Building Advance Blog on Laravel 5.5 with TDD mode #5 User can create Post

kris profile image kris Originally published at Medium on ・4 min read

in this episode, I’ve created a comment feature in this episode, it’s work same old but different model

in this episode , I’ve create Post if you read my previous episode it’s easy to start

let’s begin

create feature test name test_a_user_can_create_post and quickly write down user story

public function test_a_user_can_create_post(){
         // Given a Guest
          $guest = factory('App\User')->create();
          // make a guest become User
          $user = $this->be($guest);
         // And Giving Post object 
         $post = factory('App\Post')->make();
         // When the user create Post
          $this->post('/blog/'.$post->id,$post->toArray());
         // When their visit
           $this->get('/blog/'.$post->id); 
         //Then their should see post
        $this->assertSee($post->title);

}

save and run test

should fail

but should throw Route not found exception not skip them

solution in Laravel 5.5 we have new method

Toggle Exception Handling Within Your Tests: > When writing tests for your application, you may encounter situations when you don’t want Laravel to automatically catch and transform an exception. You can now disable exception handling on a test-by-test basis, via the $this->withoutExceptionHandling() method call.

let’s fix it

public function test_a_user_can_create_post(){
       $this->withoutExceptionHandling(); 
         // Given a Guest
          $guest = factory('App\User')->create();
          // make a guest become User
          $user = $this->be($guest);
         // And Giving Post object 
         $post = factory('App\Post')->make();
         // When the user create Post
         $this->post('/post',$post->toArray());
         // When their redirect to post
         $response = $this->get('/blog/'.$post->id);
         // Then their should see post
         $response->assertSee($post->title);

}

test again

ok let’s create Route

Create Route

open route/web.php and fill

Route::post('/post','PostsController@store');

test again

Create Endpoint

open PostController and fill function store

public function store(Request $request){
       $post = Post::create([
            'user_id'=>auth()->id(),
            'title' =>$request->title,
            'body' =>$request->body

        ]);
     return redirect('/blog/'.$post->id);
    }

and try again

and we should making sure guest can’t submit a post

with add auth middleware to PostController

next I’ve create test

public function test_a_guest_can_not_create_post(){
        $this->withoutExceptionHandling(); 
         // Given a Guest
          $guest = factory('App\User')->create();
          // And Giving Post object 
           $post = factory('App\Post')->make();
         // When the user create Post
         $this->post('/post',$post->toArray());
    }

run test

ok this as expected .let’s make it green

public function test_a_guest_can_not_create_post(){
        $this->withoutExceptionHandling(); 
        // expect thrown exception
 $this->expectException('Illuminate\Auth\AuthenticationException');
         // Given a Guest
          $guest = factory('App\User')->create();
          // And Giving Post object 
           $post = factory('App\Post')->make();
         // When the user create Post
         $this->post('/post',$post->toArray());

    }

it’s green

ok we complete in under the hood

Create Form

next we create a frontend form for submit post

open route/web.php and fill this

Route::view('/blog/create','post.create');

create file name post/create.blade.php and grab code from post/index.blade.php

paste in this

and fill in panel-body with

<form method="post action="/post">
        {{ csrf_field() }}
        <div class="form-group">
       <label for="title">Title</label>
      <input type="text" name="title" class="form-control"/>
          </div>
             <div class="form-group">
                          <label for="body">Body</label>
   <textarea name="body" rows="8" class="form-control"></textarea>
                      </div>
        <input type="submit" class="btn btn-block btn-primary">
                   </form> 
                   </div>

and result like this

save and goto /blog/create

then try fill form and submit

https://medium.com/media/3bd64cf3d11d64231e6a875331522891/href

got redirect with middleware and we should include this view to middleware

Route::view('/blog/create','post.create')->middleware('auth');

when we access create post page then still redirect to login

then still try again

Yeah still work then we should create test for making sure a guest can access post create page

create test_a_guest_can_not_access_create_post_page

and fill code like this

public function test_a_guest_can_not_access_create_post_page(){
        $this->get('/blog/create')
            ->assertRedirect('/login');
    }

for making sure we run test individual

now we have form for creating post
