Running the tests

Running the tests:


Running only the unit tests or the functional tests

./bin/phpunit --testsuite=functional
./bin/phpunit --testsuite=unit

Styling the backend

The backend uses Bootstrap in combination with Sass. To make changes, you can either apply your styles in /src/Backend/Core/Layout/Css/screen.css or use Sass.

To use Sass, you first need to install it on your system, more info can be found here: If you use the command line, you can run the following command in your document root:

sass --watch src/Backend/Core/Layout/Sass:src/Backend/Core/Layout/Css --style compressed
