How to throw a 404 error if a record is not found.

Here is an extremely short yet readable way to throw a "page not found" HTTP error when a record is not found in your Laravel app.

public function getPost($id)
    $post = Article::find($id) or App::abort(404);
    return View::make('frontend/post', compact('post'));

Laravel is special because it allows us to keep our codebase extremely concise. Since some trade-offs have been made within the framework to allow for that, we should maximize the benefit by writing in a smarter way.
