Creating a sample laravel 5.2 Project with PHPUnit
First we need to install the laravel.
Commonly laravel is installing using Composer. So if you are not installed the composer first we need to install it in your system.
We can install the composer from the url : https://getcomposer.org/download/
After installing the composer take the Terminal and go to the directory where you need to create the project.
Now from the terminal run the following command and it will create the laravel project in the 'Student' directory.
composer create-project laravel/laravel Student
Wait for some time and it will install the laravel for you.
Now the installation is finished and take the url http://localhost:8080/
It will show the 'Student' directory there and take it and then take 'Public' folder. Now you can see the 'Laravel 5' welcome screen on the browser.
Now we are going to create a database for storing the students info.
Take the phpmyadmin (Hopefully it is in http://127.0.0.1:8080/pma/) and create a database named Students.
Now we need to fill the database details in the .env file
Now we need to create a migration for creating the table in the database.
For it run the following command from the terminal from the students directory:
php artisan make:migration create_students_table
This will create a migration file in the database/migrations folder.
Open it and update the up() function with the following content.
Schema::create('students', function(Blueprint $table)
Fill the down() function with the following content
Then from the terminal run the command :
php artisan migrate
This will create the students table in the Students database. Please check it.
