Development using a virtual machine
You can set up a development virtual machine for ZF1 unit testing and library development following these simple instructions.
1. Install requirements for VM. (Note: these are not required by ZF1 itself)
- VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/)
- Ruby (http://www.ruby-lang.org/)
- Vagrant (http://vagrantup.com/)
2. Checkout repository to any location
git clone git://github.com/zendframework/zf1.git zf1-dev cd zf1-dev
3. Start the process by running Vagrant.
This will take a long while as it has to download a VM image and then provision it. Once it has finished, it will exit and leave you back at the command prompt.
4. SSH into the VM
5. Build a version of PHP.
This also takes a while as it compiles PHP for you!
6. Select PHP to use:
7. Run tests
cd /vagrant/tests phpunit --stderr -d memory_limit=-1 Zend/Acl/AclTest.php phpunit --stderr -d memory_limit=-1 Zend/Amf/AllTests.php (etc...)
Note that you can repeat items 5 and 6 to create any version if PHP.
- The VM will be running in the background as VBoxHeadless
- HTTP and SSH ports on the VM are forwarded to localhost (22 -> 2222, 80 -> 8081)
- The zf1-dev directory you checked out will be mounted inside the VM at /vagrant
- You can develop by editing the files you cloned in the IDE of you choice.
To stop the VM do one of the following:
vagrant suspend # if you plan on running it later vagrant halt # if you wish to turn off the VM, but keep it around vagrant destroy # if you wish to delete the VM completely
Also, when any of of the Puppet manifests change (.pp files), it is a good idea to rerun them:
