Embrace the Frontend with Laravel, VueJS and Optimistic UI

Submitted by markoshust Sat, 07/28/2018 - 18:24

I just came back from an absolutely fantastic trip and conference of LaraCon in Chicago. Even though I no longer work daily with Laravel, I thought there were so many good sessions presented, and that going would benefit anyone having an interest in web development.

Migrate large amounts of data in Laravel with Artisan Console and Chunk

Submitted by markoshust Wed, 10/25/2017 - 13:35

I've recently had to create a script to migrate a large amount of data post-deployment. This presented a couple issues; one being that the script needed to be performant, another being that since it took at least a few minutes to run on a couple hundred thousand rows, I needed to display the status of the script for devops so it didn't appear to be hungup or failed.

Enable Bootstrap 4 in Laravel 5.5

Submitted by markoshust Wed, 09/13/2017 - 11:59

Laravel 5.5 just recently got released, and ships with the current stable version of Bootstrap, which is version 3. However, Bootstrap 4 recently hit beta, and should now be solid enough to start development with, especially for new Laravel projects that are just now getting started.

Bootstrap 4 can be easily enabled following these steps. First, remove the Laravel-supplied version of bootstrap-sass from npm:

npm uninstall --save-dev bootstrap-sass
