AutotestForPHP is based off of ZenTest autotest which is a popular Ruby tool for running tests as soon as files get changed: * http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenTest/
Code for displaying notifications is based on Carlos Brando autotest-notification gem: * http://github.com/carlosbrando/autotest-notification
The tool was written on Ruby but you don’t need to be a Ruby programmer in order to use it, just make sure you have Ruby and RubyGems installed: * http://www.ruby-lang.org * http://rubygems.org/read/chapter/3
Linux: You need to have libnotify binaries installed.
For ubuntu this means: sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin
Other distributions may package it with other names, do a search for libnotify using your distribution package manager.
If you use KDE and do not have libnotify-bin installed, it will try to use kdialog which is part of KDE. It also works if you have zenity installed.
Mac: You need to have Growl and growlnotify installed on your machine.
Download Growl[http://growl.info/index.php] and install it like any other application on your Mac.
Then you must install the growlnotify.
In your shell, cd to the directory on the Growl disk image containing growlnotify, and type ./install.sh. That script will install growlnotify to /usr/local/bin and the manpage to /usr/local/man.
Windows: You need to have Snarl and ruby-snarl installed on your machine.
Download Snarl[http://www.fullphat.net/] and install it like any other application on your machine.
Run in the command prompt:
gem install ruby-snarl
gem install autotestforphp –source http://gemcutter.org
During instalation, AutotestForPHP will create:
An empty PHPUnit boostrap file on autotestforphp/bootstrap-autotest.php to be used when running tests
An empty config file on autotestforphp/config.autotest
A PHPUnit config file on autotestforphp/phpunit-autotest.xml to will configure the bootstrap file to be used, tests folder and log results to a XML file needed for displaying notifications:
<phpunit bootstrap="./autotestforphp/bootstrap-autotest.php"> <testsuite name="Application"> <directory>./test/</directory> </testsuite> <logging> <log type="junit" target="./autotestforphp/logfile.xml" /> <!-- log type="test-xml" target="./autotestforphp/logfile.xml" for PHPUnit <= 3.2 /--> </logging> </phpunit>
You can specify the folders or files to be watched on autotestforphp/config.autotest file by setting the FOLDERS_TO_WATCH Ruby constant
FOLDERS_TO_WATCH = [‘./src//*’, ‘./app//*’, ‘./test/*/’, ‘./some_specific_file.php’]
If no folders are specified in config file, AutotestForPHP will watch for changes on the following folders (if they exist):
- Default autotestforphp/bootstrap-autotest.php
- Write comments about config usage on autotestforphp/config.autotest
- Folders / files to skip
- Check if tool was already installed and skip file creation
- Support for SimpleTest
