I can't make PHPUnit 4.2.6 to work with PHPStorm 8.

PHPUnit is loaded as phar inside PHPStorm 8 settings.

Whenever i try to run unit test in PHPStorm i get this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /private/var/folders/qh/xjz1kr297v34pl6zy70_2rl00000gn/T/ide-phpunit.php(171) : eval()'d code on line 1

Call Stack:

Warning: require_once(PHPUnit/Runner/Version.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /private/var/folders/qh/xjz1kr297v34pl6zy70_2rl00000gn/T/ide-phpunit.php on line 49

When i looked into "ide-phpunit.php", i found that it tries to eval invalid code, because of invalid "substr" function usage.

So my question is, if someone managed to make PHPUnit 4.2.6 work with PHPStorm 8?



PhpStorm generates special temporary "wrapping" to execute the tests and get the output in the form it understands better. In your case it's /private/var/folders/qh/xjz1kr297v34pl6zy70_2rl00000gn/T/ide-phpunit.php. Since the error says there is a syntax error, the first thing you should try is deleting it, on the next run the IDE will create the new one, hopefully without that problem.

If that doesn't help, as suggested in the comments, try downgrading the PHPUnit a few versions back, see if that helps. Alternatively try reinstalling the PhpStorm. If that doesn't work, you have better chances of finding an answer by reporting an issue to the dev team.

You should point to your vendor/autoload.php at Settings | PHP | PHPUnit when using PHPUnit via Composer.

This blog post has all the details (with pictures) to successfully configure IDE for such scenario:

On Mac OS X environment variables available in Terminal and for the normal applications can be different, check the related question for the solution how to make them similar.

Note that this solution will not work on Mountain Lion (10.8).

PhpStorm has special integration script to run PHPUnit tests (all messages/progress indicators are transferred into GUI part where you can easily see what tests have passed and what did not etc).

PhpStorm's console does not support ANSI colors -- and related tickets.

But you can install Grep Console plugin and it will add support for ANSI colors (needs to be activated in Settings). I have tried it with PHPUnit and it worked -- not everything was colored (some of the codes were not recognized, but most worked). You can contact plugin author with not working parts if desired.

I've seen people suggest adding $this->withoutMiddleware(); to the function, but that hasn't worked well for me. Try running it with a token present.

        ->post('user/promote', ['userPromoteId' => $this->user->id, 'name' => $this->user->name, '_token' => csrf_token()]);
