Laravel 8.71 Released image

The Laravel team released 8.71 with a @js blade directive, declined validation rules, the ability to flush macros, and the latest changes in the v8.x branch:

Declined Validation Rules

Nicklas Kevin Frank contributed declined and declined_if validation rules. These rules are the opposite of accepted and accepted_if, which means that the field under validation must equal no, off, 0, or false. The declined_if is the same but only when another field is equal to a specified value.

@js Blade Directive

Chris Morrell contributed a @js blade directive, building on the Js class introduced in Laravel 8.70. This directive is useful to properly escape JSON within HTML quotes, resulting in a JS object using JSON.parse():

<div x-data="@js($data)"></div>

The above will result in:

<div x-data="<?php echo \Illuminate\Support\Js::from($data)->toHtml() ?>"></div>

Flush Macros

Brad Miller contributed a flushMacros method to the Macroable trait used throughout various classes in the Laravel framework. This method could be helpful in a unit test environment where side effects exist and parallel testing could cause intermittent failures. Calling the flushMacros() method removes all macros defined on class:

Example::flushMacros()
