Valorin's Test Suite Artisan Command for Laravel 4.

IMPORTANT: Vest does not support Laravel 5, and I don't think there is enough interest or benefit in it for me to do so.

Vest is a simple package I wrote to allow me to re-use my Laravel 4 test suite across all of my projects without needing to worry about keeping it in sync.

I've made very little effort to make it massively customizable, since it's designed by me, for me. If it doesn't work for you, either write your own or submit a pull request with changes and we can discuss your needs :-)


Add the package to your application with composer:

composer require valorin/vest

Add the VestServiceProvider service provider to the providers list in ./app/config/app.php:

'providers' => array(

Publish the default configuration:

./artisan config:publish valorin/vest

Edit the configuration file at:



Run the vest command in the testing environment:

./artisan --env=testing vest
