This PHPSpec extension provides Nyan formatters for PHPSpec.


This extension requires:

  • PHP 5.3.3 or later.
  • A terminal emulator with support for ANSI escape sequences, including color and cursor control.

NOTE: By default, the Windows console does not support ANSI escape sequences. If you'd like to use this extension on Windows, you may want to try one of the following solutions:


To install this, make sure you are using the latest release of PHPSpec, and then add the following to your composer.json:

"require-dev": {
    "phpspec/nyan-formatters": "1.*"

Install or update your dependencies, and then in a phpspec.yml file in the root of your project, add the following:

    - PhpSpec\NyanFormattersExtension\Extension

Then, you can add a --format switch to your phpspec command with one of the following values:

  • - Gives the standard Nyan Cat formatter

nyan cat formatter preview

  • nyan.dino - Gives a dinosaur formatter - Rawwr!

nyan dino formatter preview

  • nyan.crab - Gives a crab formatter

nyan crab formatter preview

If you want to use one of the formatters all the time, you can enforce a default by adding a option in the phpspec.yml file as follows: nyan.dino
