To install Laravel Dusk on your project, Go to your terminal and navigate to the project root and all the following composer dependency by running the following command.

composer require --dev laravel/dusk

composer require laravel -dusk

Once the dependency is included. Now you can go ahead and install dusk on our project by running artisan command dusk:install

php artisan dusk:install

php artisan dusk:install

This command will generate and add Dusk scaffolding into the project. You will find a new directory named Browser created inside your tests directory.

laravel dusk browser directory

This also contains an ExampleTest.php which contains an example dusk test.


namespace Tests\Browser;

use Tests\DuskTestCase;
use Laravel\Dusk\Browser;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Testing\DatabaseMigrations;

class ExampleTest extends DuskTestCase
     * A basic browser test example.
     * @return void
    public function testBasicExample()
        $this->browse(function (Browser $browser) {

You can run the dusk tests by running

php artisan dusk

If for some reason you encounter an error with message "There are no commands defined in the "dusk" namespace." , this means that the dusk is not properly installed. Try re-installing it.

Also if for some reason the default Dusk scaffolding that contains the Browser directory with sub-folders such as Components, Console, Screenshot etc. is not generated for you, or if you accidentally delete some file. You can re-generate the scaffolding by running

php artisan dusk:install

This was all about dusk installation. Next, you can learn How to generate a new dusk test.
