Laravel 5.7.15 is available with a new validation rule and Eloquent relationship getters — first, the
starts_with validation rule which allows you to check that an input starts with a string.
$request->validate(['greeting' => 'starts_with:hello',]);
You can also pass multiple strings, in which the rule will pass if at least one matches the input:
$request->validate(['greeting' => 'starts_with:hello,hola',]);
date_equals validation rule is now translatable, and you should update your
resources/lang/en/validation.php file with the following:
'date_equals' => 'The :attribute must be a date equal to :date.',
You can see the pull request to laravel/laravel for the new translation key.
New relationship getters are available in this release including:
