Mockery can be installed using Composer or by cloning it from its GitHub repository. These two options are outlined below.


You can read more about Composer on To install Mockery using Composer, first install Composer for your project using the instructions on the Composer download page. You can then define your development dependency on Mockery using the suggested parameters below. While every effort is made to keep the master branch stable, you may prefer to use the current stable version tag instead (use the @stable tag).

    "require-dev": {
        "mockery/mockery": "dev-master"

To install, you then may call:

php composer.phar update

This will install Mockery as a development dependency, meaning it won’t be installed when using php composer.phar update --no-dev in production.

Other way to install is directly from composer command line, as below.

php composer.phar require --dev mockery/mockery


The Git repository hosts the development version in its master branch. You can install this using Composer by referencing dev-master as your preferred version in your project’s composer.json file as the earlier example shows.
