Laravel v5.4.29 is Released with Two New Blade Directives on 19th July

Laravel V5.4.29 is now released and available. This is a maintenance release but it includes two new Blade Directives, a --force option on some of the “make” commands, and more.

New @auth and @guest Directives

The @auth directive allows you to simplify the check to see if a user is logged in. For example, in the past you might use:
@if(Auth::check())
   You are logged in.
@endif
Now with the @auth directive, this can be simplified to:
@auth
   You are logged in.
@endauth
It also supports the Guard to use as the first parameter:
@auth('admin')
    You are logged in through admin guard
@endauth
The other new directive is @guest which is the inverse:
@guest
   Welcome Guest
@endauth

Woot, 2.4.0 is out! : vue.js

FeaturesFull SSR + async component support in core: SSR now supports rendering async components used anywhere and the client also supports async components during the hydration phase. This means async components / code-splitting now just works during SSR and is no longer limited at the route level. (9cf6646 & 7404091) Easier creation of wrapper components: (6118759) New component option: inheritAttrs. Turns off the default behavior where
parent scope non-prop bindings are automatically inherited on component root
as attributes. New instance properties: $attrs & $listeners. $attrs contains the parent-scope attribute bindings that were not recognized as props, and $listeners contains the v-on listeners registered in the parent scope (without the .native modifier). These are essentially aliases of $vnode.data.attrs and $vnode.data.on, but are reactive. Combining these allows us to simplify a component like this down into this: <div> <inputv-bind="$attrs"v-on=&qu…

PHP 7.2: Add Extension By Name

There is a good list of things that are being deprecated, and a change to allow for type widening, but compared to PHP 7.0 and PHP 7.2, PHP 7.2 is positively a yawner. This makes writing articles about the new hotness coming down the pipe a bit difficult. Even so, there are a couple of things that are worth noting in PHP 7.2 One of them is “PHP RFC: Allow loading extensions by name”.

The way PHP handles loading extensions is absolutely fine, if you are a Linux system admin. Honestly, there was a time when most of us who managed PHP on a server where. The extension= lines in a php.ini require that you know the exact name of the extension. That name is different on Windows severs than on Linux servers. Even though the majority of PHP deployments are still on some variant of Unix, not all are.

So, to resolve this issue for the sake of the sanity of DevOps teams everywhere, PHP 7.2 will allow extensions to be loaded by name in addition to file name. So now, all of these will be acceptable: …

Get start with Vue.js

Getting Started The official guide assumes intermediate level knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. If you are totally new to frontend development, it might not be the best idea to jump right into a framework as your first step - grasp the basics then come back! Prior experience with other frameworks helps, but is not required. The easiest way to try out Vue.js is using theJSFiddle Hello World example. Feel free to open it in another tab and follow along as we go through some basic examples. Or, you can simplycreate anindex.htmlfileand include Vue with: <scriptsrc="https://unpkg.com/vue"></script> TheInstallationpage provides more options of installing Vue. Note that wedo notrecommend beginners to start withvue-cli, especially if you are not yet familiar with Node.js-based build tools. Declarative Rendering At the core of Vue.js is a system that enables us to declaratively render data to the DOM using straightforward template syntax: <divid="app"> …
