PHPUnit Test Adapter for PeachPie/PHP Projects

This project implements .NET Test Adapter for PeachPie projects containing PHPUnit tests.

Please explain

PeachPie projects are PHP projects compiled into .NET using PeachPie. It allows to run the PHP code as a regular .NET language, on top of .NET runtime. Test Adapter is an integration of unit tests into the .NET work flow. You may know it as Visual Studio's Test Explorer or the command line utility dotnet test.

This all together allows to run, debug, and profile PHPUnit tests on top of .NET runtime, inside the Visual Studio or using other .NET build tools or continuous integration services.

Sample project

The test project will be a .NET executable application (e.g. TargetFramework net5.0), compiling the test files (e.g. tests/**.php), and referencing the actual PeachPie/PHP application.


<Project Sdk="Peachpie.NET.Sdk/1.0.5-preview7">
    <Compile Include="**/*.php" />
    <PackageReference Include="Microsoft.NET.Test.Sdk" Version="16.6.1" />
    <PackageReference Include="PHPUnit.TestAdapter" Version="9.2.6-preview7" />

File structure

- src
  - Email.php
- tests
  - EmailTest.php
- phpunit.xml
- lib.msbuildproj


  • In Visual Studio:

    Open the project in Visual Studio. Navigate to Test / Test Explorer, and continue by running or debugging the discovered tests.

    test explorer

  • On command line:

    dotnet test

Repository structure

  • src/PHPUnit.TestAdapter - The test adapter for VSTest enabling to run PHPUnit tests from dotnet test and Test Explorer in Microsoft Visual Studio. The project references PHPUnit package, and utilizes its API to drive tests discovery and tests execution.
  • src/phpunit.phpunit.phar - PHPUnit compiled with Peachpie to a .NET Standard assembly. The file phpunit.phar gets downloaded automatically.
  • src/dotnet-phpunit - An optional command line tool dotnet phpunit that runs PHPUnit on a PeachPie project.

The test adapter can be tested on the following sample:

  • samples/Lib - A simple .NET/PHP application with PHPUnit tests.

Test Adapter for VSTest

To run them from the command line, navigate to samples/Lib and run:

dotnet test

The output should be similar to this one (possibly preceeded by the build log):

Test run for samples\Lib\bin\Debug\netcoreapp3.1\Lib.dll(.NETCoreApp,Version=v3.1)
Microsoft (R) Test Execution Command Line Tool Version 16.6.0
Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

Starting test execution, please wait...

A total of 1 test files matched the specified pattern.

Test Run Successful.
Total tests: 3
     Passed: 3
 Total time: 4.2106 Seconds

You can also open either of these projects in Microsoft Visual Studio and use the Test Explorer window to inspect the existing tests, run, debug, and profile them.

dotnet phpunit

To test dotnet-phpunit on samples/Lib (which references phpunit.phpunit.phar as a project), just run it using the default launch settings.

To test it, run the following commands in the directory samples/Lib:

dotnet tool install --global dotnet-phpunit
dotnet build
dotnet phpunit

Both variants should run PHPUnit with the output similar to this one:

Runner of PHPUnit (© Sebastian Bergmann) on PHP assemblies compiled by Peachpie

Building "samples\Lib\Lib.msbuildproj"...
Opening assembly "samples\Lib\obj\Debug\netstandard2.0\Lib.dll"...

PHPUnit 9.2.6 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.

...                                                                 3 / 3 (100%)

Time: 00:00.696, Memory: 39.29 KB

OK (3 tests, 3 assertions)

To explicitly disable building of the project (as it's already built), pass the --no-build option to dotnet phunit, e.g.:

dotnet phpunit --no-build

If you wish to remove dotnet-phpunit from the set of installed tools, run:

dotnet tool uninstall --global dotnet-phpunit
