If you want to run seeders before each test you can use the artisan command in each of your test methods.

bookmark_borderWacken 2018 Band Parser

Today I decided to write a quick script to parse the bands who are confirmed for the Wacken Open Air 2018 festival. I am still not sure if I will do much else with it, but thinking it could be interesting to improve the code to send an email every time a new band is added, what do you think?

The repo for the project -> https://github.com/dansku/wacken_parser

The response is a JSON file like:

[  
  {  
    "bandAddedOn":"06.08.2017",
    "bandUrl":"http://www.wacken.com/en/...",
    "bandName":"Amorphis",
    "bandImage":"http://www.wacken.com/....png"
  }
]
