How to create new user with verified email in development mode?

Hi, I’m new to Discourse and I already searched for I’m looking for.
I’m going to make some plugins and I need to create users to test it. I’m trying to creating users with temporary emails, but Discourse never send a email confirmation. It’s happening due to localhost? I don’t know.
I have followed this Beginners Guide to Install Discourse on Ubuntu for Development and my Discourse forum is running perfectly. I tried to create a user with RAILS_ENV=development bundle exec rake admin:create, but I can’t login since I have to confirm the email. How can I create a user with verified email? Thank you.

Did you run mailcatcher as specified in that topic?

When you do, it’ll receive email sent to it by your development install and you can view it in a web browser.

→ mailcatcher --http-ip 0.0.0.0
Starting MailCatcher
==> smtp://127.0.0.1:1025
/home/michael/.rvm/gems/ruby-2.6.2@discourse/gems/thin-1.5.1/lib/thin/server.rb:104: warning: constant ::Fixnum is deprecated
==> http://0.0.0.0:1080/
*** MailCatcher runs as a daemon by default. Go to the web interface to quit.

I didn’t know about it (the 0.0.0:1080 thing). Thank you for your quick answer.
Is “bundle exec sidekiq” necessary? What is this for?

Yep. It is for running background jobs, like sending email.

You can also login as any user in development mode using the following path:

/session/:username/become

So if you want to log in to a user with “test1” as a username your URL will look something like:

http://localhost:3000/session/test1/become
