Integrates Laravel Dusk browser testing into Winter CMS, providing Winter CMS and plugin developers with the tools to run automated tests on a fully functional Winter CMS instance through a virtual browser.

Note: This plugin is intended to be used for development purposes only. Configured improperly, it can allow users to circumvent authentication and sign in as any user. We do not recommend that this plugin be added as a dependency for your own plugin.

Getting started

To install the plugin, you may install it through the Winter CMS Marketplace, or you may install it using Composer:

composer require --dev winter/dusk-plugin

Then, run the migrations to ensure the plugin is enabled:

php artisan winter:up

To run the browser tests, you must install the Chrome web-driver and have the Google Chrome browser installed on the machine running the tests. The web-driver can be installed by running the following command:

php artisan dusk:chrome-driver

Running the tests

By default, the browser tests are configured to run the tests against a website served by the in-built Laravel web server. You may start this server by running the following:

php artisan serve

To start the browser tests, run:

php artisan dusk

This will execute all available browser tests in all enabled plugins on your Winter CMS installation. If you would like to run the tests for one plugin only, you may add the plugin code as an argument:

php artisan dusk Acme.Blog

As a shortcut after running the tests, you may re-run the failed tests by executing the following command:

php artisan dusk:fails

Creating browser tests for your plugin

The Dusk plugin makes it a breeze to create browser tests for your own plugin.

Browser test classes should reside in the tests/browser folder of your plugin. Each test class file should ended with Test.php to indicate it is a class of test cases, and should extend the Winter\Dusk\Classes\BrowserTestCase class.

For example, a blog plugin may wish to create a BlogTest.php file with the following content:

<?php namespace Acme\Blog\Tests\Browser;

use Winter\Dusk\Classes\BrowserTestCase;

class BlogTest extends BrowserTestCase
    public function testPost()
        // the test to run

Each test method in the class should be prefixed with test to denote that it is a test case.

To run the browser tests for your plugin, simply run the following:

php artisan dusk Acme.Blog
