Running the tests

We use phpunit as a test framework. It's installed when using composer install. To be able to run them, make sure you have a database with the same credentials as your normal database and with the name suffixed with _test.

Because we support multiple php versions it gave some issues. Therefore we use the bridge from symfony.

Running the tests:

composer test

Running only the unit, functional, or the installer tests

 composer test -- --testsuite=functional
 composer test -- --testsuite=unit
 composer test -- --testsuite=installer

If you want to run all the tests except the ones from the installer use

composer test -- --exclude-group=installer

Styling the backend

The backend uses Bootstrap in combination with Sass. To make changes, you should make the changes into the scss-files, and regenerate the real css with gulp build.


We use yarn to install our dependencies. For now we have a gulp-script that moves everything to the correct directories. So if you change the dependencies, make sure you run gulp build.
