BrowserKit Component

BrowserKit simulates the behavior of a web browser.

The component only provide an abstract client and does not provide any "default" backend for the HTTP layer.


For a simple implementation of a browser based on an HTTP layer, have a look at Goutte.

For an implementation based on HttpKernelInterface, have a look at the Client provided by the HttpKernel component.

You can run the unit tests with the following command:

$ cd path/to/Symfony/Component/BrowserKit/
$ composer.phar install
$ phpunit
