something very similar for the code I work on. All my repos have a
phpunit.xml file in their root, so you can just run "phpunit" in there and
have all the tests run. Which is the standard way of doing things, and
recognized by lots of IDEs and plugins.
Right, yea, I actually tried quite the similar thing, by copying the
suite.xml file in <wikipath>/tests/phpunit into my RDFIO tests folder,
and modified the paths to include the RDFIO tests only.
The problem remeined still though, that in order to subclass the
MediaWikiTestCase in my tests (to get its functionality for accessing
the database etc), I still had to run the tests through MediaWiki's
phpunit.php file, otherwise it would not find all the required classes
and stuff it uses.
I'm currently using this handly little Node script
to run my tests on file
Or "grunt watch" in the repos where I'm using the Grunt task runner. When
running Linux you can write a 3 line bash script that already gets you most
of the value. As long as there is a sane test runner that is...
What tests do you want to run anyway? Not all MW tests I imagine, as they
take many minutes to run,
Exactly ... only the RDFIO tests. But still would like to be happy to
subclass the MediaWikiTestCase.
Also, indeed, I can (and have) set up a little bash script that runs the
tests with "watch" every 5 seconds or so, and greps for the string
"FAILURES" in the output. If I set this in a little tiny terminal window
that is always on top on the desktop, it almost works OK ...
... it's just that it is always nicer to have everything integrated in
the IDE :)
Anyway, many thanks for the pointers!
