NEW: abort_if() and abort_unless() – two small helpers

Another quick tip out of Laravel world – two new helper functions in the newest 5.2.22 version of the framework. They deal with abort() statement but make it a little prettier. Here’s how.

The usual way we do check-abort procedure:

if (!$order) {
  abort(404);
}

Now you can do it in one line:

abort_if(!$order, 404);

Isn’t Laravel awesome?

And there’s also a direct opposite new function – abort_unless(). They were both introduced with a commit 18 days ago – here’s how it looks internally:

laravel abort_if

Simple but nice, huh?
