Callable Container Objects Added to Laravel 6.2 image

The Laravel team released v6.2.0 last week with a New Password Confirmation Flow for Logged In Users, and callable container objects. Let’s go over some of the other new features we haven’t covered yet, now that the release notes are available:

First, Container::call now supports callable objects. Here’s the test from the pull request, which demonstrates how it works:

class ContainerCallCallableStub
{
public function __invoke(ContainerCallConcreteStub $stub, $default = 'jeffrey')
{
return func_get_args();
}
}
 
$container = new Container;
$callable = new ContainerCallCallableStub;
$result = $container->call($callable);
$this->assertInstanceOf(ContainerCallConcreteStub::class, $result[0]);
$this->assertSame('jeffrey', $result[1]);

Next, the framework Authenticate middleware adds an unauthenticated method. Each Laravel project has an Authenticate middleware class that extends the framework middleware, enabling you to override the unauthenticated behavior:

class Authenticate extends Middleware
{
/**
* Get the path the user should be redirected to when they are not authenticated.
*
* @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
* @return string
*/
protected function redirectTo($request)
{
if (! $request->expectsJson()) {
return route('login');
}
}
 
protected function unauthenticated($request, array $guards)
{
// Custom unauthenticated logic
}
}

Next, a new partialMock() convenience method was added to test suite:

// Before
$this->instance(Abstract::class, Mockery::mock(Abstract::class, function ($mock) {
$mock->shouldReceive('call')->once();
})->makePartial());
 
// After
$this->partialMock(Abstract::class, function ($mock) {
$mock->shouldReceive('call')->once();
});
