BDD Testing Tools Reviews

Good day everyone!

I am looking into using BDD with Elixir/Phoenix.
Would love to hear your reviews to the different BDD Testing Tools available in Elixir/Phoenix.
Thanks so much!


My personal opinion is that this community still has a long way to go before it can reach the maturity of other languages like Java and even Javascript when it comes to testing. If you come from one of those, being more open minded will be of huge help since the tooling is rather different.

Non the less, you will find some people here, like @peerreynders who not only disagree with me, but also are very knowledgeable in the area of testing. I would start by checking out some of his posts if you like digging.

However, I am not here to give you just a shovel with my opinion attached :smiley:
Let’s talk about tools!

There are a lot, but on the top of my head I really recommend you have a look at ElixirConf 2016 - Painless Test Driven Development with Elixir and Phoenix by Kat Tornwall.

You can also read some cool looking blogs:

And have a look at some of the very nice projects the community has in Github:

You can also have a look at some forum topics:

I know TDD is not the same as BDD, but I believe you can still take away something from those discussion.

Hope it helps!
