Cody Kennedy-Darby:
Testing Your Current Code Against PHP7 Or HHVM
April 01, 2015 @ 08:49:11

On Medium.com Cory Kennedy-Darby has a quick post showing you how you can test your current code against the latest versions of PHP 7 with the help of DUnit.

DUnit (dee-unit) makes your life easier by allowing you to run your unit tests on different versions of PHP or HHVM. Different versions are possible by using Docker containers. Thanks to @danbruce each of the Docker containers are only, ~35 MB in size. [...] PHP7 isn't that far away. In fact, it is scheduled for release in ~8 months in November. Now is the perfect time to start testing your code against PHP7 nightly.

He starts with a few reasons you might want to test your code and things you can do to start "thinking forward" to when it is released. He then shows you how to install DUnit (more detail here) and use it to test on both PHP 7 and HHVM builds.

HipHop Virtual Machine Blog:
Nightly Packages
January 23, 2014 @ 09:19:10

On the HipHop Virtual Machine blog today they're announcing a new option for those that "just can't wait" to get the latest and greatest HHVM version - nightly packages.

If you just can't wait to get your hands on the latest HHVM code, but you don't want to spend the time to compile it, we have a present for you. Every midnight, we run a script that pulls whatever is in master, compiles it, does a sanity check, builds a package and sends it off to the repo. You can then use it by adding the HHVM repo normally and then installing the "hhvm-nightly" package instead of the "hhvm" package. The nightly package should work identically to the current 8 week release cycle package; it will just have all the most recent commits with much less of the testing and hardening (so beware).

The post also includes three examples of the commands to grab this nightly release (via dl.hhvm.com) and install the "hhvm-nightly" package.
