Custom blade directives and lookup tables
Many of us have been dealing with many role based systems in which we have to check on user types , toggle data based on permissions , defining middlewares and authorization classes
Laravel made it easy for us with its proper syntax and all the provided stuff out of the box
Let’s dive into details
Let’s pretend we have User and Role models as below
Ok let’s pretend we have a drop-down list where items are showed based on user role and status
In our case we gonna check if a user is either superadmin or admin as below
That looks a little bit dirty especially if we have further conditions..
Here comes the beauty of Laravel blade directives
We will create a provider class named BladeRolesServiceProvider which will handle all the logic for us
We go back again to out blade view and make some changes
That looks more readable isn’t it ?
Let’s play arround on our BladeRolesServiceProvider.php
Using lookup tables made our code more readable,understandable with getting rid of long switch if/else statements
