Manual:PHP unit testing


We do unit testing of MediaWiki's PHP code base using the PHPUnit framework. View our test coverage.

Core MediaWiki PHP unit tests are in the tests/phpunit directory. The directory structure roughly matches that of the code being tested. For example: you can find the unit tests for file includes/IP.php in tests/phpunit/includes/IPTest.php.

Extensions often have tests in a tests subdirectory.
