WPBrowser 1.7.13 out

WPBrowser module updated with core and new test cases.

Test case classes refresh

I’ve pushed version 1.7.13 of the WP Browser module for Codeception and took the time to sync the test cases included in the suite with those coming from the WordPress automated testing suite; some new methods the core team added while working with and on the tests were missing and it was time to update the embedded ones.
Together with this I’ve duplicated the code in the base test classes to extend Codeception base test class and allow for any Codeception annotation magic to happen.
To make an example the new test class structure is now

\Codeception\TestCase\WPTestCase extends \Codeception\TestCase\Test and has the code of the \WP_UnitTestCase class

while before any test generated using the wpcept generate:wpunit command was an extension of the base \WP_UnitTestCase class.

New generation powers

Speaking about generation I’ve added four new commands to generate any one of the new test case classes; straight from the readme file here are the new commands.

generate:wpunit

Generates a test case extending the \Codeception\TestCase\WPTestCase class using the

  wpcept generate:wpunit suite SomeClass

The command will generate a skeleton test case like

<?php

class SomeClassTest extends \Codeception\TestCase\WPTestCase
{
    protected function setUp()
    {
      parent::setUp();
    }

    protected function tearDown()
    {
      parent::tearDown();
    }

    // tests
    public function testMe()
    {
    }

}

generate:wprest

Generates a test case extending the \Codeception\TestCase\WPRestApiTestCase class using the

  wpcept generate:wprest suite SomeClass

The command will generate a skeleton test case like

<?php

class SomeClassTest extends \Codeception\TestCase\WPRestApiTestCase
{
    protected function setUp()
    {
      parent::setUp();
    }

    protected function tearDown()
    {
      parent::tearDown();
    }

    // tests
    public function testMe()
    {
    }

}

generate:wpajax

Generates a test case extending the \Codeception\TestCase\WPAjaxTestCase class using the

  wpcept generate:wpajax suite SomeClass

The command will generate a skeleton test case like

<?php

class SomeClassTest extends \Codeception\TestCase\WPAjaxTestCase
{
    protected function setUp()
    {
      parent::setUp();
    }

    protected function tearDown()
    {
      parent::tearDown();
    }

    // tests
    public function testMe()
    {
    }

}

generate:wpxmlrpc

Generates a test case extending the \Codeception\TestCase\WPXMLRPCTestCase class using the

  wpcept generate:wpxmlrpc suite SomeClass

The command will generate a skeleton test case like

<?php

class SomeClassTest extends \Codeception\TestCase\WPXMLRPCTestCase
{
    protected function setUp()
    {
      parent::setUp();
    }

    protected function tearDown()
    {
      parent::tearDown();
    }

    // tests
    public function testMe()
    {
    }

}

generate:wpcanonical

Generates a test case extending the \Codeception\TestCase\WPCanonicalTestCase class using the

  wpcept generate:wpcanonical suite SomeClass

The command will generate a skeleton test case like

<?php

class SomeClassTest extends \Codeception\TestCase\WPCanonicalTestCase
{
    protected function setUp()
    {
      parent::setUp();
    }

    protected function tearDown()
    {
      parent::tearDown();
    }

    // tests
    public function testMe()
    {
    }

}

Next

I will work on some edge cases I came across while working for clients and come back to the tool anytime an issue arises.

I appreciate your input
