phpspec-watcher is a cli tool for the automatic execution of phpspec tests when code changes
phpspec-watcher is a tool for automating phpspec test execution when the source code of a project changes. On file save the watcher automatically triggers the phpspec test suite and informs the developer about the test results.
This tool can be installed globally with

composer require fetzi/phpspec-watcher --dev

If you have installed the watcher as a dev-dependency for one project you can find the binary within the vendor bin directory.
The watcher can be configured with a configuration file
.phpspec-watcher.yml stored in the project root directory.
The following listing shows the file structure and the option meanings:
fileMask: '*.php' # file pattern that should be watched checkInterval: 1 # a float value indicating the resource check interval directories: # a list of directories that should be watched - app - src - spec phpspec: binary: vendor/bin/phpspec # path to the phpspec binary arguments: [format=dot] # additional phpspec arguments notifications: # flags for notfications on success and on error onError: true onSuccess: true
To speed up the configuration thing there is an initialization command to bootstrap the config file with default values:
The watcher triggers operating system notifications after executing the test suite.
To display the notification icons on Mac you need to install another notifier because AppleScript cannot display custom icons
brew install terminal-notifier
