This package provides a set of rules to help you manage your database state when running your E2E tests using Eloquent model factories.


You can install the package via composer:

composer require --dev canvural/laravel-e2e-routes

If you wish to customize some options, you may publish the config file with

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Vural\E2ERoutes\E2ERoutesServiceProvider"

This is the published config files contents. Here you can customize the route prefix which will be added to all the provided routes.Route names, and the namespace that all your models live in.


return [
    'prefix' => 'e2e',
    'name' => 'e2e-routes',
    'modelNamespace' => 'App\\',


For obvious reasons this package does not exposes the routes in the production environment. In other environments you can use the routes.

Reset database (GET e2e/reset)

You can use the http://localhost/e2e/reset route to reset your database. Under the hood this route makes a call to migrate:refresh Artisan command. Also if you wish to seed your database after migrating, you may call the route with seed query string attached. http://localhost/e2e/reset?seed

Creating models (POST e2e/{modelName})

This package uses your Eloquent model factories to create the data.

So, for example if you have a model called User and the associated UserFactory you can make a POST request to the http://localhost/e2e/user endpoint to create a User in your database. Also, newly created model will be returned as a response from the endpoint.

You can substitute user in the above example with any model you want. If the given model is not found, a 404 response will be returned. Also, if the model exists but a factory for that model does not exists a 404 response will be returned.

Overwriting attributes

Like the factory method, this package also provides you an ability to overwrite models attributes. Simply add a body to your request like so:

    'attributes' => [ 'name' => 'John Doe' ]

This will overwrite the name attribute.

Creating many models

You can specify how many model you want to create with

    'times' => 3

This will return an array containing 3 models.

Using states

If you defined some states for your factories, you can use them when you are making the request.

    'states' => ['withAddress']

This will create your model with the withAddress state. If the given state is not endpoint will return a 404 response.

All together

    'attributes' => [
        'name' => 'John Doe',
    'states' => ['withAddress'],
    'times' => 2

You can also combine the options like this.


composer test
