v5.8.10 is Now Released Featuring a New Replicating Model Event
Published on by Eric L. Barnes
The Laravel team just released v5.8.10, and this release includes two new features. A
replicating model event and
NotificationFake is now macroable.
If you are not familiar with Model Events, read our tutorial on getting started with Laravel Model Events and see how these can be beneficial in your codebase.
replicating event is added for when you want to make a copy of a model. For example:
$post = Post::find(1);$newPost = $post->replicate();$newPost->save();
This grabs the first post, calls replicate and assigns it to a
$newPost variable, then finally saves it as a new record in the database. The replicating event will fire as part of this flow. Check out the pull request for more details and to see how this was implemented.
