Laravel 5.8.24 Released image

The Laravel team released v5.8.24 yesterday with new TestResponse features and other miscellaneous quality of life improvements.

First the assertSessionHas method has the capability of asserting a session contains a piece of data using a closure. While sessions are generally only contain simple values, here’s a use-case example from the pull request:

// Before
$response->assertSessionHas('authenticatable');
$this->assertTrue($user->is(session('authenticatable')));
 
// After
$response->assertSessionHas('authenticatable', function ($authenticatable) use ($user) {
return $user->is($authenticatable);
});

Next, a new assertUnauthorized method was added to the TestResponse class as a convenience to assert a 401 status code:

$response->assertUnauthorized();

Next, the server port can be defined via the SERVER_PORT environment variable for the Artisan serve command:

# Before 5.8.24
php artisan serve --port=9005
 
# Via env or in the .env file
export SERVER_PORT="9005"
php artisan serve

Next, an optional $when parameter was added to the retry() helper which allows a callback to dictate retries. I think the unit tests in the commit help illustrate the usage:

$attempts = retry(2, function ($attempts) {
if ($attempts > 1) {
return $attempts;
}
throw new RuntimeException;
}, 100, function ($ex) {
return true;
});
 
// Make sure we made two attempts
$this->assertEquals(2, $attempts);
 
// Make sure we waited 100ms for the first attempt
$this->assertTrue(microtime(true) - $startTime >= 0.1);

Last, a nice quality of life improvement when using the artisan console with the —env flag. Previously, the env flag is only parsed correctly with an equals sign (—env=dev) but now a space will work too:

php artisan --env dev the:command
