Laravel 9.26 Released

The Laravel team released 9.26 with a Vite asset helper, Closure support to dispatch conditionals, min and max digit validation rules, and more:

Vite asset URL helper

Tim MacDonald contributed a Vite asset URL helper to generate a URL in Blade. Given the following code in your app's JS entrypoint, Vite will process all images and fonts in these paths:


Now, using the Vite asset helper method, it will point to your project's build assets within a blade template:

<img src="{{ Vite::asset('resources/images/logo.jpeg') }}">
{{-- <img src=""> --}}

See Processing Static Assets With Vite in the Vite documentation for further details.

Add Closure support to dispatch conditionals

@Italo contributed the usage of a Closure to dispatch jobs conditionally. The entire job instance is passed to the closure:

// Dispatches job
fn ($job) => true,
// Will not dispatch
fn ($job) => false,

Min and max digits validation

Dan Harrin contributed min_digits and max_digits built-in validation rules. These rules require the integer under validation must have a minimum or maximum length of value:

'number' => 1000,
], [
'number' => [
// Passes as `1000` has 4 digits
'min_digits:3', 'max_digits:5',
// Fails as `1000` is greater than 5
'min:3', 'max:5',

Added support for additional "where" methods in route groups

Ollie Read contributed support for all remaining where* methods available on routes to route groups:

Route::whereIn(['foo', 'bar'], ['one', 'two'])
->group(function () {
// ...
