Helpers to build PHPUnit mock objects easily.

Why?

This library is not a mocking library. It's just a few helpers to write the most common mocks more easily.

It doesn't reinvent anything and is not intended to cover every use case: only the most common ones.

Installation

$ composer require --dev mnapoli/phpunit-easymock

To be able to use EasyMock in your tests you must include the trait in your class:

class MyTest extends \PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase
{
    use \EasyMock\EasyMock;

    // ...
}

Usage

Here is what a very common PHPUnit mock looks like:

$mock = $this->createMock('My\Class');

$mock->expect($this->any())
    ->method('sayHello')
    ->willReturn('Hello');

Yuck!

Here is how to write it with EasyMock:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => 'Hello',
]);

What if you want to assert that the method is called once (i.e. $mock->expect($this->once()))? Use spy() instead:

$mock = $this->easySpy('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => 'Hello',
]);

Features

You can mock methods so that they return values:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => 'Hello',
]);

Or so that they use a callback:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => function ($name) {
        return 'Hello ' . $name;
    },
]);

You can also have methods throw exceptions by providing an Exception instance:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => new \RuntimeException('Whoops'),
]);

It is possible to call the mock() method again on an existing mock:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class');

$mock = $this->easyMock($mock, [
    'sayHello' => 'Hello',
]);

What if?

If you want to use assertions or other PHPUnit features, just do it:

$mock = $this->easyMock('My\Class', [
    'sayHello' => 'hello',
]);

$mock->expects($this->once())
    ->method('sayGoodbye')
    ->willReturn('Goodbye');

Mocks are plain PHPUnit mocks, nothing special here.
