A Behat+Mink Demo

Mink

Mink is a browser emulators abstraction layer.

It defines a basic API through which you can talk with specific browser emulator libraries.

Mink drivers define a bridge between Mink and those libraries.

Read this article to know more about Mink.

This repository will allow you to easily try Mink and Behat to test… wikipedia.org!

Installation

Requirements:

You need a valid PHPUnit 3.5 installation:

pear channel-discover pear.phpunit.de
pear channel-discover components.ez.no
pear channel-discover pear.symfony-project.com

pear install phpunit/PHPUnit

Behat doesn't care what you use to validate your steps. But Mink uses PHPUnit assertions internally!

Usage

Clone this repo:

git clone https://github.com/KnpLabs/mink-demo

Now install Behat, Mink and their dependencies:

wget -nc http://getcomposer.org/composer.phar
php composer.phar install

Now to launch Behat, just run:

vendor/bin/behat

Launch Behat: the two first scenarios should use Goutte. The third one checks that the JS autocomplete field works on wikipedia: it uses Sahi! but lets ignore it for a quick start with --tags filter:

vendor/bin/behat --tags ~@javascript

You should see an output like:

Feature: Search
  In order to see a word definition
  As a website user
  I need to be able to search for a word

  Scenario: Searching for a page that does exist
    Given I am on /wiki/Main_Page
    When I fill in "search" with "Behavior Driven Development"
    And I press "searchButton"
    Then I should see "agile software development"

  Scenario: Searching for a page that does NOT exist
    Given I am on /wiki/Main_Page
    When I fill in "search" with "Glory Driven Development"
    And I press "searchButton"
    Then I should see "Search results"

Sahi

If you want to test @javascript part of feature, you'll need to install Sahi. Sahi gives you ability to run @javascript tagged scenarios in real browser.

  1. Download and run the Sahi jar from the http://sahi.co.in/w/
  2. Run sahi proxy before your test suites (you can start this proxy during system startup):

    cd $YOUR_PATH_TO_SAHI/bin
    ./sahi.sh

Now if you run:

vendor/bin/behat

you should see an output like:

Feature: Search
  In order to see a word definition
  As a website user
  I need to be able to search for a word

  Scenario: Searching for a page that does exist
    Given I am on /wiki/Main_Page
    When I fill in "search" with "Behavior Driven Development"
    And I press "searchButton"
    Then I should see "agile software development"

  Scenario: Searching for a page that does NOT exist
    Given I am on /wiki/Main_Page
    When I fill in "search" with "Glory Driven Development"
    And I press "searchButton"
    Then I should see "Search results"

  @javascript
  Scenario: Searching for a page with autocompletion
    Given I am on /wiki/Main_Page
    When I fill in "search" with "Behavior Driv"
    And I wait for the suggestion box to appear
    Then I should see "Behavior Driven Development"
