Matthew Weier O'Phinney:
Automating PHPUnit with Node
Oct 25, 2016 @ 09:06:40

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has a new post to his site today showing you how you can automate PHPUnit runs while doing local development with the help of a little Node.

I've been trying to automate everything this year. When working on OSS, this is usually as simple as setting up Travis CI; in some cases, even that becomes a little more involved, but remains possible.

But that's continuous integration. What about continuous development? With continuous integration, every time I push to a branch associated with a pull request or on the origin repository, a build is triggered. [...] Ideally, I should also be testing locally. [...] I'd like to automate running these as part of my development process. I want continuous development cycles.

He then walks you through the automation setup he's devised for his own local development, adding a few lines to his Composer configuration for scripts to run when "composer check" is called. This is where Node comes in: he uses Gulp (and a few dependencies) to watch the filesystem for changes. With that setup configured and working, he can then just run "gulp" and a Node process executes and watches for those changes. When an update is discovered, "composer check" is executed and a system notification is fired if an error pops up. He's also created a package you can use to set this all up a bit simpler, only requiring a single command to execute.

Killerphp Videos Now Available for Download
Aug 19, 2008 @ 07:56:03

Stefan Mischook notes today that the videos he offers, including several on PHP can now be purchased as a set from his site.

I've had many request for access to the videos either on a DVD or in a downloadable format for viewing offline. So after many months of brushing it off, I now have the videos for you.

The download version will cost you about $20 USD and the DVD is around $30 USD. Of course, you're still free to watch them online as many times as you'd like.

Sam Hennessy submitted a link today to the PRADO Watch blog, a site dedicated to providing some of the latest information on the PRADO framework project.

PRADO is a component-based and event-driven framework for rapid Web programming in PHP 5. PRADO reconceptualizes Web application development in terms of components, events and properties instead of procedures, URLs and query parameters.

Recent updates to the blog include an interview with Dario Rigolin of foxcoverplay.com and several Prado Watch editions. Keep checking back for the latest updates on this great framework.
