php – Exclude base directory from PHPUnit Code Coverage

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment


How do I exclude the base directories from PHPUnit’s Code Coverage?

This is my phpunit.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<phpunit bootstrap="include.php"
    <testsuite name="MyProject">
        <log type="coverage-html" target="../reports/coverage" charset="UTF-8" yui="true" highlight="false" lowUpperBound="35" highLowerBound="70"/>
        <log type="coverage-xml" target="../reports/coverage.xml"/>
        <log type="test-xml" target="../reports/logfile.xml" logIncompleteSkipped="false"/>
        <log type="testdox-html" target="../reports/testdox.html"/>
        <log type="testdox-text" target="../reports/testdox.txt"/>

When it output it includes all the base directories like:


How can I make it only include the ...\MyProject\* in the Code Coverage output?

How to&Answers:

Your answers doesn’t really describe your project layout but I assume what you are looking for is:

Including and Excluding Files for Code Coverage

This allows you to specify a whitelist of files that PHPUnit will care about when generating code coverage.

Everything that isn’t on that white list will not be shown in the report.

To do so add the following somewhere top level:

  <whitelist processUncoveredFilesFromWhitelist="true">
    <directory suffix=".php">.../MyProject/</directory>
