Drupal core currently has a number of different types of tests that can be run
using PHPUnit:
- unit
- kernel
- functional
- functional-javascript
- build
These are organized into PHPUnit test suites. You can run one test suite or many
in combination by using `--testsuite` on the command line:
./vendor/bin/phpunit -c /path/to/your/phpunit.xml --testsuite unit
./vendor/bin/phpunit -c /path/to/your/phpunit.xml --testsuite functional,functional-javascript
These can be combined with groups and filters:
./vendor/bin/phpunit -c /path/to/your/phpunit.xml --testsuite build --group Composer
./vendor/bin/phpunit -c /path/to/your/phpunit.xml --testsuite build --exclude-group Build
./vendor/bin/phpunit -c /path/to/your/phpunit.xml --testsuite unit --filter ClassTest::testMethod

## Running Functional JavaScript tests
## Setup for running Functional JavaScript tests

\Drupal\FunctionalJavascriptTests\WebDriverTestBase base class in the same way
