Console Tests
You can test what has been output to standard console during Masonite unit tests thanks to useful console assertions.
Output here is the standard output often named stdout. Error here is the standard error often named stderr.
External packages, prints in your code can output content in console (as output or error).
If you want to assert content output by a Masonite command you should use Commands Tests assertions instead.
