phpspec-code-coverage is a PhpSpec extension that generates Code Coverage reports for PhpSpec tests.

Generating Code Coverage reports allows you to to analyze which parts of your codebase are tested and how well. However, Code Coverage alone should NOT be used as a single metric defining how good your tests are.

Note! This is a maintained fork of henrikbjorn/phpspec-code-coverage package with compatible version numbers for stable releases.

Change Log

Please see CHANGELOG.md for information on recent changes.


Install this package as a development dependency in your project:

$ composer require --dev leanphp/phpspec-code-coverage

Enable extension by editing phpspec.yml of your project:

  LeanPHP\PhpSpec\CodeCoverage\CodeCoverageExtension: ~

This will sufficient to enable Code Coverage generation by using defaults provided by the extension. This extension supports various configuration options. For a fully annotated example configuration file check Configuration section.


If you execute phpspec run command, you will see code coverage generated in coverage directory (in html format):

$ bin/phpspec run

Note! When generating Code Coverage reports make sure PHP processes run via CLI are not memory limited (i.e. memory_limit set to -1 in /etc/php/cli/php.ini).

Running with phpdbg

This extension now supports phpdbg, which results in faster execution when using more recent versions of PHP. Run phpspec via phpdbg:

$ phpdbg -qrr phpspec run

Note! PHP 7+ is required for code generation to work with phpdbg.


You can see fully annotated phpspec.yml example file below, which can be used as a starting point to further customize the defaults of the extension. The configuration file below has all of the Configuration Options.

# phpspec.yml

  • format (optional) a list of formats in which code coverage should be generated. Can be one or many of: clover, php, text, html, xml (default html) Note: When using clover format option, you have to configure specific output file for the clover format (see below).
  • output (optional) sets an output file/directory where specific code coverage format will be generated. If you configure multiple formats, takes a hash of format:output (e.g. clover:coverage.xml) (default coverage)
  • show_uncovered_files (optional) for including uncovered files in coverage reports (default true)
  • lower_upper_bound (optional) sets lower upper bound for code coverage (default 35).
  • high_lower_bound (optional) sets high lower bound for code coverage (default 70)
  • whitelist takes an array of directories to whitelist (default: lib, src).
  • whitelist_files takes an array of files to whitelist (default: none).
  • blacklist takes an array of directories to blacklist (default: test, vendor, spec)
  • blacklist_files takes an array of files to blacklist
