Passing Array as Attributes in Blade Component

In React, we can efficiently pass an array or object of props to a component using the spread syntax, as illustrated in the following TypeScript example:

const attrs = {
    name: 'my-title',
    id: 'my-title',
    value: 'my-value'
<TextInput {...attrs} />
// The rendered output will resemble the following:
<input type="text" name="my-title" id="my-title" value="my-value" />

However, when working with PHP and Blade components, the native spread operator cannot be employed to pass an array of attributes directly to the component, as demonstrated in the following Blade example:

$attrs = [
    'name' => 'my-title',
    'id' => 'my-title',
    'value' => 'my-value',
// The following does not produce the expected outcome
<x-input [...$attrs] />

To overcome this limitation, we can utilize the Illuminate\View\ComponentAttributeBag in the Blade component:

<x-input :attributes="new \Illuminate\View\ComponentAttributeBag($attrs)" />

By doing so, within the component, direct access to attributes such as $name, $id, and $value becomes possible. This approach ensures a seamless integration of attribute arrays in Blade components.
