Laravel 5.7 Callable Action URLs

Laravel 5.7 Callable Action URLs

A new callable-like syntax for action URLs is coming to Laravel 5.7 thanks to Sebastian De Deyne! You might also hear this feature called “tuple notation” or a “callable array syntax” for URL generation actions.

Here’s how it works starting in 5.7:

<?php

$url = action([PostsController::class, 'index']);

Currently (as of Laravel 5.6) the action helper only supports the following style that you’re probably already familiar with:

<?php

$url = action('UserController@profile', ['id' => 1]);

One benefit of the new callable array syntax format is the ability to navigate to directly to the controller if you use a text editor or IDE that supports code navigation.

You can find it in the upcoming documentation for URL Generation, and if you’re interested in the code changes made to support this feature, you can check out the 5.7 Tuple notation for UrlGenerator actions pull request.
