Command Line Runner
The Pest command line runner has many available options that can make your testing experience easier.
Pest defers non-Pest-specific options to PHPUnit, so please refer to the PHPUnit command-line test runner documentation for a full list.
This option allows you to initialise a standard Pest configuration, with the following files:
tests/Pest.phpfile, for configuring your testcases.
tests/Helpers.phpfile, for configuring your helpers.
tests/ExampleTest.phpfile, with a default example test.
This option enables coverage using the underlying
--coverage-php option, and will output the results to the terminals standard output.
You can combine this with other coverage options from PHPUnit such as
This option allows you to set a minimum required coverage value. If the coverage does not meet this value, the test suite will fail.
This option allows you to only run a specific list of grouped tests. This is a comma-separated list.
