Using wp-browser with Codeception 4.0

Codeception version 4.0, while still being compatible with PHP 5.6 and wp-browser, did break its structure into discrete modules.

If you want to use wp-browser with Codeception version 4.0+ you will need to make sure you've got all the required packages.
Add the following requirements in your composer.json file, in the require-dev section:

  "require-dev": {
    "lucatume/wp-browser": "^3.0",
    "codeception/module-asserts": "^1.0",
    "codeception/module-phpbrowser": "^1.0",
    "codeception/module-webdriver": "^1.0",
    "codeception/module-db": "^1.0",
    "codeception/module-filesystem": "^1.0",
    "codeception/module-cli": "^1.0",
    "codeception/util-universalframework": "^1.0"

You might not need all of them depending on the modules you use in your suites, but this will cover all the modules for this project.

The project provides a number of modules to ease the testing of WordPress projects; you can find out more in the modules section of the documentation.
Here's a quick example acceptance test you can write:

// tests/acceptance/PrivatePostsCept.php
$I->haveManyPostsInDatabase(3, ['post_title' => 'Test post {{n}}', 'post_status' => 'private']);

$I->loginAs('subscriber', 'secret');
$I->see('Nothing found');

$I->loginAs('editor', 'secret');
$I->see('Test post 0');
$I->see('Test post 1');
$I->see('Test post 2');

This is just a bite though, find out more in the documentation.
