Compare proxyz vs Mockery and see what are their differences.


Uses namespaced functions to replaced native functions (by rezen)


Mockery is a simple yet flexible PHP mock object framework for use in unit testing with PHPUnit, PHPSpec or any other testing framework. Its core goal is to offer a test double framework with a succinct API capable of clearly defining all possible object operations and interactions using a human readable Domain Specific Language (DSL).

    Mockery is another framework for creating test doubles. It can be used with PHPUnit, phpspec, Behat, or any other testing framework. I find it especially powerful when working with legacy code, due to its support for creating partial mocks or mocking hard dependencies.

    This works great if a method is tested that modifies and returns an object; we'll get an instance of that object and we are able to run all sorts of assertions on it. But what if this is not the case. What if we have a situation where a value object is passed as a parameter, some modifications are done and the value object is passed to another object. Something like the middleware from the example earlier. Some testing frameworks like Mockery offer spies to test these situations. When using Prophecy this situation can be handled using Argument::that():
