Unit Testing

Zoomed in.

Unit and Acceptance/Functional folders.

Can trigger tests just on one folder.

** extend PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase **

public function test_product_has_a_name

  $product = new Product('Fallout 4');

  $this->assertEquals($product->name,'Fallout 4');

** DRY **

protected $product;

public function setUp()
  $this->product = new Product('Fallout 4',59);


More Unit Testing

Just testing that functions work.


Testing Eloquent

Integration Testing

Now need to extend TestCase because we are using Laravel.

function it_fetches_trending_articles
  // Given - set up the world
  //use ModelFactory - can create more than one
  // When
  $articles = Article::trending();
  // Then
  $this->assertEquals($mostPopular->id, $articles->first()->id);

Every test should assume the same world, so don’t keep adding to the db.

use DatabaseTransactions

This will begin and rollback!

Maybe I can use instanteof() in my factories.
