Carbon is an excellent library to work with time in PHP projects. The Spatie\TestTime\TestTime class contains a few functions that under the hood manipulate the time that's considered the current time by Carbon.

// the flow of time is frozen
TestTime::freeze();

// we're now one year in the future
TestTime::addYear();

// will report the real current year + 1
$year = (new Carbon())->format('Y');

Installation

You can install the package via composer:

composer require spatie/test-time

Usage

You can freeze the time with:

TestTime::freeze();

Alternatively you can pass in a carbon instance that will be used as the current time.

TestTime::freeze($carbonInstance);

You can also pass a format and time.

TestTime::freeze('Y-m-d', '2019-06-12');

You can progress the time with any of the carbon functions starting with add or sub.

TestTime::addMinute();

TestTime::subHours(5);

// you can also chain calls
TestTime::addMonth(3)->addYear();

Testing

composer test
