Replied to Xdebug From The Command Line

Following this I can set up a vagrant box with xdebug, but I'm still unsure of how to do it on my local host when running unit tests on exercism. I dont go through vagrant when doing this challenges I just pull the code to my local machine, and load it up in php storm. It would be great if i could run the tests and step through them / the code as I solve them. @bobbybouwmann Thanks for all the help so far i book marked that handbook its great.

Started a new Conversation Xdebug From The Command Line

I'm jumping back into solving problems on https://exercism.io/my/tracks/php each problem comes with a _test.php file you run the test from the command line using phpunit file_test.php everything fails then you write the code to make them pass and submit. What would be great if i could set break points in my php storm so I could step through. All the tutorials ive found are for setting this up for a laravel application on a web server. Does anyone know of a way to set this up for just running a php test script.

Replied to Developing Composer Package Locally

2 seconds after posting tried and got what i wanted by running npm run dev inside vendor\protoqol\prequel if anyone has better or more "right" options let me know

Started a new Conversation Developing Composer Package Locally

Running app on laravel homestead, and running all commands on local machine, because the changes I'm going to be making are all front end changes.

I recently began trying to contribute to an open source composer package. https://github.com/Protoqol/Prequel the closest I got was following this https://barryvanveen.nl/blog/44-package-development-run-a-package-from-a-local-directory , through lots of trail and error.

added this to laravel project

    "repositories":[
        {
            "type": "path",
            "url": "../prequel"
        }
    ],

ran composer require protoqol/prequel dev-master

no errors

  - Installing protoqol/prequel (dev-master): Junctioning from ../prequel
Writing lock file

so when making a change on a vue component in my local master branch in the prequel package repo the change appears in my test app vendor folder prequel vue component code

so i run $ php artisan vendor:publish --tag=config $ php artisan vendor:publish --tag=public

The front end change just changed some text, doesnt show up on the actual web site. I tried to run npm run dev, npm run watch, clear caches etc, the change still doesnt appear what am i missing.

Started a new Conversation Vue Router, Nice Looking Routes And Passing Data

Currently i have a router link like such

<router-link to="/search/quotes"><li class="hover:bg-gray-200 px-6 py-3">{{tag.name}}</li></router-link>

it loads the following route

    mode: 'history',

    linkActiveClass: 'border-b-2 border-black font-medium text-black',

    routes: [

        {
            path: '/',
            component: Home
        },
        {
            path: '/search/quotes',
            component: QuoteSearchPage
        }
    ]
};

how would one do something like <router-link to="/search/quotes/{{tag.name}}">

  • {{tag.name}}
  • </router-link>

    and then the address bar would have say /search/quotes/red, then how do I access that last /red, I've look into passing data via vue js router but the address bar would always says something like%object and more random stuff that looks strange
