Automatic Facade’s coming to Laravel 5.4

Coming in Laravel 5.4 is a new feature that will allow you to use any class as a Facade on the fly. If you are not familiar with Laravel Facades here is what they are:

Facades provide a “static” interface to classes that are available in the application’s service container. Laravel ships with many facades which provide access to almost all of Laravel’s features. Laravel facades serve as “static proxies” to underlying classes in the service container, providing the benefit of a terse, expressive syntax while maintaining more testability and flexibility than traditional static methods.

Automatic Facade Example

In Taylor’s example from the announcement here is how it works:

namespace App;

class Zonda 
{
    public function zurf()
    {
        return ‘Zurfing’;
    }
}

Then, in the routes or controller:

use Facades\ {
    App\Zonda
};

Route::get('/', function () {
    return Zonda::zurf();
});
