# Introduction

Testbench Component is the de-facto package that has been designed to help you write tests for your Laravel package.

Before going through the rest of this documentation, please take some time to read the Package Development (opens new window) section of Laravel's own documentation, if you haven't done so yet.

# Installation

To install through composer, run the following command from terminal:

composer require --dev "orchestra/testbench"

You can also setup Testbench to auto discover packages by updating "scripts" on the package composer.json:

    "scripts": {
        "post-autoload-dump": [
            "@php ./vendor/bin/testbench package:discover --ansi"
        ]
    },
