    Creating default content for easier testing on Drupal 8

    While working with Drupal 7 we had some development workflows that worked very well for us and now we want to adapt those workflows to the new major version of Drupal.

    One of this "development features" as you may call them was the possibility of having some predefined content that can be recreated at any time to test the site. For example you don't have to worry about creating new users that represent the different roles every time you set up a fresh site, they will be there.

    Test JavaScript interactions with Behat

    Following the series Mercè started and the talks I have been giving I wanted to write a bit more about Behat and some niceties that I learned on the way.

    One of the main points people get interested on Behat is not only because you can use natural language to describe and test your application but also because all the tests are able to run in a real browser.

    Let’s make an overview of the main pieces available to achieve a broader testing strategy.

    How to get started with Behat

    Automated testing is one of the resources that greatly facilitates the task of development and one of the tools we can use with good integration with Drupal is Behat. It's an open source framework for behavioral testing, and that means that the testing is done using the web as a user would do.

    One of its main strengths is its readability: it is written in natural language describing the behavior to be tested, and allows us to check at any time if our application behaves as expected.

    In Ymbra we find it especially useful to know if any new changes we have made to the code produces some regression in functionality, which can easily pass unnoticed and take some time to be detected.
