Motivation

In our application you should never obtain NOW via new DateTime() or from SQL NOW(). Because it's unmockable and therefore untestable.

This ultra-simple library provides service you can easily use and mock.

Install

composer require damejidlo/datetime-factory

And then just register it in your config.neon as a service.

Example (of mocking in tests)

public function testXyz(\DateTimeImmutable $subjectTime)
{
    $container = $this->createContainer();
    $dateTimeFactory = Mockery::mock(DateTimeFactoryImmutable::class);
    $dateTimeFactory->shouldReceive('getNow')->andReturn($subjectTime);
    $container->removeService('dateTimeFactory');
    $container->addService('dateTimeFactory', $dateTimeFactory);
}
