Laravel 10.14 Released

Laravel 10.14 Released image

This week, the Laravel team released v10.14 with a new can validation rule, define custom Gate denial response, global HTTP client middleware, HTTP client convenience methods, and more:

The can validation rule

Steve Bauman contributed the Rule::can() validation rule, which provides a way to authorize an ability for a given form field. Here's the example given in Pull Request #47371. Given the following PostPolicy:

// Given the following policy
class PostPolicy
{
// ...
 
public function updateAuthor(User $user, Post $post)
{
return $user->isAdmin();
}
}

We can validate that the user has the ability to update the author:

use App\Models\Post;
 
class PostRequest extends FormRequest
{
public function rules()
{
return [
'author' => Rule::can('update-author', Post::class, $this->route('post')),
'title' => '...',
'body' => '...',
];
}
}

Set a custom response for denial within Gate@inspect()

Luke Kuzmish contributed the ability to set a response returned when a Gate's inspect() method fails. For example, when using in conjunction with the can() middleware:

class AppServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
{
public function boot()
{
Gate::setDenialResponse(Response::denyAsNotFound());
}
}

Global HTTP middleware

Tim MacDonald contributed the ability to define global HTTP client middleware that is applied to every request made with the HTTP client:

// In a service provider...
 
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;
 
// Global request middleware
Http::globalRequestMiddleware(
fn ($request) => $request->withHeader('User-Agent', 'Laravel Framework/1.0')
);
 
// Global response middleware
Http::globalResponseMiddleware(
fn ($response) => $response->withHeader('X-Finished-At', now()->toDateTimeString())
);
 
// Complete global middleware that wraps both request and response
Http::globalMiddleware(function ($handler) {
return function ($request, $options) use ($handler) {
$startedAt = now();
 
return $handler($request, $options)
->then(fn ($response) => $response->withHeader(
'X-Duration', $startedAt->diffInMilliseconds(now())
));
};
});

You can also define one-time middlware—check out all the details in Pull Request #47525 to see what's possible!

Add a withHeader() method to PendingRequest

Ralph J. Smit contributed a withHeader method to set a singular header when using the HTTP client:

// Using an array
Http::baseUrl(config('services.active-campaign.endpoint') . '/api/3')
->withHeaders([
'Api-Token' => config('services.active-campaign.token')
])
->acceptJson();
 
 
// Setting a single header using `withHeader()`
Http::baseUrl(config('services.active-campaign.endpoint') . '/api/3')
->withHeader('Api-Token', config('services.active-campaign.token'))
->acceptJson();

Add withQueryParameters convenience method to the HTTP client

Matthieu Napoli contributed a withQueryParameters() method as a convenience for defining query parameters that should always be defined on an HTTP request:

// Using `withOptions()`
Http::baseUrl('https://api.convertkit.com/v3/')
->withOptions([
'query' => [
'api_secret' => config('services.convertkit.api_secret'),
],
])
->acceptJson();
 
// Using the new `withQueryParameters()` method
Http::baseUrl('https://api.convertkit.com/v3/')
->withQueryParameters([
'api_secret' => config('services.convertkit.api_secret'),
])
->acceptJson();
