civicrm/civicrm-core:5.35.0 civicrm/civicrm-packages:5.35.0 civicrm/civicrm-drupal-8:5.35.0 civicrm/civicrm-asset-plugin:~1.1
C. Install Drupal
Browser to your new website -> in my case: http://d8civicrm.local and follow the install step in the UI.
D. Make it writeable
chmod -R +w d8civicrm.local
we need to write e.g. the
civicrm.settings.php file next!
E. Install CiviCRM
Go to the UI -> Extend -> or use drush!
F. Patch alert!
No longer needed!
G. PHPUnit configuration
copy this file: https://gist.github.com/mglaman/efcdb804dcced6ddc856e9e0050aad1e
-> into /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/d8civicrm.local (i.e. where your composer.json is) and make updates specifically add in your
BASE_URL and your
DB location and credentials:
19c19 < <env name="SIMPLETEST_BASE_URL" value="http://d8civicrm.local"/> --- > <env name="SIMPLETEST_BASE_URL" value=""/> 21c21 < <env name="SIMPLETEST_DB" value="mysql://myadminuser:db^88*@localhost:3306/d8civicrm_local"/> --- > <env name="SIMPLETEST_DB" value=""/>
Note: when testing CiviCRM Extensions -> add this line as well - as per docs: docs -> https://docs.civicrm.org/dev/en/latest/testing/mink/
<env name="DEV_EXTENSION_DIR" value="/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/d9civicrm.local/web/sites/default/files/civicrm/ext/"/>
H. Install webform module
composer require 'drupal/webform:^6.0'
I. Install webform_civicrm module
-> (at this points the tests have not been released yet so you'll need to clone the webform civicrm github repo):
git clone https://github.com/colemanw/webform_civicrm.git --branch 8.x-5.x
J. Get the Drupal Dev tools
We started with
drupal-recommended - now let's get the dev tools:
composer config minimum-stability dev composer require drupal/core-dev-pinned:^8.9 --no-suggest
Note: reproducing this just now - I ended up having to
rm composer.lock and
rm -r vendor as it was spitting out a symfony conflict. Ah looks like in the
.github/workflows/main.yml file we install the drupal dev tools before we install CiviCRM
K. Configure PHPStorm
PHPStorm -> Preferences -> Language & Frameworks -> PHP -> Test Frameworks.
If running into autoloading issues - things to try: add the entire path to phpunit -> /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/d9civicrm.local/vendor/phpunit/phpunit as a PHP include path in Languages and Frameworks in the PhpStorm settings - hit Apply -> then check the Test Frameworks page again.
L. Install Chromedriver
and start it
/usr/local/bin/chromedriver To check that it's running: karins-MBP:bin sysadmin$ ps -ax |grep chromedriver 62821 ttys004 0:00.18 chromedriver
M. Run a test!
PS - Note to self: if you run into:
Error : Call to undefined method CRM_Utils_System_UnitTests::parseUrl()
Go into -> Run/Debug Configurations and hit Environment Variables and SWITCH OFF -> Include system environment variables (as one may have included variables specific to CiviCRM Unit Testing)
I'm still working on getting xdebug to work with phpunit test - in the mean time -> to debug variables within your unit test ->
$result_debug = var_export($contact_result, TRUE);
throw new \Exception(var_export($api_result, TRUE));
