Mute and Unmute Model Observers With Unobserve

Mute and Unmute Model Observers With Unobserve

Unobserve is a Laravel package by Stephen Lewis to mute and unmute observers at will.

When testing Laravel applications, we frequently need to “silence” events, so as not to trigger additional side-effects. Laravel’s Event::fake method is useful, but muting a specific model observer is still problematic.

Unobserve takes care of that, making it easy to mute and unmute an observer at will.

The usage of this package is simple: you use the package’s CanMute trait on model observers:

namespace App\Observers;

use Monooso\Unobserve\CanMute;

class UserObserver
{
    use CanMute;
}

With the trait in place, you can now mute and unmute your observer:

UserObserver::mute();

UserObserver::unmute();
