Run behat with PhantomJs

We need to run in 2 parallel terminals, One for behat and one for phantomJs.

  • If your phantomJs is not running still, Open a new terminal tab and run this command:
phantomjs --webdriver=8643

bin/behat -p phantomjs

If you get this error: Drupal\Exception\BootstrapException]
Unable to determine Drupal core version. Supported versions are 6, 7, and 8.

Check the path of the drupal installation in your new behat.yml.local file.
