Marcel Pociot:
Laravel TestTools (Chrome Extension)
Mar 22, 2016 @ 10:48:10

Marcel Pociot has a new post on his site introducing a new tool he's created allowing for the easier creation of tests for your Laravel application: the TestTools Chrome extension.

Testing a Laravel application really is an easy task - the "Integrated" package from Jeffrey Way, that later got merged into the core framework is fantastic and helps you with the otherwise cumbersome task of testing and interacting with your application. But still - are you actually using tests?

A lot of times people really love the idea of tests, but simply don't get their asses up to start using them in their own projects. That's why I created a chrome extension that hopefully saves you some time when you need to test your app

He also includes an animation or two of the Chrome extension in action, showing you what kind of results you can expect. He does point out that there's some limitations of the tool including the fact that you can't really test a single-page application with it as it relies on the normal browser interaction points, not Javascript events.
