MailCatcher Extension

Build Status Scrutinizer Code Quality

MailCatcher is a super simple SMTP server which catches any message sent to it.

MailCatcherExtension provides:

  • Kibao\Behat\MailCatcherExtension\Context\MailCatcherAwareContext, which provides MailCatcher Client instance for your context.
  • MailCatcherContext context which provides base step definitions for your contexts.

Installation

This extension requires:

  • Behat 3.0+

Through Composer

  1. Add MailCatcherExtension to your composer.json:

    {
        "require-dev": {
            ...
            "kibao/mailcatcher": "*@dev",
            "kibao/behat-mailcatcher-extension": "0.2.*@dev"
        }
    }
  2. Install or update vendors:

    $ composer update kibao/mailcatcher kibao/behat-mailcatcher-extension
  3. Activate extension in your behat.yml:

    default:
       # ...
       extensions:
            Kibao\Behat\MailCatcherExtension\Extension: ~

Configuration

Default configuration:

default:
    # ...
    extensions:
        Kibao\Behat\MailCatcherExtension\Extension:
            client:
                url:    http://localhost    # MailCatcher http url
                port:   1080                # MailCatcher http port
            purge_before_scenario:      true
            mailcatcher_client:         kibao.mailcatcher.client.default    # client service
            mailcatcher_connection:     kibao.mailcatcher.connection.guzzle # connection service

Usage

First of all you need to have installed MailCatcher.

There are few options:

  1. Extending RawMailCatcherContext in your feature suite. It provides you preconfigured MailCatcher with basic methods. RawMailCatcherContext doesn't provide any step definitions, so you can extend it in many contexts.

  2. Extending MailCatcherContext with one of your contexts. It provides you same things as RawMailCatcherContext and also predefined steps out of the box.

  3. Adding MailCatcherContext as context in your suite.

    default:
      suites:
        my_suite:
          contexts:
            - FeatureContext
            - Kibao\Behat\MailCatcherExtension\Context\MailCatcherContext
  4. Implementing MailCatcherAwareContext with your context. Target context must implement setMailCatcher(ClientInterface $mailcatcher). This method would be automatically called immediately after each context creation before each scenario. $mailcatcher will be preconfigured client based on your settings.
