php – Laravel Phpunit and Dusk with CircleCI

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

Has anybody been able to get Laravel Dusk working on CircleCI.

I can get my build working and tested with PHPUnit but it fails for Laravel Dusk.

I have a base Laravel installation with Dusk installed. When I get to the php artisan dusk command, I get the following error.

Error

1) Tests\Browser\ExampleTest::testBasicExample
Did not see expected text [Laravel] within element [body].
Failed asserting that false is true.

So it is starting the chromebrowser, but isn’t hitting the site.

I have tried running with Dusk’s chromedriver-linux, circleci’s chromedriver, not using php serve and quite the variety of other tweaks. So far, I haven’t had any luck.

Here is a link to the repo and the relevant files are posted below.

Here is my circle.yml file.

machine:
  hosts:
    dusk.dev: 127.0.0.1
  timezone: America/Los_Angeles
  services:
    - mysql
  environment:
      APP_ENV: testing
      APP_KEY: randomq2VjceHV2t1Usdskeksa9yUI6a
  post:
    - chromedriver:
        background: true
dependencies:
  override:
    - composer install --prefer-dist --no-interaction
  post:
    - mv .env.example .env

test:
  override:
    - vendor/bin/phpunit
#    - ./vendor/laravel/dusk/bin/chromedriver-linux:
#          background: true
    - sudo php artisan serve --host=localhost --port=80:
          background: true
    - php artisan dusk

.env.example that I copy to .env

Screenshot (pulled from circleci and not very helpful).

I found these articles which were helpful, but they did not work for me.
