Laravel 9.42 comes with new singleton route resources, conditional report helpers, and more image

The Laravel team released 9.42 this week with singleton route resources, conditional report helpers, and more:

Define routes for singleton resources

Jess Archer contributed a Route::singleton() method to register routes for singleton resources. These are resources that are either "one of one" or "zero or one" resources. For example, a profile endpoint:

Route::singleton('profile', ProfileController::class);
/*
Defines:
GET /profile
GET /profile/edit
PUT/PATCH /profile
DELETE /profile
*/
 
// Nested resource
Route::singleton('videos.thumbnail', VideoThumbnailController::class);
 
/*
Defines:
GET /videos/{video}/thumbnail
GET /videos/{video}/thumbnail/edit
PUT/PATCH /videos/{video}/thumbnail
DELETE /videos/{video}/thumbnail
*/
 
// Only and except
Route::singleton('profile', ProfileController::class)
->except('destroy');
 
Route::singleton('profile', ProfileController::class)
->only(['show', 'update']);

The make:controller command was also updated to include --singleton and --creatable flags to generate singleton controllers.

Check out the Singleton Resource Controllers docs for more examples and details. Excellent work, Jess!

Added a rest option for queue:listen

@PHPGuus contributed a --rest= option to the queue:listen command that will sleep for the number of seconds passed to rest:

php artisan queue:listen --rest=5

Determine if a string is a ULID

Michael Nabil contributed an isUlid() method to the Stringable class to check if a string is a valid Universally Unique Lexicographically Sortable Identifier (ULID) string. You can use it as follows:

use Illuminate\Support\Str;
 
Str::isUlid('01GJSNW9MAF792C0XYY8RX6QFT'); // true
Str::of('01GJSNW9MAF792C0XYY8RX6QFT')->isUlid(); // true

Conditional report helpers

Michael Nabil contributed two new conditional report() helpers. These might be useful to shorten checks where you might report when a condition is true or false:

// Normal report usage
if(! Auth::user()->isAdmin()){
report('Is route need permission user');
}
 
// Shorten/avoid `if` with:
report_if(
Auth::user()->isAdmin(),
'Is route need permission admin'
);
 
report_unless(
Auth::user()->isAdmin(),
'Is route need permission user'
);

These helpers are optional—you are free to use them or not :)

Custom mutex name of scheduled events

Andrej Mihaliak contributed a callback to resolve a custom mutex name of scheduled events:

$schedule->command('do-something', ['--uuid' => 'b4d5f926-e1b5-4285-b068-cf1d623a0635'])
->description('Do something important.')
->everyFiveMinutes()
->onOneServer()
->withoutOverlapping()
->createMutexNameUsing(fn (Event $event) => 'schedule-task-'.sha1($event->description));

Check out Pull Request #45126 for complete details.
