Hey! You are currently looking at the documentation for Tinkerwell 2. The latest version of the documentation is available here.

Testing mode#

This mode is deprecated and will be removed in Tinkerwell v3

You can switch to the testing mode in Tinkerwell by either pressing Cmd/Ctrl+E or using the menu bar via Tinker Mode -> Testing.

The testing mode allows you to create and write PHPUnit test suites from within Tinkerwell.

Here's what a default test suite might look like:

 * Use this test class to easily start writing
 * PHPUnit tests.
class Tinkerwell extends Tests\TestCase {

  use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\DatabaseTransactions;
  public function test_it_works() {
    $response = $this->get('/');

Just like any other Tinkerwell mode, this one allows you to run within your local application context as well as via SSH - making it very easy to quickly write a test for your code. Or if you haven't used PHPUnit before, it's a great way to get started with writing your very first test - without having to setup anything.
