For local installations of composer you must call it like this: The default one is Sahi is a new JS browser controller, that fast replaced the old Selenium testing suite. This is our testing framework, which will be used to make our assertions. The recommended way to install Mink with all its dependencies is through Composer:

Some Other Posts Up and running: This is our testing framework, which will be used to make our assertions. There a several things we can test on this page, and before we begin testing we need to define exactly what will be tested. Running the Tests Now we have written our tests, we need to run them in order to get the results. Writing the Tests As all of these tests are on our homepage, we can put our tests into the HomePageTest.
With this you can create remote connections to Selenium in BrowserStack directly from your running Mink code. Planning Our Tests For the purpose of this tutorial I have created a very basic page which we can test, this page can be found at http: Now we have written our tests, we need to run them in order to get the results. The first thing to notice is that our class extends our MinkTestCase template, meaning we can just write a very simple method to open a web page without the need to do any setup.
So, in order to test that our beehat application behaves correctly, we need a way to simulate this interaction between the browser and the web application in our tests. These tests check that the core functionality of the site works as expected the feelings select box as well as checking the page header is correct.
PHP Automated Functional Testing Using Mink
Nothing is being asserted here, but you should see the Chrome window open, visit my website and then close again. PHP Automated Functional Testing Using Mink Nov 22nd George Webb Functional testing involves testing an application or website from the perspective of a user, through the user interface, ensuring that the core functionality works as expected.
This first uses the find method on the page to retrieve the h1 tag and then the getText method on the h1 element to get the header text. Once again, you can find all of the above code samples at https: However, this is often overlooked by developers due to the overhead of writing these automated tests initially, despite the amount of problems and time it can save further down the road.
Functional testing involves testing an application or website from the perspective of a user, through the user interface, ensuring that the core functionality works as expected. Note Notice, that the first argument of SahiDriver is always a browser name, supported by Sahi. Run Sahi proxy mjnk your test suites you can start this proxy during system startup:.
It will run the installer, which will guide you through the installation process. Sahi is one of a number of popular automation tools, another popular one is Selenium.
Welcome to the Mink documentation!
SahiDriver — Mink documentation
Run composer install to get the dependencies. The second test method tests the select box, and contains multiple assertions.
By combining Mink with a testing framework such as PHPUnit, and a browser driver such sahhi Sahi or Selenium, it can be used as a very powerful functional testing tool.
It has a GUI installer for each popular operating system out there and is able to control every systems browser through a special bundled proxy server. This is the Mink driver for the Sahi browser automation tool. Mink makes it easy for us to change our browser controller, and we can easily switch to a similar one such as Selenium or a headless emulator such as Goutte. Once installed, you can run sahi using the command line or the GUI tool it installs.
The recommended way to install Mink with all its mini is through Composer: As a next step you could try to automate the running of the test suite in multiple browsers and devices, to test that the site behaves the same in each.
Require the appropriate dependencies: You should fill this with null if you want Sahi to start your browser automatically or with some unique string if you want to control an already started browser. These are a very straightforward set of tests to give an insight as to what is possible with Mink.
All the code used in the following examples is available at https:
