  • Infection

    PHP Mutation Testing library

    Project mention: Collecting line, branch, and path coverage with PHPUnit | | 2023-03-23

    IMO code coverage is a very flawed metric on its own. A high percentage doesn't guarantee that the tests actually test the right things, and it would be much more efficient if mutation testing was used (e.g. Infection). It still uses the generated code coverage reports, but only as a base for its own metrics.
