🧐 The @laravelphp docs are a fantastic resource to read over from time to time, given how often new features are added to the framework. ❓Did you know you can add a public shouldQueue method on your job to determine if the job actually *needs* to be queued? https://t.co/9E1uIrmugK

🔥 If you're allowing a ?perPage= query param to be specified for your pagination results, LIMIT it! Particularly if you have a huge number of potential records. You can do this easily with the native min() PHP function. https://t.co/aNW7K09Zdt

🔥 Sometimes, when using factories to seed random data, I might use a little random check to use an existing model for some relationships so not everything ends up creating new models for its own relations. It helps seeded data feel a lot more realistic to use. https://t.co/4GboYEfmcM

🍭 You can utilise the Illuminate\Support Str + Arr classes in views without importing them No need to reach for a fully qualified name or the str_ / arr_ helpers They are defined as an alias in config/app.php which makes them available in the root namespace They just work™️ https://t.co/gUcutOebUL

🔥 I often find myself keeping validation rules in a method on the model. This lets me reuse them wherever I may need - including in controllers or form requests. https://t.co/QDjYFEN2vM

#Laravel tip of the day: if you want to have active/inactive (or, in other words, banned/suspended) users in your database, just add this method into your LoginController, it will act like a Middleware. https://t.co/BiMhzFIElF

🔥 Controllers often have the most code as they contain all the business logic. By leveraging native components and expressive methods, we can streamline our controllers while also improving readability. A huge win. Here are some examples of reducing common blocks of code: https://t.co/ZCZXG4iAqa

🔥 Reminder: When testing with Laravel, you can use the from() method to automatically set a referer url. This allows you to test redirects that use the redirect()->back() helper. https://t.co/1ny0hrAY2c
