Upgrade guide

Learn how to upgrade Wire Elements Pro.

Upgrading from v3 to v4

To install the Wire Elements v4, update your composer.json to "wire-elements/pro": "^4.0" and run composer update wire-elements/pro to update to v4.

Requirements for Livewire v3

Remove AlpineJS

Livewire v3 now includes AlpineJS and all Alpine plugins by default. To avoid conflicts, remove any manual references to AlpineJS.

Breaking changes

The upgrade from v3 to v4 introduces a few breaking changes if you have previously published the views. To re-publish your views run the following command:

1php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wire-elements-pro-views --force

If you already upgraded your application to Livewire v3 you can run the following command to review each upgrade step

1php artisan livewire:upgrade –run-only wire-elements-pro-upgrade

The most significant change relates to dispatching events:

$dispatch('modal.open', 'component-name', {user: 1})
$dispatch('modal.open', {component: 'component-name', arguments: {user: 1}})
Livewire.dispatch('modal.open', 'component-name', {user: 1})
Livewire.dispatch('modal.open', {component: 'component-name', arguments: {user: 1}})
$this->dispatch('modal.open', 'component-name', ['user' => 1])
$this->dispatch('modal.open', component: 'component-name', arguments: ['user' => 1]])

Global changes

Update the Wire Elements Config file to the latest version.

1php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wire-elements-pro-config --force

You are now required to register the service provider for each component you want to use. This will ensure resources are only allocated for components you use. You can register the components by adding the service providers to your app.php:

2 'providers' => [
3 // ...
5 /*
6 * Package Service Providers...
7 */
9 \WireElements\Pro\Components\Spotlight\SpotlightServiceProvider::class,
10 \WireElements\Pro\Components\Modal\ModalServiceProvider::class,
11 \WireElements\Pro\Components\SlideOver\SlideOverServiceProvider::class,
12 \WireElements\Pro\Components\Insert\InsertServiceProvider::class,
13 ]

@insert has been deprecated and will be removed in a future release in favor of wep_insert:

1<!-- Before -->
2<textarea @insert(user,command)></textarea>
4<!-- After -->
5<textarea {{ wep_insert(['user', 'command']) }}></textarea>
6<!-- Adding data is only supported by using the wep_insert function -->
7<textarea {{ wep_insert(['user', 'command'], [1,2,3]) }}></textarea>

Modal component changes
