Tests can be executed by running
The command above will execute unit and functional tests. Unit tests are testing the system components, while functional tests are for testing user interaction. Acceptance tests are disabled by default as they require additional setup since they perform testing in real browser.
Running acceptance tests
To execute acceptance tests do the following:
tests/acceptance.suite.ymlto enable suite configuration
codeception/codeceptionto install full featured version of Codeception
Update dependencies with Composer
Download Selenium Server and launch it:
java -jar ~/selenium-server-standalone-x.xx.x.jar
# for Firefox java -jar -Dwebdriver.gecko.driver=~/geckodriver ~/selenium-server-standalone-3.xx.x.jar # for Google Chrome java -jar -Dwebdriver.chrome.driver=~/chromedriver ~/selenium-server-standalone-3.xx.x.jar
As an alternative way you can use already configured Docker container with older versions of Selenium and Firefox:
docker run --net=host selenium/standalone-firefox:2.53.0
yii2_basic_testsdatabase and update it by applying migrations if you have them.
The database configuration can be found at
Start web server:
Now you can run all available tests
# run all available tests vendor/bin/codecept run # run acceptance tests vendor/bin/codecept run acceptance # run only unit and functional tests vendor/bin/codecept run unit,functional
Code coverage support
By default, code coverage is disabled in
codeception.yml configuration file, you should uncomment needed rows to be able
to collect code coverage. You can run your tests and collect coverage with the following command:
#collect coverage for all tests vendor/bin/codecept run -- --coverage-html --coverage-xml #collect coverage only for unit tests vendor/bin/codecept run unit -- --coverage-html --coverage-xml #collect coverage for unit and functional tests vendor/bin/codecept run functional,unit -- --coverage-html --coverage-xml
You can see code coverage output under the
