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.
@endif
It works and it's ok to write it but Laravel has a way better solution:
@unless (Auth::check())
    You are not signed in.
@endunless
Another example - let's say we have to show our posts, unless there are no posts:
@unless(count($posts) == 0)
    
{{ $post->title }}
@endunless
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.
