Now that you know what you will test, let us start with writing our first unit test. Head over to the test folder and create a new file called quotes_api_test. You will be writing your first unit test in this file, and as the name suggests, you will be testing the quotes API. But before we start testing the API, let us first write a simple test to see how the test works.

void main() {

import 'package:flutter_test/flutter_test.dart';
void main() {
  test('Simple Test', () {
    expect(1, 1);
flutter test test/quotes_api_test.dart
void main() {
  test('Simple Test', () {
    expect(1, 2);
test('quotes json test', () {
  final quote = Quotes(1, '', '');

  expect(quote.id, 1);
  expect(quote.author, '');
  expect(quote.quote, '');
