Build Status

The remote API driver extends the popular Drupal Extention library to support running authenticated Behat tests against remote Drupal sites. Please note that there are two main components to this project:

  1. The Drupal Remote API Driver - This extends the existing functionality of the drupalextention project and translates supported steps (e.g. create nodes, users, etc.) into appropriate REST requests to the remote Drupal site. See "currently supported features" below. This component is only required on the site where tests will be initiated.
  2. The Drupal Remote API Client - This is a Drupal module that leveradges the RestWS module and adds various helper functionality that the driver needs in order to work propertly. It is only required on the remote sites that will be tested.

If you are not already familiar with Behat or the Drupal Extention library, you might want to head on over and review the detailed documentation.

Please Note: This package requires Behat version 2 and DrupalExtention version 1.


If anything is unclear or you have any questions or comments, please open an issue or contact me directly. While this library is functional, it's still a work in progress. Review, feedback, and contributions are welcome.
