At this year's Laracon Online Adam Wathan gave a fantastic talk on creating reusable view components. The excellent new post on Adam's blog is basically the written down version of talk. Amazing stuff!

Splitting a component into a presentational component and a renderless component is an extremely useful pattern to master and can make code reuse a lot easier, but it's not always worth it. Use this approach if:

  • You're building a library and you want to make it easy for users to customize how your component looks
  • You have multiple components in your project with very similar behavior but different layouts
