Append Artisan Tables with Laravel 6.15.0

Append Artisan Tables with Laravel 6.15.0

The Laravel team released v6.15.0 this week with support for appending tables in artisan commands, a validated authorization event, and a handler method you can override to customize HTTP exception views:

Validated Auth Event

A new validated auth even fires after the user is retrieved from the user provider and validated but before the Login event. Here’s the test verifying that Validated event was dispatched during an auth attempt:

use Illuminate\Auth\Events\Validated;

Event::assertDispatched(Validated::class, function ($event) {
    $this->assertSame('web', $event->guard);
    $this->assertEquals(1, $event->user->id);

    return true;

Blueprint Supports Grammar Macros

Hafez Divandari contributed the ability for Blueprint to support Grammar macros when building raw SQL statements in the toSql() method. Grammar macros enable you to customize existing grammars.

I don’t have a good example, but here’s the updated condition in Blueprint::toSql() that will consider macros from grammar:

if (method_exists($grammar, $method) || $grammar::hasMacro($method)) {
    if (!is_null($sql = $grammar->$method($this, $command, $connection))) {
        $statements = array_merge($statements, (array) $sql);

Custom Exception Views

Maarten Buis contributed a “getHttpExceptionView()” method to the base exceptions Handler class. If you need some custom logic around getting the view used to render exceptions, you can override this method in the application Handler child class.

Here’s the framework’s handler implementation:

 * Get the view used to render HTTP exceptions.
 * @param \Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Exception\HttpExceptionInterface $e
 * @return string
protected function getHttpExceptionView(HttpExceptionInterface $e)
    return "errors::{$e->getStatusCode()}";

Append Rows to an Artisan Table

You can append rows to tables in artisan commands using the appendRow method:

public function handle()
    $table = $this->table(
        ['Column', 'Another column'],

    $table->appendRow(['Value', 'Another Value']);
    $table->appendRow(['Value', 'Another Value']);
