            'ignoreFilePatterns'=>['~(controllers|widget|asset|interface|contract|migration)~i'],//array of regexp patterns for skip files
            'ignoreMethodPatterns'=>['~^(behaviors|find|rules|tableName|attributeLabels|scenarios)$~'],//array of regexp patterns for skip methods

after configuration you can use it in console

  • generate single test by file alias
    ./yii skeletest @app/components/MyComponent.php
  • generate tests recursive for all files by directory alias (Be careful, if directory contains sub-directory with non-psr namespace roots, for that directories you must generate test directly)
    ./yii skeletest/dir @frontend/services/registration --app=front
  • show options
    ./yii help skeletest/file
