Laravel 8.64 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.64 with an @aware blade directive to access parent component data and the latest changes in the v8.x branch.

The @aware Blade Directive

The new @aware directive allows child components to easily access parent component data when needed:

<!-- Example usage -->
<x-menu color="purple">
<x-menu.item>...</x-menu.item>
<x-menu.item>...</x-menu.item>
</x-menu>
 
<!--
Implementation
/resources/views/components/menu/index.blade.php
-->
 
@aware(['color' => 'gray'])
 
<li {{ $attributes->merge(['class' => 'text-'.$color.'-800']) }}>
{{ $slot }}
</li>

You can learn more about accessing parent data in the Laravel Blade documentation.

Strip Tags Stringable Method

Craig Anderson contributed a stripTags() Stringable method to use PHP's strip_tags() as part of a fluent string chain:

Str::of('<strong>before<strong><br />after')->stripTags();

Language Path Helper Function

Rodolfo Ruiz contributed a lang_path() helper that will look for the lang directory in both the resources path and a top-level lang folder in the root of a Laravel project:

// PROJECT_DIR/resources/lang or PROJECT_DIR/lang
$langPath = lang_path();
 
// PROJECT_DIR/resources/lang/es or PROJECT_DIR/lang/es
$langPath = lang_path('es');
 
// PROJECT_DIR/resources/lang/en or PROJECT_DIR/lang/en
$langPath = lang_path('en');

A "throw if" HTTP Client Method

Ahmad Mayahi contributed a throwIf() method that accepts a boolean to only throw an exception if the value passed is true:

$response
->json()
->throwIf(App::isProduction);

Collections "has any" Method

Craig Anderson contributed a hasAny() method to collections, which will return a boolean if the collection contains any of the passed values:

// returns `true`
collect(['first' => 'Hello', 'second' => 'World'])
->hasAny(['first', 'fourth']);
 
// returns `false`
collect(['first' => 'Hello', 'second' => 'World'])
->hasAny(['third', 'fourth']);
