Drupal.org becomes more awesome as we build and deploy features that help us collaborate and communicate better. Toward this end, we've adopted the Behat, a PHP-based implementation of Behavior Driven Development (BDD). BDD does two important things:
- It helps ensure that the introduction of features doesn't break existing functionality.
- It documents how the features of Drupal.org work in plain language.
The purpose of this page is to clarify Drupal.org-specific details and decisions. As of September 8, 2012, we've made tentative decisions on many fronts. To participate in the process, join us in the issue queue: http://drupal.org/project/issues/doobie
- Behat Documentation: http://behat.org/
- Doobie, the BDD Project: http://drupal.org/project/doobie
- What's in a story: http://dannorth.net/whats-in-a-story/
Looking into BDD, you'll discover more than one syntax for writing Feature: section. For the sake of consistency, we've chosen to follow the syntax outlined in the Behat documentation at http://docs.behat.org/guides/1.gherkin.html
