Replied to Videos Stopped Working?

...because Google Cloud is down.

Digging deeper, it seems Google Cloud has a problem that has daisychained to Vimeo and Laracasts.

Activity icon

Replied to Laracast Server Problems?

Yes. Perhaps Laracasts should review that. Vimeo is damaging their brand.

Laracasts have so many video productions (thanks!) it shouldn't be too difficult to consider an alternative that has high up time and works with modern browser technology.

Started a new conversation Correct Way To Use Mix For JQuery?

See how someone excellently set out the (common) issue, albeit some time ago: https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/javascript/jquery-and-laravel-mix-why-you-no-work

I've tried different methods from time to time. They work. Then they don't work. For example, this with Laravel 5.8 and latest Mix...

const mix = require('laravel-mix'); require('laravel-mix-purgecss');

mix.autoload({ jquery: ['$', 'global.jQuery', 'jQuery', 'global.$', 'window.jQuery'] }); mix.scripts([ 'jquery' ], 'public/js/jquery-scripts.js');

In fresh project, package.json includes...

"devDependencies": {
    "jquery": "^3.4.1",
    "jquery.appear": "^1.0.1",
    "laravel-mix": "^4.0.7",
    "laravel-mix-purgecss": "^4.1.0",
...
}

npm install --only=dev delivers node_modules folder to the project root.

npm run dev returns a successful compile. After page load FF Web Console returns...

ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined

Q: What is the right way to set up a new project to compile JS files with Mix, using npm installs in node_modules (like jQuery) and .js files held in app/resources/js/?

Figures. Thanks! Upon checking, it looks like they've been down several hours.

Vimeo have problems with simple content blockers like Privacy Badger too. They can no longer scrape data at will: they must ask, or adapt to display with modern systems.

I guess if I have to rely on Vimeo I should look for my regular brain updates elsewhere, take my subscription too. I don't want to waste my Sunday evenings.

Looks like you need to take a serious look at characters in form scripts for posts. For example, *

Sunday. UK. Ideal time to refresh brain with Laracast dump. It's not there though,* run away, refuses to play. This is like a fruuustration pill.

Laravel Mix. Can you please put down your beer and switch video servers back on? PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!

Update: It's not only Mix. I pay for this service {nudge}{nudge}
