Test Driven Development With PHP

Testing

In a previous post I wrote about the benefits of using Test Driven Development in your application development process. This can be used in all types of development from software to web to front-end to back-end languages. In this post I will go through the steps of using Test Driven Development in PHP.

PHPUnit
PHPUnit is one of the most popular automated testing frameworks for PHP it allows you to create your own unit tests for your test driven development process.

In order to use PHPUnit you need to have it installed on your Apache server by using the PEAR installer.

You can see how to install this on the PHPUnit Github Page.
