New artisan docs command in Laravel 9.23

Admin   Laravel   209  2022-08-05 22:30:02

The Laravel team released 9.23 with an artisan docs command, Vite support for CSP/SRI, a new fluent JSON assertion method and more. Let's take a look at the latest Laravel 9 release:

Artisan docs command

Tim MacDonald contributed a new amazing artisan docs command, giving developers quick access to website documentation from the command line:

1# Opens a choice dialog you can use to type what you want
2php artisan docs
4# Opens the validation docs
5php artisan docs validation

Things get really crazy, when, let's say you want to go to the unique validation rule on the validation docs page:

1php artisan docs validation unique
3# partial searches, will open the unique validation rule
4php artisan docs va un

Here's an example of the default behavior when you don't pass a page to the command:

artisan docs choice prompt

Fluent JSON whereNot assertion

Mateus Guimarães contributed a whereNot() JSON testing assertion:

2 ->assertJson(fn (AssertableJson $json) =>
3 $json->where('id', 1)
4 ->where('name', 'Victoria Faith')
5 ->whereNot('status', 'pending')
6 ->missing('password')
7 ->etc()
8 );

Delete a model quietly

Anjorin Damilare contributed a deleteQuietly() model method to delete a model from the database without raising any events:

1use App\Models\Flight;
3$flight = Flight::find(1);

Conditionable trait added to Filesystem adapters

Ralph J. Smit contributed adding the Conditionable trait to Filesystem to allow you to use when() and unless() methods:

2 ->when(true)
3 ->delete('StardewTaylor.png');

Vite support for CSP, SRI, and arbitrary values

Tim MacDonald contributed first-party support for the Vite implementation to create a nonce that will be used on all generated script and style tags:

1use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Vite;
3class ContentSecurityPolicy
5 public function handle($request, $next)
6 {
7 // You need to call this function **before** resolving the response
8 // so that 3rd parties can use the same nonce throughout the request
9 // lifecycle e.g. Ziggy
11 Vite::useCspNonce();
13 return $next($response)->withHeaders([
14 'Content-Security-Policy' => "script-src 'nonce-".Vite::cspNonce()."'",
15 ]);
16 }

This subject is pretty heavy, so I recommend reading through the description on Pull Request #43442 to get the full details. Also, the Laravel Vite documentation has been updated with Script & Style Tag Attributes section to help you get started.
