Laravel 5.8.17 Released With a “Tappable” Trait image

The Laravel team released Laravel 5.8.17 yesterday with a new Tappable trait, a dumpHeaders test method, and quite a few other new features.

First, a new dumpHeaders() method was added to the TestResponse class which helps you debug headers. Here’s the improvement over doing this manually:

$response = $this->get('/example');
 
// Previously
dd($response->headers->all());
 
// Ah, that's better
$response->dumpHeaders();

The new dumpHeaders method PR mentioned the dump() method, which you might not be familiar with but is also convenient:

// dd() the response content...
$response->dump();

Next, an ends_with validation rule was added, which looks like this:

$rules = [
'email' => 'required|ends_with:laravel.com,jasonmccreary.me',
];

Next, support for multiple columns arguments got added to the route:list command:

# Previously
php artisan route:list --columns=method --columns=uri --columns=name
 
# Now
php artisan route:list --columns=method,uri,name
php artisan route:list --columns=method --columns=uri,name

A new Tappable trait was added to Illuminate\Support which you can define on a class like so:

use Illuminate\Support\Traits\Tappable;
 
class TappableClass {
use Tappable;
// ...
}

Here’s a before and after example:

// with tap method
$result = tap(TappableClass::make(), function ($tappable) {
$tappable->doSomething();
$tappable->doSomethingElse();
})->getResult();
 
// with Tappable trait
$result = TappableClass::make()->tap(function ($tappable) {
$tappable->doSomething();
$tappable->doSomethingElse();
})->getResult();

You can see the full list of fixes below, and the whole diff between 5.8.16 and 5.8.17 on GitHub. The full release notes for Laravel 5.8 are available in the GitHub 5.8 changelog:
