Php Depend is php fork of JDepend. pDepend traverses Php class file directories and generates design quality metrics for each php package. At chart you can see abstractness and instability at axis. This metric is an indicator of the package’s balance between abstractness and stability. At pyramid some data as NOP (number of packages), NOC (number of classes), NOM (number of methods), LOC (line of code). Details about pyramid you find at Using the Overview Pyramid.
Php Frameworks in Php Depend
I’m not expert in QA. I have some experiences with integration php. I use phpunit, phpcs and Hudson for CPD, PMD, Code Coverage and Unit testing. For integration tests we use Selenuim and phpunit. Php Depend is good for some comparism between frameworks. Matrics can’t say how good is code in framework or if is good for my project. Some numbers as ANDC (Average Number of Derived Classes) and AHH (Average Hierarchy Height) can give some image about programming style.
In article you have some comparism and i make this test every 6 months and after that will be results about progress in frameworks.
