Laravel 10.42 - Global Defaults for the HTTP Client, a Max Validation Rule for Passwords, and more image

This week, the Laravel team released v10.42 with global default options for the HTTP client, a max validation rule for the password rule object, a string unwrap helper, and more.

Global Default Options for the HTTP Client

Tim MacDonald contributed the ability to configure global default options for the HTTP client via a service provider:

Http::globalOptions([
'timeout' => 5,
'connect_timeout' => 2,
]);

If you call the globalOptions method more than once, it will override the original global configuration on subsequent calls.

String Unwrap Helper

Steve Bauman contributed a Str::unwrap() method which you can use to unwrap strings:

// Unquote
Str::unwrap('"Unquote"', '"');
// `Unquote`
 
// some: "json"
Str::unwrap('{ some: "json" }', '{', '}');
// ` some: "json" `

Add Multiple Channels/Routes to at Once

D. Nagy Gergő contributed the ability to configure multiple routes at once for on-demand notifications:

NotificationFacade::routes([
'mail' => ['example@test.local' => 'Test Customer'],
'vonage' => '+3620123456',
])->notify(new OrderStatusChanged($order));

New JobQueueing Event

Daniel Mason contributed a JobQueueing event to the framework that is fired before a job is sent to the queue provider. Here’s a rough example of where this event is instantiated, which includes the $connectionName, $job, and $payload:

use Illuminate\Queue\Events\JobQueueing;
 
new JobQueueing($this->connectionName, $job, $payload));

Max Validation Rule for Passwords

Jeremy Angele contributed a max length validation rule to the Password rule object. This is useful when defining a default password rule:

// Before
Password::min(8)->rules('max:32');
 
// New max() method
Password::min(8)->max(32);
