Install Mink and Mink Extension for Behat Projects

Earlier we have discussed Mink. There is one more library Behat MinkExtension, Which is an integration layer between Behat 3.0+ and Mink 1.4+ and it provides:

  • Additional services for Behat (Mink, Sessions, Drivers).
  • Behat\MinkExtension\Context\MinkAwareContext which provides a Mink instance for your contexts.
  • Base Behat\MinkExtension\Context\MinkContext context which provides base step definitions and hooks for your contexts or subcontexts. Or it could be even used as context on its own.

$ composer require --dev behat/mink
