There’s a reason for the challenge. The Symfony project offers a tutorial modeled after the advent calendar: 1 exercise per day for 24 days ( This example also shows one handy symfony link helper: link_to_unless() will output a regular link_to() if the test given as the first argument is. A lot of developers learned symfony thanks to askeet, and many companies still use askeet as their main training material. But the askeet tutorial started to show.

Chris said on Dec 10, at This time, it’s the last one, when we test the handling of simple quotes. As we will use the command line a lot, it’s better to use a Unix-like OS, but if you run a Windows system, it will also work fine, you’ll just have to type a few commands in the cmd prompt.

Philip said on Dec 2, at The test has to do a request to the first question detail, and assume that some text of the answer is present. Some instructions refer to files or functions that do not exists. As the symfony file is executable, Unix users can replace all occurrences of ‘php symfony’ by ‘. The code in the SVN trunk and the site itself have been updated with these changes.

Post as a guest Name. That’s right, we will do it again. If you remember the day foura question can be displayed in the lists of questions and in the detail of a question.

You may recognize here the tutoria, test cases mentioned at the beginning of this tutorial. So, from now on, instead of using the fully qualified path to the symfony program, we will use the symfony shortcut. In between, if you want to keep in touch with the latest Jobeet news, don’t forget to subscribe to the symfony blog feed.

Don’t forget to remove the file from the web root directory afterwards. The extensive list of the assert methods can be found in the Simple Test documentation. If there is a problem, the output will give you hints on how to fix it.


If you don’t know it already, you are strongly advised to browse their documentationwhich is very clear and progressive.

If you would like to use tools like targzipor grep on Windows you can install Cygwin. When you develop an application, except if you develop directly on the production server, you need several environments:.

This autogenerated file is a stub for you to start. So far it has been fine except for the sytlesheet is not loading, please have a look at asmeet attached image.

But thanks to the Firefox Selenium extension, all it takes to create a test is to execute the test once in a recorded session. We will add a few unit tests for our Asleet library.

If you’re using the Windows version of Subversion, you’ll need a Windows path, e. Being inside the framework allows this object to bypass completely the http transport layer. Unit tests are supposed to test one case at a time, so we decompose the expected result of the text method into elementary cases.

In a few days, we will add some more AJAX interactions to it. If the base of data manipulation in the web has long been forms, today the AJAX techniques and usability enhancements can change the way an application is built. However, we corrected a few bugs and added one or two features that make askeet even easier to use like a better front page and voting thumbs showing the answers you already voted on.

This will only work if you properly defined the sf alias in your web server configuration, as explained during day one. Ive tried it like 3x now and same thing everytime. To install symfony, download the archive package found on the symfony website.


Jobeet: The new symfony advent calendar

We will examine three different ways to implement a simple web app test. The home page displays a list of questions, the detail of a question shows its answers, users have a profile askeft, and thematic lists are available from every page in sskeet sidebar. In this methodology, the tests are written before the function is written. We will see later on how to change the settings for an environment. Web applications are not all about objects that behave more or less like functions.

It is called Selenium and is better when employed with the Selenium Recorder extension for Firefox. As Selenium tests run in a real browser, they also allow you to test browser inconsistencies.

The objective of the day is to setup the development environment and display a page of the application in a web browser. However, some of them took me 3 to 4 hours.

But even without writing a single line of code, you will start understanding the benefits of using a framework like symfony, just by bootstrapping a new project. To ensure that comments stay relevant, they are closed for old posts.

This means that the browsing simulated by the sfTestBrowser is fast, and independent of the server configuration, since it does not use it. This means that if a non-authenticated user clicks on an ‘interested? That way, you can move the Jobeet project directory anywhere on your machine or another one, and it will just work. There’s a reason for the challenge.

GaryFx said on Dec 4, at These things are serious business. The test tutroial fail. To be sure that you understood how it works, check out how we implement the same mechanism for adding answers in chapter
