Installing TestBox

Last updated 11 months ago

TestBox can be downloaded from or can be installed via CommandBox CLI. CommandBox is our preferred approach for all package installations, updates and more.

// latest stable version
box install testbox --saveDev
// latest bleeding edge
box install testbox@be --saveDev

Note Please note the --saveDev flag which tells CommandBox that TestBox is a development dependency and not a production dependency.

This will install TestBox in a /testbox folder from where you called the command. You can also extract the download zip and place it anywhere you like and create a mapping called /testbox that points to testbox in the distribution folder, this is the most secure approach. However, you can just place it in the webroot if you like.

this.mappings[ "/testbox" ] = expandPath( "C:/frameworks/testbox/" );

You can also clone from Github and help us out :)

git clone git:// testbox
