Quick StartΒΆ

Welcome to Behat! Behat is a tool to close the Behavior Driven Development (BDD) communication loop. BDD is a methodology for developing software through continuous example-based communication between developers and a business, which this application supports. This communication happens in a form that both the business and developers can clearly understand - examples. Examples are structured around the Context-Action-Outcome pattern and are written in a special format called Gherkin. The fact that Gherkin is very structural makes it very easy to automate and autotest your behaviour examples against a developing application. Automated examples are then actually used to drive this application development TDD-style.
