PHP Callable Fake Library

PHP Callable Fake Library

Callable Fake is a PHP testing utility by Tim Macdonald that “allows you to fake, capture, and assert against invocations of a callable / Closure.” In some cases, this package can assist in testing scenarios where you allow a developer to pass a callable.

It has a Laravel fake-inspired API that looks something like this:

// Before, you might collect callables to assert later...
public function testEachLoopsOverAllDependencies(): void
{
    // arrange
    $received = [];
    $expected = factory(Dependency::class)->times(2)->create();
    $repo = $this->app[DependencyRepository::class];

    // act
    $repo->each(function (Dependency $dependency) use (&$received): void {
        $received[] = $dependency;
    });

    // assert
    $this->assertCount(2, $received);
    $this->assertTrue($expected[0]->is($received[0]));
    $this->assertTrue($expected[1]->is($received[1]));
}

Using this package you can use something like the following instead:

public function testEachLoopsOverAllDependencies(): void
{
    // arrange
    $callable = new CallableFake();
    $expected = factory(Dependency::class)->times(2)->create();
    $repo = $this->app[DependencyRepository::class];

    // act
    $repo->each($callable);

    // assert
    $callable->assertTimesInvoked(2);
    $callable->assertCalled(function (Depedency $dependency) use ($expected): bool {
        return $dependency->is($expected[0]);
    });
    $callable->assertCalled(function (Dependency $dependency) use ($expected): bool {
        return $dependency->is($expected[1]);
    });
}

This package provides assertions like assertCalled, assertNotCalled, assertInvoked, and a few others. Be sure to check out the full list of available assertions in the project’s readme for details and examples.
