README

An extension to PHPUnit to test creation of PDF-Files.

About

Creating PDF-Files is always a bit difficult as the best comparison is a visual one.

As 2 PDF-Files can be internally completely different there is no way of comparing them on a source-code-level. Therefore comparing them by creating an image and comparing that to a known-good file. The differences between the two files are calculated and measured against a threshold.

Requirements

This package requires imagemagicks compare-binary to be installed and available in the path.

Installation

$ composer require org_heigl/pdfunit

Usage

namespace Acme;

use Org_Heigl\PDFUnit\TestCase;

class PDFTest extends TestCase
{
    public function testPdf()
    {
        $this->assertPdfDiffBelowThreshold(
            'known-good.pdf',
            0.4,
            'generated.pdf'
        );
    }
}

This will compare generated.pdf agains known-good.pdf and checks whether the difference is less or equals to 0.4.
