spqa left a reply on PHPUnit Checking Errors Incorrect In PHPStorm?

Thank you, viktorivanov. It's work

spqa started a new conversation Hidden Field In API Resource Using Conditional Attributes?

Now, I'm trying to building API Resource and I wanna hide some kind of data.

For example, I want to hide attribute 'description' only in MangaCollection. I mean I just only wanna hide this attribute in Collection, not Resource. Because Collection be called from Resource but I don't want to hide it in Resource.


class MangaResource extends JsonResource
     * Transform the resource into an array.
     * @param  Request  $request
     * @return array
    public function toArray($request)
        return [
            'id' => $this->id,
            'name' => $this->name,
            'status' => $this->status,
            'view' => $this->name,
            'slug' => $this->slug,
            'avatar' => $this->avatar,
            'description' => $this->description,
            'created_at' => (string) $this->created_at,
            'updated_at' => (string) $this->updated_at,
            'authors' => AuthorResource::collection($this->authors),
            'categories' => CategoryResource::collection($this->categories)


class MangaCollection extends ResourceCollection
     * Transform the resource collection into an array.
     * @param  Request $request
     * @return AnonymousResourceCollection
    public function toArray($request)
        return MangaResource::collection($this->collection);


class MangaController extends Controller
     * Display a collection of the mangas.
     * @return MangaCollection
    public function index()
        return new MangaCollection(Manga::paginate(10));

     * Display the specified manga.
     * @param Manga $manga
     * @return MangaResource
    public function show(Manga $manga)
        return new MangaResource($manga);

Could consider using Conditional Attributes to solve this problem, anyone can help me, please ?

spqa started a new conversation PHPUnit Checking Errors Incorrect In PHPStorm?

I'm trying to follow the topic Build the forum with TDD approach. You know that PHPUnit is very important to display errors when we running a TestCase.

The problem is when I'm running test by command line is work but when I'm trying to run the test with PHPStorm, it works incorrectly.

This code:

    /** @test */
    public function an_authenticated_user_only_favorite_reply_once_time()

        $reply = create(Reply::class);

        // Like a reply multiple time (store favorites)
        $this->post('replies/' . $reply->id . '/favorites');
        $this->post('replies/' . $reply->id . '/favorites');

        $this->assertCount(1, $reply->favorites);

and PHPStorm message show:

C:\laragon\bin\php\php-7.1.12-Win32-VC14-x64\php.exe E:/Coding/PG/ATeam/forum/vendor/phpunit/phpunit/phpunit --no-configuration --filter "/::an_authenticated_user_only_favorite_reply_once_time( .*)?$/" Tests\Feature\FavoritesTest E:\Coding\PG\ATeam\forum\tests\Feature\FavoritesTest.php --teamcity
PHPUnit 7.0.2 by Sebastian Bergmann and contributors.

Failed asserting that actual size 0 matches expected size 1.

Anyone can tell me why?
