Behat integration for Acquia BLT

v1.4.0 2023-04-05 15:44 UTC

This package is auto-updated.

Last update: 2023-12-16 15:31:41 UTC


This is an Acquia BLT plugin providing integration with the Behat test framework.

This plugin provides a set of commands in the tests namespace that use these frameworks to run automated tests on your Drupal site.

This plugin is community-supported. Acquia does not provide any direct support for this software or provide any warranty as to its stability.

This plugin is provided solely as a backwards-compatible shim for customers upgrading from BLT 11. We recommend that anyone implementing new tests on a Drupal project use PHPUnit instead of Behat. PHPUnit now even supports Gherkin syntax if you prefer to preserve your human-readable Gherkin features:
