until now, I developed my Magento2 Modules in the app/code directory of a running magento2 instance. This is pretty easy and you can run your tests without having much to think about.

after reading this: Magento 2 as composer dev requirement for extensions, I wanted to try a more "clean" approach to develop a Module.

So I started by creating a new Project and pulled in all needed dependencies with composer.

While writing my first integration test i recognized that I'm missing the Testframework classes. For the first step, I just want to have the autocompletion in my IDE.

So my question is: Is there any possibility to install the Magento Integration Test Framework without having to install the whole mage2-base package? I couldn't find a composer package for this. (talking about this: https://github.com/magento/magento2/tree/develop/dev/tests/integration/framework/Magento/TestFramework)

Here is an example of what I'm trying to do (still a work in process - much potential for improvement)

The Magento Test Framework is available in its own repository. You can find instructions for using it here
