3 Quick Tips about Laravel Blade.

Hello, today i have three random quick tips about blade maybe some of you will know them, maybe some of you will learn one or two new things, and let's begin...

1 - forelse loop

What do you do when you need to show a loop in Blade with foreach, but the list might be empty? You probably write if-else statement around it, right?

Using foreach

@if ($users->count())
  @foreach ($users as $user)
    <li>{{ $user->name }}</li>
  @endforeach
@else
   <p>No users.</p>
@endif
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

You can use this

@forelse ($users as $user)
    <li>{{ $user->name }}</li>
@empty
    <p>No users</p>
@endforelse
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2 - auth and guest

The auth and guest directives may be used to quickly determine if the current user is authenticated or is a guest.

@auth
    // The user is authenticated...
@endauth

@guest
    // The user is not authenticated...
@endguest
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

3 - auth()->user() Object

auth user object is accessible throughout all blade files without really passing them, so logged user can be accessed by our auth user.

User-name: {{ auth()->user()->name }}
User-email: {{ auth()->user()->email }}
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

So, you don't need to pass anything from the controller to view the information or check the information of logged user.

Thanks for reading.
