Before installing Python Behave, the pre-requisites should be installed on the machine. The official support for Behave is for Python 2 but it works perfectly fine with Python 3.x. For demonstration of automated browser testing with Behave and Selenium, we would be using the test machine with Windows 10 operating system.

Python for Windows can be downloaded from here. The IDE (Integrated Development Environment) I’ll use is PyCharm (Community Edition) which can be downloaded from the PyCharm website.

As the Selenium framework is used with Python Behave, you also need to install the Selenium WebDriver for the web browser on which Selenium test automation is performed. Selenium WebDriver for popular web browsers can be downloaded from the following locations:

  • Opera: https://github.com/operasoftware...
  • Firefox: https://github.com/mozilla/gecko...
  • Chrome: http://chromedriver.chromium.org...
  • Internet Explorer: https://github.com/SeleniumHQ/se...
  • Microsoft Edge: https://blogs.windows.com/msedge...

After installing the required prerequisites completed, you can now install Python Behave framework. There are a number of ways using which you can install Python Behave on your machine.

1.Using pip command: Execute the following command on the terminal

pip install behave

2.Using the Python Behave source distribution Once the behave source distribution is unpacked, enter the newly created “behave-< version >” directory and execute the following command:

python setup.py install

3.Using the Github repository: Run the following command on the terminal to install the latest version of behave from the GitHub repository.

pip install git+https://github.com/behave/behave
