What is atoum?

atoum is a unit test framework like PHPUnit or SimpleTest, but it has a few advantages over these:

  • It’s modern and uses the innovations of latest PHP versions;
  • It’s simple and easy to learn;
  • It’s intuitive because its syntax is close to the English natural language;
  • despite constant changes to atoum, backward compatibility is one of the priorities of its developers.
