Repositories and Laravel
A few weeks ago, I stumbled into repositories as a way to test with PHPUnit. The idea is amazing - easily mock your database just by changing an App::bind to something else in your tests. It has been a few days since I started trying to use repositories. So far, I have made little progress. There isn't anywhere where there (mouthful) are concrete tutorials or a solid base to copy. So I'm going to have to keep digging. Think I'll write a tutorial once I've spent hours trawling through code and searching Google, to help other people in a similar situation.
Until then, I'll just be getting frustrated at seeming simple things.
Edit: I think I've pretty much solidly worked out Laravel Repositories now. Going to keep going, make a few more, then maybe make a tutorial tomorrow.
