Replied to Composer Install Repositories With Dev-master Dependencies

Just use version constraints and reference your replacement dependencies as needed. This article will walk you through the constraint nomenclature. https://getcomposer.org/doc/articles/versions.md

Replied to Task Management Model For Many Services In My Application?

Leverage polymorphic relationships . Reading through the documentation using the link below should give you the guidance you need. There are practical examples below each polymorphic relationship type.

Replied to Grouping By First Letter?

This video from Jeffrey will show you how to do it with php. He essentially modifies an eloquent query so that all of the returned records are grouped by first letter. Depending on your use case, this may be a cleaner option so the code to sort isn't making clutter on the front-end.

Replied to Page Without Reloading In Laravel

Not quite clear what you are trying to do. If you need to update a page without reloading, you have AJAX as an option or web sockets. Web sockets support in Laravel can be researched here: https://laravel.com/docs/5.8/broadcasting

Replied to Mix Specific Files Based On Flag

I guess you could read your question two ways. If you want to have multiple (separate) mix files and run them independently, check out this repo. It might be a valid approach for what you need depending on how many sections you have to your site.

Replied to Source/Destination Dropdown

The ISO 3166 standard will supply countries, regions, subdivisions, etc. with their standardized abbreviations but this standard doesn't get down to the city level. Try to keep to a standard when possible.

Replied to Mix Specific Files Based On Flag

Shouldn't be a problem. Just tell mix where you want to put them.

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

// 1. A single src and output path.
mix.js('src/app.js', 'dist/app.js');

// 2. For additional src files that should be
// bundled together:
mix.js([
    'src/app.js',
    'src/another.js'
], 'dist/app.js');

// 3. For multiple entry/output points:
mix.js('src/app.js', 'dist/')
   .js('src/forum.js', 'dist/');

Commented on Tabs

Hey Jeffrey. Could you cover your approach to cascading drop downs in a form? Perhaps an autocomplete integration as well? Much thanks for all that you do.
