Updating Codacy

To update Codacy, you will need your project API token. You can find the token in Project -> Settings -> Integrations -> Project API.

Then set it in your terminal, replacing %Project_Token% with your own token:

export CODACY_PROJECT_TOKEN=%Project_Token%

Note: You should keep your API token well protected, as it grants owner permissions to your projects.

To send coverage in the enterprise version you should:

export CODACY_API_BASE_URL=<Codacy_instance_URL>:16006


Run vendor/bin/codacycoverage to see a list of commands.

Basic usage for Clover format:

vendor/bin/codacycoverage clover

Basic usage for PHPUnit XML format:

php vendor/bin/codacycoverage phpunit

By default we assume that

  • your Clover coverage report is saved in build/logs/clover.xml
  • your PHPUnit XML report is saved in the directory build/coverage-xml

Optional parameters:

You can specify the path to your report with the second parameter:

  • Clover XML
    • php vendor/bin/codacycoverage clover path/to/a-clover.xml
  • PHPUnit XML
    • php vendor/bin/codacycoverage phpunit directory/path/to/phpunitreport

Even more control:

  • --base-url=<OTHER_URL> defaults to
  • --git-commit=<COMMIT_HASH> defaults to the last commit hash

Circle CI

This project sends its own coverage during the build in circleCI. Feel free to check our circle.yml, and send your coverage as a step of your build process.

Travis CI

Add codacycoverage to your .travis.yml:

# .travis.yml
language: php

# Do not forget to provide your CODACY_PROJECT_TOKEN as described in

# In case of timeouts and build failures you may want to prepend 'travis_retry' to the following commands:
  - curl -s | php
  - php composer.phar install -n

  - php vendor/bin/phpunit --coverage-clover build/coverage/xml

  - php vendor/bin/codacycoverage clover build/coverage/xml
