Blade tip: @unless instead of @if-statement

Another quick tip for you guys from Laravel world – this time it’s about Blade template engine.

We have all been in a situation where we had to write something like this:

@if (!Auth::check())
    Please log in.

It works and it’s ok to write it but Laravel has a way better solution:

@unless (Auth::check())
    You are not signed in.

Another example – let’s say we have to show our posts, unless there are no posts:

@unless(count($posts) == 0)
{{ $post->title }}

The command @unless checks if our expression returns FALSE – then shows the following data. If the expression returns TRUE – it will ignore the inner part.
