In this article I am going to show you a technique I used recently to mock a relatively simple external service for functional tests in Drupal 8.
Inheriting from Symfony (in principle but not implementation), Drupal 8 allows us to define certain services as lazy. Why? Well why the hell not?!
Sometimes, our services get big. Not necessarily in the number of things they do (hopefully not) but in the time it takes for them to get instantiated. As you know, when we define a service and make it a dependency of something else, the service container will instantiate that service and inject it where it is needed. And this happens whether on that particular request that service is used or not.
