So I have PHPUnit running in PHPStorm 7.1, but I can't find out how to get the ANSI color codes working from within tests. My PHPunit.xml has
colors = "true" in the property list, but every time I try something like:
echo " 33[31mError! Error! 33[0mn";
Inside one of my test cases, it just gives me:
in the PHPstorm phpunit output. Is there any way to make the colors appear properly when using ANSI color codes in tests in PHPStorm?
PhpStorm has special integration script to run PHPUnit tests (all messages/progress indicators are transferred into GUI part where you can easily see what tests have passed and what did not etc).
PhpStorm's console does not support ANSI colors -- http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-69880 and related tickets.
But you can install Grep Console plugin and it will add support for ANSI colors (needs to be activated in Settings). I have tried it with PHPUnit and it worked -- not everything was colored (some of the codes were not recognized, but most worked). You can contact plugin author with not working parts if desired.
