Helpers

AdminTW comes in a collection of helpers, located in app/Http/helpers.php

abort_if_cannot

Abort when user does not have permission to perform the requestion action.

For instance abort users from seeing user activity when they don't have permissions from their given roles. The action is looked up as a boolean, it can be used inside if statements.

When the user does not have permission the message will be printed: You do not have permissions to (permission name)


        
            abort_if_cannot('view_users_activity')
           

The helper takes 2 arguments, the name to check and the status code. The default status code is 401.


        
        abort_if_cannot(string $action, int $code = 401)
           

abort_permission

This performs the same as above but when a permission returns false instead of aborting globally an error view is returned, this is helpful if you want to show a message but don't stop the page execution.


        
        abort_permission(string $action, int $code = 401)
           

add_user_log

Pass an array of data to populate the user log. This adds to the user activity table.

The following keys are supported:

  • Title $data['title'] sets the activity title
  • Link $data['link'] a URL link
  • Reference identifier $data['id'] set a reference normally a model's primary key
  • Section $data['section'] identifty the section ie Users, Posts
  • Type $data['type'] sets the type of activity ie Create, Update, Delete

        
        add_user_log(array $data)
           

Example:


    
    add_user_log([
        'title'        => "updated ".$this->user->name."'s password",
        'reference_id' => $this->user->id,
