Simple routing to use named pages instead of urls.

FeatureContext step definitions:

  • Given I am on the :page page
  • Given I am on the :page page on :device
  • Given I am on the :page with the following params:
  • Then I should be on the :arg1 page

Features in Genesis\TestRouting\RoutingContxt class:

  • ::getRoute() accepts a callback function that allows manipulation of url before returning final url.
  • ::setAllRoutesFromExternalSource() provides a bridge for other routing mechanisms in place. You can re-use your existing application routing configuration.
  • ::registerFile() register an external file containing all your route definitions. This call is typically contained in one of your context constructor files.

Features in RouteAssert class:

  • ::page() assert whether a page resolved correctly to a url.
  • ::uri() assert that you are on the correct uri.
  • ::queryParams() assert that the a url holds the correct query params.

Release detail:

Major: Released first version of test routing. Minor: Assertion library added. New calls for building up URL's. Patch: Fix callable method break if no overriding method is defined.

        pretty: true
        - RoutingContext:
            routesFilePath: ./features/bootstrap/Routing.php # relative path.
            windowSizeDevice: desktop # set to default resolution for device on visit.
            windowSizeRes: 1280x1024 # set to custom resolution on visit.

The routesFilePath should be a php file containing an array of routes like so:

return [
    'home page' => '/home',
    'about us' => '/about-us'

You will be using the names assigned to routes to reference them in the feature files using the step definitions provided.

PHP - Adding a route

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;

Routing::addRoute('home page', '/home');

Get a route back

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;

$route = Routing::getRoute('home page');

Output: /home

Register the file that contains all your routing.

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;


More advanced form of get

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;

$route = Routing::getRoute('home page', function ($url) {
    return $url . '?testing=1';

Output: /home?testing=1

Re-using your application routing configuration

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;
use MyApp\Routing\AppRouter;

$router = new AppRouter($routes);
// As long as it is an iterable, it will do.
$routes = $router->getAll();

Routing::setAllRoutesFromExternalSource($routes, function ($route, $index) {
    // $route contains individual elements contained within routes. Just return the name and the url.
    return [$route->getName() => $route->getUrl()];

Note: You can bypass the above by using the file data directly most of the time.

Integrating with the behat-sql-extension

Two ways to do this, either using the method below or extending the RoutingContext file to provide just the callback while retaining all the rest of the features:

Method 1:


use Genesis\SQLExtensionWrapper\BaseProvider;
use Genesis\TestRouting\RoutingContext as Routing;

 * RoutingContext class.
class RoutingContext extends Routing
     * @Override The bit that will replace ids n stuff within our routes.
     * @return callable
    protected function getCallable(): callable
        $sqlApi = BaseProvider::getApi();

        return function ($url) use ($sqlApi) {
            return $sqlApi->get('keyStore')->parseKeywordsInString($url);

Then register the above RoutingContext in behat.yml instead of the one provided by the extension.

Method 2:

use Genesis\TestRouting\Routing;

$url = Routing::getRoute($pageName, function ($url) use ($sqlApi) {
    // Parse out any database keywords with their values from the keystore for dynamic URLs.
    return $sqlApi->get('keyStore')->parseKeywordsInString($url);
