Composes all relevant packages for WP components unit testing (brain/monkey and mockery) and provides test cases for PHPUnit that bootstrap Mockery and BrainMonkey. Monkery is a portmanteau of Mockery and Monkey.


composer require --dev inpsyde/monkery-test-case

Writing tests


use MonkeryTestCase\BrainMonkeyWpTestCase;

class MyTest extends BrainMonkeyWpTestCase {

    public function testAnything() {

        // use \Mockery and \Brain\Monkey here

But why?

Working on large projects with several packages that all declare a ...\Tests\MockeryTestCase class which does exactly the same will result in a confusing list of autocomplete suggestions in your IDE. Also, with one central FQCN for the test case class you can use an IDE file template across packages.
