Custom conditionals with Laravel’s Blade Directives

Matt Stauffer explains when and how you can leverage custom blade directives.

One of the greatest aspects of Laravel Blade is that it’s incredibly easy to handle view partials and control logic. I find myself frequently extracting the contents of a loop out to a Blade partial and then passing just a bit of data into the partial.

But sometimes the repetitive code isn’t the view itself, but the conditional logic I’m running.
