Awarded Best Reply on Cypress And Laravel - Testing Principles Questions

Hi @longestdrive

Jeffrey Way creates a special endpoint for this in the video I linked below. Do note that you need to protect these routes to only exist in your testing environment.

In your case, you could create a special endpoint which also accepts the role of a user and creates that user in the database.

The video gets into endpoints at around 19 minutes: https://laracasts.com/series/whatcha-working-on/episodes/39

In fact, this is how the laracasts/cypress helper commands work as well. Check out the vendor directory.

Awarded Best Reply on How To Implement Custom Ad Codes Option In Laravel App - Admin Panel

@HARSHITPEER - Ah, I see. Are you familiar yet with Redis? https://laracasts.com/series/learn-laravel-and-redis-through-examples

You can also use a different cache driver if you’d like, and cache all the ad codes daily (for example), check the Laravel documentation https://laravel.com/docs/5.8/cache

Replied to Cypress & Laravel - Persist User Login

@longestdrive What is your specific reason to be able to preserve the logged in user across multiple tests? In general, it is best practice to keep each test separated (no overlapping sessions).

My advice would be to group all tests that require a logged in user and use the beforeEach cypress method to write the logic to log in a user once.

Replied to Laravel Friendly Devops/sysadmin Managed AWS Infrastructure Services

I would go with Laravel Forge, they also provide support for Amazon servers.

Replied to Dispatch A Simple Function

@mohammedassafly It depends on what is returned by your "someFunction".

The code you showed does not provide the answer to why you're getting the error here, although $this->{$func}($request) would be syntactically preferred over $this->$func($request).
