Laravel 9.30 Released image

The Laravel team released 9.29 and 9.30 with a read-only filesystem option, a scoped filesystem driver, the ability to discard model changes, and more.

Note: we last covered Laravel 9.28.0, so this release post covers both 9.29 and 9.30.

Read-only filesystem config option

Frank de Jonge contributed to configuring a filesystem disk to operate in read-only mode. This ensures no write operations are possible on the disk, which is useful when accessing storage you want to ensure doesn't manipulate any files.

Here's a config example from the pull request for this feature:

$disk = $filesystem->build([
'driver' => 'local',
'read-only' => true,
'root' => 'my-custom-path',
'url' => 'my-custom-url',
'visibility' => 'public',
]);

Scoped filesystem driver

Frank de Jonge contributed scoped filesystem drivers, which enables a way to reuse disk configurations. Here's an example from the pull request description:

[
's3' => [
'driver' => 's3',
'key' => env('AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID'),
'secret' => env('AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY'),
'region' => env('AWS_DEFAULT_REGION'),
'bucket' => env('AWS_BUCKET'),
'url' => env('AWS_URL'),
'endpoint' => env('AWS_ENDPOINT'),
'use_path_style_endpoint' => env('AWS_USE_PATH_STYLE_ENDPOINT', false),
'throw' => false,
],
's3_videos' => [
'driver' => 'scoped',
'prefix' => 'path/for/videos',
'disk' => 's3',
],
]

Add force option to all "make" commands

James Brooks contributed a --force flag to all make:* commands, which is helpful when you need to recreate a file.

"Required if accepted" validation rule

Pascal Baljet contributed a required_if_accepted validation rule which ensures the field under validation is required if another field is accepted (a value of yes, on, 1, or true):

Validator::make([
'is_company' => 'on',
'company_name' => 'Apple',
], [
'is_company' => 'required|boolean',
'company_name' => 'required_if_accepted:is_company',
]);

Ability to discard Eloquent model changes

Mior Muhammad Zaki contributed a discardChanges() method to discard attribute changes and reset attributes to their original state:

$user = new EloquentModelStub([
'name' => 'Taylor Otwell',
]);
 
$user->getOriginal('name'); // null
 
$user->getAttribute('name'); // Taylor Otwell
$user->discardChanges();
$user->getAttribute('name'); // null

Determine if attachments exist

Andrew Minion contributed to determining if the given attachments are included in a mailable. Three methods were added that can help assert attachments in tests:

$mailable = new InvoicePaid($user);
 
// Test normal attachment.
$this->assertTrue(
$mailable->hasAttachment('Receipt.pdf')
);
 
// Test attachment from storage disk.
$this->assertTrue(
$mailable->hasAttachmentFromStorageDisk('s3', 'invoices', $user->latest_invoice->name)
);
 
// Test raw attachment.
$this->assertTrue(
$mailable->hasAttachedData('12345', 'confirmation.txt')
);
