The Laravel team released 8.30 with the ability to stop a validator on the first failure, a new collection method, a new rate-limiting convenience method for minutes, and the latest changes in the 8.x branch:

Stop on First Failure in Validators

Taylor Otwell contributed the ability to stop on the first validator failure instead of continuing to validate all fields:

$data = ['foo' => 'bar', 'age' => 30];
$validator = Validator::make($data, [
'foo' => 'required',
'age' => 'required|min:31',
'fizz' => 'required',
$validator->passes(); // false
// returns ['age' => 'The age must be at least 31'].

New Contains One Item Collection Method

Joseph Silber contributed a new collection method for asserting if the collection contains one item. It's syntactic sugar for checking if the collection has one item:

// Manually checking the count
$collection->count() === 1;
collect(['apple'])->containsOneItem(); // true
collect([])->containsOneItem(); // false
collect(['apple', 'orange'])->containsOneItem(); // false

Rate Limiting Per Minutes Helper

Craig Anderson contributed a new perMinutes() function to rate limiting. Rate limiting already contains a perMinute() method, but the new plural version is a convenience method to define to give more granular control:

use Illuminate\Cache\RateLimiting\Limit;
$decayMinutes = 5;
$maxAttempts = 100;
Limit::perMinutes($decayMinutes, $maxAttempts);
