Laravel 9.15 Released

Published on by

Laravel 9.15 Released image

The Laravel team released 9.15 with the ability to list only vendor routes, check if a filesystem folder is empty/not empty, an isJson() string helper, and more:

Only vendors listed in route:list command

Ash Allen contributed a --only-vendor flag to the route:list command. Only vendor routes will appear in the terminal, and the command will ignore your application routes.

This flag is helpful to audit routes that packages may have installed that you're not aware of otherwise or if you are curious about what routes packages register.

HTTP client "throw unless" method

Mahmoud Mohamed Ramadan contributed a throwUnless() function to the Laravel HTTP client. This method will throw an exception if a server or client error occurred and the given condition is false:

$response = Http::post(/* ... */);
$response->throwUnless($condition);

String isJson() method

Daniel Eckermann contributed an isJson() method to the Str and Stringable classes to determine if a string is valid json:

Str::isJson($data);
//=> boolean
 
Str::of($data)->isJson()
//=> boolean
 
str($data)->isJson();
//=> boolean

Check if a filesystem directory is empty

@DarkGhostHunter contributed two methods to determine if a filesystem directory is empty or not:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\File;
 
if (File::isDirectoryEmpty('john/photos')) {
return 'You do not have any photos';
}
 
if (File::isDirectoryNotEmpty('john/videos', true)) {
return 'You may have one or more videos, even hidden ones.';
}

Show route list counts

Ash Allen contributed a visual route count to the beginning and end of the route:list CLI output:

Support kebab case for slot name shortcut

Waghabond contributed kebab-case for slot names:

<!-- /resources/views/components/my-layout.blade.php -->
<html lang="en">
<body>
{{ $mySlot }}
</body>
</html>
 
<!-- /resources/views/components/child.blade.php -->
<x-my-layout>
{{-- kebab-case slot name --}}
<x-slot:my-slot>
<div>My super cool content</div>
</x-slot:my-slot>
</x-my-layout>
