php-symfonyHow to do testing with PHP Symfony?

Testing with PHP Symfony is a great way to ensure that your application is working as expected.

To get started, you can use the Symfony PHPUnit Bridge to integrate PHPUnit into your Symfony application.

composer require --dev symfony/phpunit-bridge

Once installed, you can create a test class in the tests directory of your application.


namespace App\Tests;

use PHPUnit\Framework\TestCase;

class ExampleTest extends TestCase
    public function testSomething()

You can then run the tests with the bin/phpunit command.

$ bin/phpunit

PHPUnit 8.5.8 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.
