This week, the Laravel team released v10.21 with new string helper methods, countable failed job providers, improved HTTP pool return type, and more:

Laravel Str::convertCase() Method

Raúl Mauricio Uñate Castro contributed a convertCase() string method, which is a wrapper around the mb_convert_case function. It performs case folding on a string while taking into account character encoding and multi-byte characters:

use Illuminate\Support\Str;
 
// Convert to uppercase, including special characters.
$upper = Str::convertCase("The framework that brought PHP to life!", MB_CASE_UPPER);
// 'THE FRAMEWORK THAT BROUGHT PHP TO LIFE!'
 
// Convert to lowercase, including special characters.
$lower = Str::convertCase("The framework that brought PHP to life!", MB_CASE_LOWER);
// 'the framework that brought php to life!'
 
// Convert to title case, only the first letter of each word is uppercase.
$title = Str::convertCase("The framework that brought PHP to life!", MB_CASE_TITLE);
// 'The Framework That Brought Php To Life!'

Add broadcastAs() method to Broadcast Notification Created Event

Raphael Canguçu contributed a broadcastAs() method to the BroadcastNotificationCreated event. If the notification instance on this event has a broadcastAs method it can be used to return the broadcast name:

I add this function so it will get the broadcast event name as the same way it does for other events. I needed this, because I wanted to specify the event name , and without this function, it will get only the class name.

You can learn more about this change in Pull Request #48136.

Improved the PendingRequest::pool() return type

Choraimy Kroonstuiver contributed a nice DX improvement to the pool() method on the HTTP client.

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;
use Illuminate\Http\Client\Pool;
 
$responses = Http::pool(fn (Pool $pool) => [
$pool-›get('https: //Laravel.com'),
]);
 
return $responses[0]->body();

Given the above code, you should get autocomplete for each response in the pool:

Laravel Start and end string replacement helpers

Joe Dixon contributed two string helpers to replace or prune a value at the start or end of a string. These will only be replaced if the given value exists at the start or end of the string, respectively.

Str::replaceEnd('/public', '/private', '/path/to/my/public/nested/public');
// /path/to/my/public/nested/private
 
Str::replaceStart('/public', '/private', '/public/path/to/my/public/nested/public');
// /private/path/to/my/public/nested/public

Allow failed job providers to be countable

Tim MacDonald contributed the ability to count the number of failed jobs using the failed job providers, for example, doing a count() query in the database instead of retrieving all records and running count($jobs) (not ideal).

Here's one implementation (DatabaseFailedJobProvider) from the pull request so you can get an idea of how it might work:

/**
* Count the failed jobs.
*
* @param string|null $connection
* @param string|null $queue
* @return int
*/
public function count($connection = null, $queue = null)
{
return $this->getTable()
->when($connection, fn ($builder) => $builder->whereConnection($connection))
->when($queue, fn ($builder) => $builder->whereQueue($queue))
->count();
}
