A helper to control the flow of time
Carbon is an excellent library to work with time in PHP projects. The
Spatie\TestTime\TestTime class contains a few functions that under the hood manipulate the time that's considered the current time by Carbon.
// the flow of time is frozen TestTime::freeze(); // we're now one year in the future TestTime::addYear(); // will report the real current year + 1 $year = (new Carbon())->format('Y');
You can install the package via composer:
composer require spatie/test-time
You can freeze the time with:
Alternatively you can pass in a carbon instance that will be used as the current time.
You can also pass a format and time.
You can progress the time with any of the carbon functions starting with
TestTime::addMinute(); TestTime::subHours(5); // you can also chain calls TestTime::addMonth(3)->addYear();
