Commented on Reduce Duplication

Would be nice if the model extends request and make chained calls like this:

$article->validate()->save();

Replied to API GET By Email

public function show(User $user)
{
    return $user;
}

This by default translates to

public function show( $id)
{
    return User::where ('id', $id);
}

so, if you want to load the user by email, do this:

public function show( $user_email)
{

     return User::where('user_email', $user_email)->firstOrFail();

}

Replied to XML To PDF

Use this package. It uses DomPDF, which in convert HTML to pdf. In Theory, it should deal with XML as well.

Started a new Conversation PHPUnit With Laravel 5.8

Trying to follow along https://laracasts.com/series/phpunit-testing-in-laravel series, with Laravel 5.8 but so far it's a nightmare. Functions like $this->visit(); nolonger exist. I found online I can use laravel/browser-kit-testing (v5.1.2), but this doesn't seem to work as well, complaining that:

ExampleTest contains 1 abstract method and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (Laravel\BrowserKitTesting\TestCase::createApplication)

Which I can obviously do, but that makes me modify that vendor code, and is not a good approach.

Any ideas?

Thank you
