Laravel 7.18 Released image

The Laravel team released v7.18.0 with an HTTP client middleware method and view component attribute updates, along with the latest new features, fixes, and changes in the 7.x branch:

HTTP withMiddleware

Hannes Van De Vreken contributed a withMiddleware method to the framework’s HTTP client. It uses Guzzle’s handler stack to push a user-defined middleware to the stack:

$client = new \Illuminate\Http\Client\PendingRequest();
 
$debugBar = new \DebugBar\StandardDebugBar();
 
// Get data collector.
$timeline = $debugBar->getCollector('time');
 
// Wrap the timeline.
$profiler = new \GuzzleHttp\Profiling\Debugbar\Profiler($timeline);
 
// Add middleware to the handler stack
$client->withMiddleware(new \GuzzleHttp\Profiling\Middleware($profiler));

View Component Attribute Features

Kevin McKee contributed making the ComponentAttributeBag macroable. If you’re interested in the benefits I recommend checking out Pull Request #33354 which has the details.

Along with this PR, Taylor Otwell contributed more ComponentAttributeBag methods, including filter, whereStartsWith, and thatStartWith (an alias of whereStartsWith):

$this->assertSame('class="font-bold"', (string) $bag->whereStartsWith('class'));

Kevin also contributed a ComponentAttributeBag::first method to get the first attribute from a ComponentAttributeBag instance:

{{ $attributes->thatStartWith('wire:model')->first() }}

New Scheduler Frequencies

Sjors Ottjes contributed new scheduling methods to the scheduler (via the ManagesFrequencies trait) adds some syntactic sugar for one, two, and three minute schedules:

// Before
$schedule->job(SyncSomething::class)->cron('*/2 * * * *'); // every 2 minutes
 
// After, new methods
$schedule->job(SyncSomething::class)->everyTwoMinutes();
 
// PR also adds everyThreeMinutes and everyFourMinutes
$schedule->job(SyncSomething::class)->everyThreeMinutes();
$schedule->job(SyncSomething::class)->everyFourMinutes();
