Laravel DUSK

Boost Your Laravel Testing with Dusk

Ugh, manual browser testing in Laravel is getting you down? Laravel, Dusk to the rescue! This built-in package is your secret weapon for effortless browser automation.

With Dusk, you can write expressive tests that mimic real user interactions. Say goodbye to repetitive clicking and form filling - Dusk can handle it all!

Here's Why You'll Love Dusk:

  1. Effortless Automation: Write tests that act like real users, streamlining your development workflow.
  2. Expressive Tests: Clear and concise code makes tests easy to understand and maintain.
  3. Faster Feedback: Automate repetitive tasks to catch bugs quicker and improve code quality.

Imagine this Scenario:

  • Testing a user registration flow can be a chore. But with Dusk, it's a breeze! You can:
  • Visit the registration page.
  • Fill in the form with valid data (think real user input ).
  • Submit the form and assert successful registration (e.g., confirmation message).

Sample Code Snippet:

namespace Tests\Browser;
use Laravel\Dusk\Browser;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\DatabaseMigrations;
use Tests\TestCase;
class UserRegistrationTest extends TestCase
    use DatabaseMigrations;

    public function test_user_can_register()
        $this->browse(function (Browser $browser) {
                ->type('name', 'John Doe')
                ->type('email', '')
                ->type('password', 'secret123')
                ->type('password_confirmation', 'secret123')
                ->assertSee('You have been successfully registered!');
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Test error handling for invalid data to ensure a robust system
