The Laravel team released 8.82 with factory matrix sequences, a transliterate string helper, a new validation rule, and more:

Cross Join Sequences in Factories

@thomasowow contributed a new method and class that helps join multiple factory sequences.

Here's the newly merged approach for joining multiple sequences:

User::factory(4)
->state(
new MatrixSequence(
[['first_name' => 'Thomas'], ['first_name' => 'Agent']],
[['last_name' => 'Anderson'], ['last_name' => 'Smith']],
),
)
->create();
 
/* Results in:
[
['first_name' => 'Thomas', 'last_name' => 'Anderson'],
['first_name' => 'Thomas', 'last_name' => 'Smith'],
['first_name' => 'Agent', 'last_name' => 'Anderson'],
['first_name' => 'Agent', 'last_name' => 'Smith'],
]
*/

Previously, you'd call sequence multiple times:

User::factory(4)
->sequence([
['first_name' => 'Thomas'],
['first_name' => 'Thomas'],
['first_name' => 'Agent'],
['first_name' => 'Agent']
])
->sequence([
['last_name' => 'Anderson'],
['last_name' => 'Smith'],
['last_name' => 'Anderson'],
['last_name' => 'Smith'],
]);

Check out Pull Request #40542 for more examples and implementation details. You can learn more about sequences in the Database Testing documentation.

Transliterate String Helper

Liam Hackett contributed a Str::transliterate() method which transliterates a string to its closes ASCII representation:

$value = 'ⓐⓑⓒⓓⓔⓕⓖⓗⓘⓙⓚⓛⓜⓝⓞⓟⓠⓡⓢⓣⓤⓥⓦⓧⓨⓩ';
$this->assertSame(
'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz',
Str::transliterate($value)
);

If you're interested in what prompted this addition, read the discussion on Pull Request #40681.

Required Array Keys Validation Rule

Andrew Arscott contributed a required_array_keys validation rule which allows you to define keys that are required in an array input:

$data = [
'baz' => [
'foo' => 'bar',
'fee' => 'faa',
'laa' => 'lee',
],
];
 
$rules = [
'baz' => [
'array',
'required_array_keys:foo,fee',
],
];
 
$validator = new Validator($trans, $data, $rules, [], []);
$validator->passes(); // true

Here's a failed validation attempt:

 
$data = [
'baz' => [
'foo' => 'bar',
'fee' => 'faa',
'laa' => 'lee',
],
];
 
$rules = [
'baz' => [
'array',
'required_array_keys:foo,fee,boo,bar',
],
];
 
$validator = new Validator($trans, $data, $rules, [], []);
 
$validator->passes(); // false
 
// 'The baz field must contain entries for foo, fee, boo, bar'
$validator->messages()->first('baz');
