Counting DOM elements with integration tests

dom-count

When building out applications there are times when you may want to count the DOM elements on the page through your testing suite. Gunther Groenewege uses this regularly and shares a tip for adding a new method to TestCase.php that makes this simple.

After implementing, you can then write a test like this to verify you have the correct number:

public function it_shows_all_elements_of_the_blog()
{
    $this->visit('/blog')
    ->see('Welcome to my blog')
    ->countElements('article', 5)
    ->countElements('.sidebar .blogroll a', 7);
}

Check out his post for full implementation details.
