Codeception 1.6.2: Subdomains Support

Published on May 25, 2013

Looks like a good time for a new release. We decided to stick to features that was asked a lot and to merge all uesful PRs that were submitted.

One of them is Subdomain support. If you were wondering how to deal with subdomains of your app, we have a new amOnSubdomain command for you. It will prepend a subdomain name to your current url you put in config.

// configured url is
// moves to

But… well, this would be much easier to implement by anyone if only you had an option to dynamically pass configuration to modules. And yes, it’s also possible now. You can use new _reconfigure method of a module. In helper you can access it and replace the keys with required values.

$this->getModule('Selenium2')->_reconfigure(array('browser' => 'chrome'));

In the end of a test, all changed options will be rolled back to configuration values.

Some new nice improvements and fixes from our contributors:

  • Cookie methods like getCookie, setCookie can now be used in acceptance tests (thanks igorsantos07)
  • Curl options are now correctly passed to PhpBrowser (thanks to mrtimp)
  • Also X-Requested-With is cleared in Ajax requests of PhpBrowser (thanks to vinu)
  • Non-strict matching for links (with normalize-space XPath) was proposed by brutuscat.
  • Symfony1 module fixed (by walkietalkie)
  • Lots of small fixes and tests by Ragazzo.
  • fix to haveInDatabase method by davert.
