Laravel 7.14 Released

Laravel 7.14 Released

The Laravel team released v7.14.0 with making component attributes available during render and guessing a file extension based on mime-type, along with the latest features, fixes, and changes in the 7.x branch.

View Attributes Available Within Render Method

Taylor Otwell contributed the ability for view component to return a Closure that takes data attributes as an argument:

Currently $this->attributes is null within a component’s render method. This solves that by allowing components to return a Closure from rendering to defer the template building… which allows you to do some pretty funky stuff.

public function render()
    return function ($data) {
        // $data['attributes'];
        // $this->attributes;

Guessing a File Extension

Illia Sakovich contributed a File::guessExtension() method “which could be useful in case we want to know the extension of the file which doesn’t have one.”

It guesses the file extension by the mime type:

>>> File::name(public_path('image.png'))
=> "image"
>>> File::extension(public_path('image.png'))
=> "png"
>>> File::guessedExtension(public_path('image.png'))
=> "png"
>>> File::copy(public_path('image.png'), public_path('image'))
=> true
>>> File::name(public_path('image'))
=> "image"
>>> File::extension(public_path('image'))
=> ""
>>> File::guessedExtension(public_path('image'))
=> "png"

Http Client toPsrRequest()

@thomasdominic contributed the toPsrRequest() method which “Allows re-build TransferStats attribute when we use http fake”:

    '' => function (Request $request) {
        $http_response = Http::response("", 403);
        $http_response->TransferStats = new TransferStats($request->toPsrRequest());
        return $http_response;

MessageBag addIf() Method

Taylor Otwell contributed the addIff() method which conditionally adds a message to a message bag:

    'Example message.'
