DB Schema helper to toggle foreign key constraints

Patrick Hesselberg contributed a withoutForeignKeyConstraints Schema method to conveniently disable foreign key constraints while managing a DB schema:

// Before

// After
Schema::withoutForeignKeyConstraints(function () {

New fragment helpers

Arko Elsenaar contributed a fragmentIf() method to return a fragment of a view conditionally. Sending a fragment is useful when sending a partial HTML view over the wire in XHR requests, for example:

// Before
if (request()->hasHeader('HX-Request')) {
return view('products.index')->fragment('products-list');

return view('products.index');

// After
return view('products.index')

Arko also contributed a fragments() method to return multiple fragments conveniently:

// Before using concatenation
view('welcome')->fragment('fragment1') …
