In a recent post to the Laravel News site, there's a post showing how to make use of a PHP package for storing and retrieving global settings that are then store them locally on the filesystem as a JSON-formatted document. In applications it is often useful to have a way to store some global settings. These settings are not related to a specific model, such as a user, but to the system as a whole. You can achieve this with Eloquent, of course, but I never felt that was the right approach given you are saving non-relational data in a relational system. I found Spatie's Valuestore package to be the perfect fit for creating a settings repository for an application. The package will take your settings and store them as a JSON file on the local filesystem. Let's use the example of having a banner notification at the top of your application. The banner notification is visible on every page and an admin can update the text it contains. The tutorial walks you through the installation of the package via Composer and how to create the initial Valuestore instance, pointing it to a file on the local disk. It includes sample code showing how to push and pull values from the store including in your Blade templates. The tutorial also shows the binding of the store to the container and how to define it as a global helper.

Latest PECL Releases:smbclient 1.0.1 -- Code fixes for PHP 7.4/8, and memory free, ReadTest added, Travis build updated, and smbclient_state_init documentation fixed. igbinary 3.2.1 * Fix crash when unserializing if __serialize was defined but __unserialize was undefined in php 8.0+ (due to typo). base58 1.0.2 Casing fix config.m4 igbinary 3.2.0 * Use PHP's shared empty array instance when unserializing empty arrays in php 7.3+. (helps slightly with memory usage when repeatedly unserializing, when removing elements from arrays before unserializing them, or when serializing values including an empty array that was unserialized) * Emit a deprecation notice when serializing resources. PHP itself is converting many resources to objects that throw an Error on serialization attempts. Continue to represent resources as null in the serialized data. * Fix memory management bug when unserializing invalid data (duplicate properties in objects (e.g. from `__sleep`) or duplicate fields in arrays (impossible for valid data)). * Speed up calls to `__serialize`/`__unserialize` in php 8.0+. * Fix error messages for unserialize_callback_func: make messages properly refer to the autoload function. * Optimize unserializing alternative names for private/protected constants that were previously public. base58 1.0.1 Release as v1.0.1 with build fix base58 1.0.0 Release as v1.0.0 rdkafka 4.1.2 BREAKING CHANGE: Since version 4.0, the client no longer polls for network events at shutdown (during object destructor). This behaviour didn't give enough control to the user in case of server issue, and could cause the script to hang while terminating. Starting from 4.0, programs MUST call flush() before shutting down, otherwise some messages and callbacks may be lost. Enhancements Enabled features on windows build: headers, purge, murmur (#410, @nick-zh, @cmb69) orng 0.0.3 - Support Windows (Thanks cmb) - Fix stabilities, currently NOT stable. swoole 4.5.10 Fixed --- * Fixed #3906, sync master (93901dc0) (@matyhtf) * Fixed PHP8 compatibility (f0dc6d32) (@matyhtf) * Fixed connection_list error (#3948) (@sy-records) swoole 4.4.23 Fixed --- * Fixed table bugs * Fixed sync client error info (#3784) * Fixed memory overread when parse form-data boundary (#3858) * Fixed the bug of the channel, the data that has enqueue cannot be popped after the close ibm_db2 2.1.2 * 2020-12-22: 2.1.2 - Fix memory leaks - Remove PHP 5 compatibility stubs and ifdefs - Fix compile warnings - Use PHP 8 arginfo generator, with generated fallbacks for PHP 7
