@siv - I just checked your account. It's showing 100% complete for "PHP 7 Up and Running" and "The PHP Practitioner" series.

JeffreyWay left a reply on Why Does Generated Controller With Make:model Has Bad Name?

There is no right or wrong for controller naming. That's just the convention Laravel uses. I personally use the plural form, but only out of habit.

Have you taken a look at Laravel Forge? That's what I'd recommend, if building a server directly with DigitalOcean feels overwhelming.

JeffreyWay left a reply on Accessibility On Laracasts

I've considered it for a long time. Truthfully, it just breaks down to cost and time.

Amazon offers automated transcriptions, which are pretty close. Maybe 75% correct, but that would still require me to manually review the entire thing for corrections.

I might hire a freelancer to tackle this for all current and past lessons this summer.

JeffreyWay left a reply on Laravel Mix Failing To Compile In Production On Dynamic Imports

Dynamic imports aren't supported in the latest version of Mix. It's a nasty webpack and CSS extraction issue that we're stuck with until webpack 5 is out. This is noted in the release notes.

JeffreyWay left a reply on Learn It All Wrong First?

It would be far better (for someone learning) to see a demonstration of the correct method followed by reasons it is correct.

The correct way, if there is such a thing, is rarely obvious to newcomers. You have to work through the wrong or less-ideal ways first to understand why one option is preferable to the other. Chanting “do it this way because it’s the right way” helps nobody.

@cuwa - Okay, settle down. You're posting too many snarky replies on the forum. We're all trying to improve and get better. This is a friendly place. Please don't make me delete your account. Be nice.

JeffreyWay left a reply on All Problems With The New Laracasts Design

Is it just me or now you can not watch any videos without a subscription.

Just you. All public videos are still accessible.

I miss the old design's easy way to see if there is new content just by going to the catalog.

Click your username avatar in the top right, and then pick "What's New."

On the CSS end, we used Tailwind extensively. Any visual effects you like are standard CSS animations.

For JS, we use Vue and Lodash.

Thanks @manogi. I've fixed the School in Session bug. I forgot I through that particular achievement checker into a queue. That messed up some of the logic. All fixed now. The next time you perform an action that triggers new experience points, it'll automatically apply that award to your account.

The best reply award count is now correct for everyone. That number is based on all threads that currently have your reply as the best one.

Before, we wouldn’t decrement your award count if a thread author changed their mind about the best reply. Now we do.

JeffreyWay left a reply on XP System Broken

Fake accounts were created that disproportionately liked the replies of certain accounts here.

I deleted those accounts, and am adjusting all stats to be what they should have been.

@dbapro - Most of your comments on this forum are rude or sarcastic. Stop it.

The mean-spirited nature of your comments says far more about you than it does the skill level of the people you're speaking to.

JeffreyWay left a reply on I'm Not Overly Impressed With Laracasts... "laravel New App" = -bash: Laravel: Command Not Found

@kvnkrft You haven't added the Composer global vendor directory to your path. I covered this here:

https://laracasts.com/series/laravel-from-scratch-2017/episodes/1?time=3:55

I recommend going through the video from scratch one more time. Every issue you're experiencing was covered in the video.

JeffreyWay left a reply on I'm Not Overly Impressed With Laracasts... "laravel New App" = -bash: Laravel: Command Not Found

He has a directory called "code" I believe, but I didn't... anyhow.

You don't need a directory, called "code." It's just a folder name. Create it.

"laravel" returns: -bash: laravel: command not found

Sounds like you didn't properly install the Laravel executable. We cover how here: https://laracasts.com/series/laravel-from-scratch-2017/episodes/1?time=2:23
