Upgrading Sylius the TDD Way: Exploring PhpSpec & Behat
May 02, 2017 @ 11:49:02

On the SitePoint PHP blog they've continued their series looking at upgrading Sylius, an e-commerce application based on Symfony, with the help of test-driven development methods to ensure nothing breaks along the way. These next two articles cover the use of PhpSpec and using Behat for the different types of testing.

Last time, we developed some new features on top of Sylius’ core to indicate which products and their variants are low on stock and need replenishing. Now, we move on to seeing our changes in the UI, which means we will need to do a bit of StoryBDD testing.

In [the third] part, [we] extend some core classes to indicate color-coded inventory status. First, we’ll deal with the back end part. In a followup post, we’ll use Behat and test the visual changes. Please follow the instructions in the previous post to get a working instance up and running.

In each of the tutorials they walk you through the changes you'll need to make on the Sylius side to test both the Inventory and Product functionality that already come with the package. Examples of each kind of test are included as well as the output from the example test runs.
