How To Easily Testing WordPress Plugins With Docker

Testing WordPress Plugins With Docker

Using the Template

  • Clone the repo.
  • Copy all the source code of your plugin to the src folder.
  • Modify test/bootstrap.php: change to require your plugin instead of my plugin (Look for the TODO at line 21).
  • Start writing tests for your plugin! You can either modify the basic tests under tests/tests-plugin-security-scanner.php or delete this file and start from scratch. The whole wordpress test SDK is available for you.

Template File Structure

  • bootstrap.php: As the name implies, this file is taking care of bootstrapping – loading WordPress SDK so it will be available for your code and your tests code, and loading your plugin code so you could test it.
  • tests-plugin-sample.php: This file contains the actual tests for your plugin – feel free to rename it.

The Dockerfile

RUN echo "" >> /etc/apk/repositories &&\
apk add --update --no-cache subversion mysql mysql-client git bash g++ make autoconf && \
set -ex;&& \
docker-php-ext-install mysqli pdo pdo_mysql pcntl \
&& php -r "copy('', 'composer-setup.php');" \
&& php composer-setup.php --install-dir=/usr/bin --filename=composer
