How to check if a Laravel Collection is empty?

0

Issue

I create a view by doing an eloquent query and then pass it over to Blade.

@if($contacts != null)
//display contacts
@else
You dont have contacts
@endif

However it always assume that $contacts has something even if the query gives me nothing.

I did dd($contacts) and get:

Collection {#247 ▼
  #items: []
}

How do I check if it is empty?

Solution

If it is a Eloquent Collection as it appears to be from your example you can use the isEmpty collection helper function;

@if(!$contacts->isEmpty())
//display contacts
@else
You dont have contacts
@endif
