Laravel 8.7 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.7 this week with new rate-limiting constructors and an onError() HTTP client method, along with the latest new features, fixes, and changes in the 8.x branch.

Add Per Hour and Per Day Constructors

User @ali-alharthi contributed perHour and perDay rate limiting for Laravel 8’s new RateLimiter functionality:

use Illuminate\Cache\RateLimiting\Limit;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\RateLimiter;
 
RateLimiter::for('global', function (Request $request) {
return Limit::perHour(1000);
});

Laravel 8 introduces some nice rate limiting improvements you should check out if you haven’t had a chance yet.

HTTP Client onError

Tim MacDonald contributed an onError() method to the HTTP client that accepts a callback:

return $client->withHeaders($headers)
->post($url, $payload)
->onError(fn ($response) =>
Log::error('Twitter API failed posting Tweet', [
'url' => $url,
'payload' => $payload,
'headers' => $headers,
'response' => $response->body(),
])
)->json();

As suggested in the pull request, you can now pass a closure to the throw() method which will call the closure before throwing an exception:

return $client->withHeaders($headers)
->post($url, $payload)
->throw(fn($response) => Log::error('Twitter API failed posting Tweet', [
'url' => $url,
'payload' => $payload,
'headers' => $headers,
'response' => $response->body(),
]))->json();

Artisan Serve “no-reload” Option

Taylor Otwell contributed a --no-reload flag to the Artisan serve command, which does not reload the development server on .env file changes:

php artisan serve --no-reload
