Are you a fan of Pest PHP? I am excited to announce the new stunning updates coming to Pest PHP. The Savvy behind this great testing framework bringing simplicity to Unit testing has added some new excellent features, including higher-order expectations, ray() debugging integration, and a VS Code snippets extension for Pest PHP.
Higher Order Expectations
Today, we are proud to introduce “Higher Order Expectations” to @pestphp. 🪄
This feature allows you to create expectations on methods or properties of the original expectation value. 🤯

Here’s that before and after code based on the screenshot above:
- Fix Premiere Pro Playback too fast
- Approved Nysc Senate List – How to check your name
- FCE Obudu shortlisted candidates for NYSC 2021
- The Dawn of Microsoft windows 11 – what to expect
- NPower News Today 2021 June: Verification, Shortlist, NASIMS, Deployment,
// Before expect($user->first_name)->toEqual('Nuno'); expect($user->last_name)->toEqual('Maduro'); expect($user->withTitle('Mr'))->toEqual('Mr Nuno Maduro'); // After expect($user) ->first_name->toEqual('Nuno') ->last_name->toEqual('Maduro') ->withTitle('Mr')->toEqual('Mr Nuno Maduro');
This feature also works with array data as well:
expect(['name' => 'Nuno', 'companies' => ['Pest', 'Laravel']]) ->name->toEqual('Nuno') ->companies->toHaveCount(2)->each->toBeString
