I wrote some API tests with Codeception's ApiGuy. Now I want to set breakpoints in my PhpStorm 7 for tests debugging, but have no idea how to start debug session after
$ vendor/bin/codecept run
I ran into the same problem. Seems that Codeception comes only with command tool, which cannot be debugged. I finally ended up writing my own PHP runner, which is basically a lite copy of the
codeception command executable.
Actually all you would have to do in Linux is to remove the shebang from the
codeception tool to run it as a PHP script. But since commands other then
codeception run are much less likely to be a subject of debugging, I've prepared separate PHP script. It contains only the
<?php /** * Codeception PHP script runner */ require_once dirname(__FILE__).'/../vendor/codeception/codeception/autoload.php'; use Symfony\Component\Console\Application; $app = new Application('Codeception', Codeception\Codecept::VERSION); $app->add(new Codeception\Command\Run('run')); $app->run();
After you get this done you can set up your debugging script like any other in PHPStorm. So go to the
Select Run/Debug Configuration >
Add New Configuration (Alt + Inssert) >
PHP Script. Then name the run configuration and select the file you created above. Remember to add the
And that's it. Now you can run your tests from within IDE and debug them as ordinary scripts.
