Laravel 10.41 - Conditional Job Chains, a Number::spell() Threshold, Configurable model:prune Path, and More image

This week, the Laravel team released v10.41 with conditional job chain dispatching, a threshold parameter for Number::spell(), a customizable model path for the model:prune Artisan command, and more.

Add a until and after threshold to the Number spell helper

Caen De Silva contributed a threshold parameter to the Number helper method, which sets a limit for how high numbers are spelled out:

use Illuminate\Support\Number;
 
Number::spell(8, until: 10); // eight
Number::spell(10, until: 10); // 10
Number::spell(20, until: 10); // 20
Number::spell(11, after: 10); // eleven
Number::spell(12, after: 10); // twelve

Specify a model path with the model:prune command

@dbhynds contributed the ability to define custom paths to use with the model:prune command:

php artisan model:prune --path=$PWD//Some/Absolute/Path/Models

You can pass multiple directories to the --path option if you have models in various places—here's an example of passing multiple paths using the Artisan facade:

Artisan::call('model:prune', ['--path' => [ 'app/Models', 'app/Domains' ]]);
Artisan::call('model:prune', ['--path' => 'app']);
Artisan::call('model:prune', ['--path' => 'vendor/some-random-lib']);

Allow Job Chains to be Conditionally Dispatched

Frankie Jarrett contributed two methods to the PendingChain class, which enables conditionally dispatching a job chain using the if and unless style methods:

// Dispatch the chain unless a condition is false
Bus::chain([
new JobA(),
new JobB(),
new JobC(),
])->dispatchIf(true);
 
// Dispatch the chain unless a condition is true
Bus::chain([
new JobA(),
new JobB(),
new JobC(),
])->dispatchUnless(false);

Add a base parameter for the Stringable toInteger() method

Piotr Adamczyk contributed an optional $base argument to the Stringable toInteger() method, which allows you to specify a base value other than the underlying intval()'s default of 10:

// Before
$stringable = Str::of($hexData)->after('#')->beforeLast("\r");
$value = intval($stringable, 16);
 
// After
$value = Str::of($hexData)->after('#')->beforeLast("\r")->toInteger(16);
