Expression Expected Window.Laravel.userId =

- 1 answer

I am building an app using Laravel, Vuejs and editor 'PHPstorm'

I wrote following code in my app.blade.php file inside <head></head> tag

@if(!auth()->guest())
        <script type="text/ecmascript-6">
            window.Laravel.userId = <?php echo auth()->user()->id; ?>
        </script>
    @endif


</head>
<body>

it is showing 'expression expected' error in phpstorm. enter image description here what is the solution for that?

(note new updations of my question) then My next question is that I want to use this in my app.js file

console.log(window.Laravel.userId)

if(window.Laravel.userId){

is the above code is the right way to use it in .js file or there is a better solution??

(new update) My code

Here I add my code app.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="{{ app()->getLocale() }}">

The main task of code

Actually, My code's main theme or task is that I want to use or get the logged-in user information in any scripts specially .js file. That's why First I set up or define logged user info .. the following code in app.blade.php

@if(!auth()->guest()) window.Laravel.userId = user()->id; ?> @endif

Then since I need logged-in user id .so I called it by the following code in app.js

console.log(window.Laravel.userId)

My answer from @vivek_23

<script type="text/ecmascript">
        window.Laravel = JSON.parse('<?php echo json_encode([
                'csrfToken' => csrf_token(),
        ]); ?>');
    </script>

<!-- This makes the current user's id available in javascript -->

    @if(!auth()->guest())
        <script>
            window.Laravel.userId = '<?php echo auth()->user()->id; ?>'
        </script>
    @endif

Answer

Add single quotes in your expression or I would suggest you to better use interpolation {{}} which Laravel blade syntax provides.

<script type="text/ecmascript-6">
            window.Laravel = {{ json_encode(['csrf_token' => csrf_token()]) }};
</script>

@if(!auth()->guest())
        <script type="text/ecmascript-6">
            window.Laravel.userId = {{ auth()->user()->id }};
        </script>
@endif

#Update:

<script type="text/ecmascript-6">
        window.Laravel = '<?php echo json_encode([
                'csrfToken' => csrf_token(),
        ]); ?>'
</script>

Your code above has a string(JSON string) in window.Laravel and not a JSON object. You could do an additional JSON.parse() to make it a JSON object as below.

<script type="text/ecmascript">
        window.Laravel = JSON.parse('<?php echo json_encode([
                'csrfToken' => csrf_token(),
        ]); ?>');
</script>

Now, you are trying to get logged-in user ID.

<script>
        window.Laravel.userId = '<?php echo auth()->user()->id; ?>'
</script>

This code above would work as is because we have fixed type of window.Laravel from JSON string to object.

But best is to keep it as integer/number itself.

<script>
      window.Laravel.userId = <?php echo auth()->user()->id; ?>;
</script>

Suggestion:

Since you are using Laravel framework, it's better to always go with Laravel blade syntax than dealing with PHP tags. So, it would change your code snippets as below:

<script type="text/ecmascript">
        window.Laravel = {!! json_encode(['csrfToken' => csrf_token()]) !!};
</script>

<script>
      window.Laravel.userId = {{ auth()->user()->id }};
</script>

Notice the use of {!! !!} instead of {{ }}. This is because when you use normal interpolation, Laravel automatically escapes string content to prevent XSS attacks by passing it via htmlspecialchars(). We need to use {{}} if we are trying to print any user supplied information. In your case, you are generating a csrf token and sending token to client side. Hence, it is safe to print data unescaped.

More information is here.

Since Laravel 5.5, we can directly use the @json blade directive.

<script type="text/ecmascript">
        window.Laravel = @json([
                'csrfToken' => csrf_token()
        ]);
</script>
