Laravel 10.13 Released

This week, the Laravel team released v10.13 with database escaping functionality in Grammar, Sleep test hooks, response preparation events, and more:

Hash isHashed() method

Günther Debrauwer contributed an isHashed() method that wraps the native password_get_info() call, which determines if a string is already hashed:

Hash::isHashed($value); // bool

This means this method can be mocked and isn't locked in to the password_get_info() function call to determine hashing.

Escaping functionality within the Grammar

Tobias Petry previously contributed database expressions with grammar-specific formatting, and is following that up with escaping functionality within the Grammar class:

To solve the problem, I am proposing a solution to add support for database grammars to escape any value for safe embedding into SQL queries. PHP provides this natively with the PDO::quote method.

Individual connection instances (i.e., PostgresConnection) implement database-specific escaping, which means you wouldn't have to use raw driver-specific queries to escape values:

// Taken from the Postgres escaping tests
$this->app['db']->escape(hex2bin('dead00beef'), true)

Check out Pull Request #46558 for full details, implementation, and discussion around these concepts.

Provide Sleep testing hooks

Tim MacDonald contributed the ability to register a callback to execute while sleeping in a test:

// Implementation example from the PR:
$timeout = now()->addMinute();
do {
if (Work:attempt()) {
} while (now()->isAfter($timeout));
// Test code
Sleep::whenFakingSleep(fn (Interval $duration) => $this->travel(
// run test code.

Effectively we can progress the now() value to make sure our implementation is working as expected. See Pull Request #47228 for more details.

Additional status code assertions

Volodya Kurshudyan contributed a few status code assertion conveniences that are alternatives to asserting the status code directly:


These convenience methods can be controversial regarding "should this be in the framework or not?". Feel free not to use them and use $response->assertStatus(308) instead 💖

Wrap response preparation in events

Tim MacDonald contributed new response events to tap into the moment of preparing and after a response is prepared. This allows some interesting abilities, such as logging queries between the PreparingResponse and ResponsePrepared events. As illustrated below, you could throw an exception if any queries get executed during PreparingResponse or log them out in production:

$logQueries = false;
Event::listen(PreparingResponse::class, function () use (&$logQueries) {
$logQueries = true;
Event::listen(ResponsePrepared::class, function () use (&$logQueries) {
$logQueries = false;
DB::listen(function (QueryExecuted $event) use (&$logQueries) {
if ($logQueries) {
// log in production, throw locally.

See Pull Request #45603 for more details on the ideas behind these events, such as preventing queries during response preparation, view rendering, etc.
