Replied to Livewire - Testing Nested Components

Thanks @gitwithravish. I was hoping to avoid having to use Dusk / Cypress / etc, as the single component testing for Livewire is so good it spoiled me. :)

Started a new Conversation Livewire - Testing Nested Components

Hey all,

Hoping for some guidance in how to go about testing livewire nested components (especially testing that page content has changed after emiting an event).

EG: In testing a standard component, we can do something like this:

 Livewire::test(CreatePost::class)
             ->assertDontSee('Hooray the title is foo and I called create!');            
	    ->set('title', 'foo')
            ->call('create')
	   ->assertSee('Hooray the title is foo and I called create!');

But how would we assert that the text popped up in a child component due to an event that was fired?

Or (and more saliently for my current issue), how would I test that the value in an input field has updated after emiting an event?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Commented on Comments Component Testing

Hey Andre, thanks so much for the course! Loving this, and have been a big fan since I bought your "Useful Laravel Packages" way back when!

One thought on having to use the mounted $post - I "solved" it as I was working through by putting a check for isset($post->comments), and I'm wondering if it makes sense to do a check for comments since the code seems to assume they will be there?

Commented on What We Are Refactoring

Hey Jeffrey - thanks so much for these videos (and for this site in general - you're a literal life changer with the material you've made available here!!!)

Question for you - I noticed in your tests here, you mixed using Model Factories and using FeatureCollection::create([]). Is there a heuristic you use to determine when to use which, or is it just "whatever's easiest when writing"? Any gotchas with eschewing the model factory?

Replied to Handling Hundreds Of Aliases / Ssl Certificates In Forge?

@warren32 - I did what all great programers do when they face a minor inconvenience, and abandoned the idea! :D

The project I was researching this for didn't end up taking off, and so I put my attentions elsewhere. Sorry I can't be more help!
