Started a new Conversation Integration Of Quasar 2 In Laravel Jetstream Project Fails

Unfortunately, I'm not getting any further with my problem at the moment and hope that someone has one or two helpful hints for me!

I would like to use the Quasar Framework in a project. The project was completely rebuilt with curl -s | bash. Then I followed the instructions on and installed Jetstream with Inertia. This works without any problems, I can call up the page in the internet browser and everything works. Next, I installed the necessary components for Quasar with npm install [email protected] and npm install [email protected]. I then edited the app.js and adapted it as follows:


// Import modules...
import { createApp, h } from 'vue';
import { App as InertiaApp, plugin as InertiaPlugin } from '@inertiajs/inertia-vue3';
import { Quasar } from 'quasar';

const el = document.getElementById('app');

const app = createApp({
    render: () =>
        h(InertiaApp, {
            initialPage: JSON.parse(,
            resolveComponent: (name) => require(`./Pages/${name}`).default,
    .mixin({ methods: { route } })
    .use(InertiaPlugin, Quasar);


If I then insert a button with <q-btn colour="white" text-color="black" label="Standard" /> in the Welcome.vue file, for example, I get the message Failed to resolve component: q-btn in the JavaScript console.

From another project, still with Vue2, I know that the following setup worked with Quasar:



import { Inertia } from '@inertiajs/inertia';
import { App, plugin } from '@inertiajs/inertia-vue';
import Vue from 'vue';
import './Plugins/Quasar';


const app = document.getElementById('app');

new Vue({
    store: store,
    render: h => h(App, {
        props: {
            initialPage: JSON.parse(,
            resolveComponent: name => require(`./Pages/${name}`).default,

Quasar Plugin:

 * Imports Quasar + styles


import Vue from 'vue';
import iconSet from 'quasar/icon-set/fontawesome-v5';
import Quasar, {
} from 'quasar';

Vue.use(Quasar, {
    components: {
    plugins: {
    config: {
        notify: {},
    iconSet: iconSet

Does anyone have an idea what the correct port would look like to make it work?

I think I did something wrong with my port to Vue3 or?

I think, related changes to laravel code or documentation are right here.

Replied to Best Practice: FirstOrCreate On High Load System

I even subscribed to it, but I probably didn't read that part ^^ I will do better!

But it would actually be great if the problem is known, if Laravel himself offers an implementation that the problem no longer exists. I have also encountered other problems related to heavy loads: It is great to check with Cache::has if something is in the cache. But in the next moment it might happen that when you fetch something from the cache with Cache::get it no longer exists. This forced us to adapt code to make it suitable for high load.

Incredibly fast your answer! Thank you, that looks very good, we will try it out!

Started a new Conversation Best Practice: FirstOrCreate On High Load System

Hello everybody!

We currently have an interesting problem on a system with higher access rates: We are providing an Api Call, which outputs information with appropriate parameters. At the beginning we have a call in the corresponding controller

    $user = \App\Models\User::firstOrCreate([
      'email' => auth()->user()->email

Now we have already had some situations where we found in the logfile the message that the email address could not be added because it already exists (email field is set to unique). In all situations the identical api call is sent three times in a row and then the error occurs. I am convinced that in a fraction of a second the situation occurs that the data set e.g. from the first call has not yet been written, the second call does not find it and tries to create it. In the meantime, the database transaction for creating the record has been executed.

My idea now would be to no longer use firstOrCreate but to execute a search (first) first. If the result is empty, I would create the data set with a Create and if necessary I would generate a short artificial pause with a sleep in the situation to be sure that the data was written. Is that so practical? The alternative would be to create the data sets in advance, but actually I wanted to create the Just in Time to reduce the amount of data to the necessary amount.

What is a good way to proceed here?
