Behat + Mink + Selenium 2 Stack

Important files

Here you find the DSL language definition for your phrases you can use in .feature files:

  • features/bootstrap/FeatureContext.php inherits from
  • vendor/behat/mink-extension/Behat/MinkExtension/Context/MinkContext.php


With Homebrew that gets really easy:

  • brew install selenium-server-standalone

before running bin/behat start up the selenium server:

  • java -jar /usr/local/opt/selenium-server-standalone/selenium-server-standalone-2.35.0.jar -p 4444
base_url: http://example.tld
show_cmd: open -a "Google Chrome" "%s"
javascript_session: 'selenium2'
browser_name: firefox # safari, googlechrome
goutte: ~
selenium2: ~

Feature: Search
In order to test something
As a website user
I need to be able to start a test
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"
