Laravel 9.32 Released

Laravel 9.32 Released image

The Laravel team released 9.32 with dd() file and line output, encrypting and decrypting .env files, a short syntax for blade component attributes, and more:

Add source file to dd output

Nuno Maduro improved dd() and dump() output, adding the source file and line:

This update is beneficial if you have a rogue dd() call within the vendor/ folder or somewhere in code that isn't version controlled. This is a huge quality-of-life improvement for all the dd()'ers out there!

Encrypt and Decrypt .env

Joe Dixon contributed two artisan commands to encrypt and decrypt .env files. According to the the PR description, these commands are inspired by Rails which has similar functionality (since 5.1):

Inspiration for this was taken from Rails, who have had similar functionality since Rails 5.1 released in 2017.

The biggest benefit of this is that the encrypted environment files can be committed to version control which opens up a number of possibilities.

One benefit is that you can commit encrypted files to version control, thus versioning your development setup, staging, etc.:

# Looks for .env and creates .env.encrypted
php artisan env:encrypt
 
# Use a supported cipher
php artisan env:encrypt --cipher=aes-256-cbc
 
# Looks for .env.production and creates .env.production.encrypted
php artisan env:encrypt --env=production

To decrypt an encrypted file, you can use the following artisan command:

# Decrypts .env.encrypted to create a .env file
php artisan env:decrypt --key=h9kAPUmxdZ8ZbwT3
 
# Specify options
php artisan env:decrypt \
--key=h9kAPUmxdZ8ZbwT3 \
--env=production \
--filename=.env"

Share WithoutOverlapping key across jobs

Tim MacDonald contributed updates to WithoutOverlapping that apply overlapping logic across jobs instead of only supporting instances of the same class. See Pull Request #44227 for further details.

Short attribute syntax for Blade components

Pascal Baljet contributed the ability to use a shorter syntax for passing attributes to Blade components:

<!-- current syntax -->
<x-profile :user-id="$userId"></x-profile>
 
<!-- short syntax -->
<x-profile :$userId></x-profile>

Get request data as integer and float

Jason McCreary added support for conveniently casting request data to float and integer types:

// Before
intval($request->input('some_int_value'));
floatval($request->input('some_float_value'));
 
// After
$request->integer('some_int_value');
$request->float('some_float_value');

Cast stringables

Jason McCreary contributed methods to "conveniently cast stringables to common data types similar to those found in Laravel's HTTP Request":

// Before
intval(str('shift-worker-01')->afterLast('-')->toString());
floatval(str('Result: 1.23')->after(':')->trim()->toString());
str('YeS')->lower()->toString() === 'yes';
Carbon::parse(str('DOB: 12-31-2001')->after(':')->trim()->toString());
 
 
// After
str('shift-worker-01')->afterLast('-')->toInteger();
str('Result: 1.23')->after(':')->trim()->toFloat();
str('YeS')->lower()->toBoolean();
str('DOB: 12-31-2001')->after(':')->trim()->toDate();

Allow enum route bindings to have defaults

Florian Stascheck contributed the ability to provide defaults for enum route bindings when defining a route:

Route::get('/categories-default/{category?}', function (CategoryBackedEnum $category = CategoryBackedEnum::Fruits) {
return $category->value;
})->middleware('web');

See Pull Request #44255 for further details on how this works.
