What is the quickest way to dump a node to insert into a test case?


You can use drush:

drush ev "var_export(\Drupal\node\Entity\Node::load(123)->toArray());"

and delete stuff you don't need like uuid, revision_*, ...

By the way if you are wondering why does this output old style array syntax, see https://stackoverflow.com/questions/24316347/how-to-format-var-export-to-php5-4-array-syntax

... or paste the output into your IDE and configure it to autocorrect the format.
