  2. In the projectdir, create a file called behat.yml. Below is the minimal configuration. Many more options are covered in the Full documentation

          # Guzzle is used as HTTP client. You can configure the Guzzle request
          # options by setting `browserkit_http.guzzle_request_options`. For
          # instance the following configuration will disable SSL peer verification:
