To configure PHPUnit with custom settings, follow these steps:
- Install PHPUnit globally on your system by running the following command:
composer global require phpunit/phpunit
- Create a phpunit.xml file in your project's root directory. This file will contain your custom PHPUnit settings. You can either create this file manually or use the --generate-configuration option of PHPUnit to create a skeleton configuration file.
This will create a phpunit.xml file with some default settings.
- Open the phpunit.xml file in a text editor and configure your custom settings. Here are a few common settings that you might want to customize:
- Save the phpunit.xml file.
- Run PHPUnit to execute your tests with the custom configuration. Make sure you are in the project's root directory and execute the following command:
PHPUnit will automatically detect the phpunit.xml file in the current directory and use the custom settings specified in that file.
That's it! You have successfully configured PHPUnit with custom settings. You can now use this configuration file to customize various aspects of PHPUnit's behavior based on your project's requirements.
