PHPUnit Pretty Result Printer Package

PHPUnit Pretty Result Printer Package

PHPUnit is the workhorse for PHP developers everywhere, it’s a tool we all use and use constantly. Because of this shouldn’t we want the output to visually appealing and look awesome? Mike Erickson thought so and created a Pretty Result Printer package that extends the default PHPUnit Result Printer to make it look better. Here is an example:

If you’d like to try this out installation is simple, just require the package:

composer require --dev codedungeon/phpunit-result-printer

Add this to your PHPUnit configuration XML:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <phpunit printerClass="Codedungeon\PHPUnitPrettyResultPrinter\Printer">
    // ....
  </phpunit>

Or run PHPUnit with the printer argument:

phpunit --printer=Codedungeon\\PHPUnitPrettyResultPrinter\\Printer

I know all design is subjective but I personally love the results of this, especially when you are in a code base with a lot of tests. Check it out on Github for more information and happy testing!
