Awarded Best Reply on Count Items Per Day In Week

Found out my self. Here is the code,

$dates = collect();
foreach( range( -6, 0 ) AS $i ) {
    $date = Carbon::now()->addDays( $i )->format( 'Y-m-d' );
    $dates->put( $date, 0);
}

// Get the post counts
$posts = Post::where( 'created_at', '>=', $dates->keys()->first() )
             ->groupBy( 'date' )
             ->orderBy( 'date' )
             ->get( [
                 DB::raw( 'DATE( created_at ) as date' ),
                 DB::raw( 'COUNT( * ) as "count"' )
             ] )
             ->pluck( 'count', 'date' );

// Merge the two collections; any results in `$posts` will overwrite the zero-value in `$dates`
$dates = $dates->merge( $posts );

Started a new Conversation Count Items Per Day In Week

Does anyone know how to group data by week like for instance, all posts created during the period of the last 7 days starting from Sunday?

return Post::where('user_id, 1)->select('id', 'created_at')
    ->get()->groupBy(function ($post) {
        return Carbon::parse($post->created_at)->format('d');
    });

And then make them into an array like so,

[
    'Sun' => 2,
   'Mon' => 1,
   etc...
];

Replied to View As Response From Post Request

What about a drop down of the dimensions? E.x. 3x4x5, 6x7x8

Replied to View As Response From Post Request

@tykus Also, do I list all available traits of a data collection like for instance dimensions like height, width or do I just show suggestions of estimated values of the said trait.

Replied to View As Response From Post Request

@tykus Good point. I never thought of it that way. This is for filtering data but I always thought that the URL looked like a mess that's why I thought of using a post request instead.

@jlrdw It's not for a complex bit of logic likes yours. It's more like to filter down results.

Is it a good practice to receive a view as a response of a post request?

Started a new Conversation How To Make Eloquent Belongs To Many And Has One Relationship On Same Model.

I have a Project model with belongsToMany relationship for project_memebers pivot table but I need to specify that a project can only have a single user with the manager role with all the others having member roles.

How can I achieve this?

  /**
     * Get all members that are assigned to the team.
     *
     * @return \Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Relations\BelongsToMany
     */
    public function members()
    {
        return $this->belongsToMany(User::class, 'project_members')
                    ->withTimestamps();
    }

Started a new Conversation How To Format Vue JS DateTime Picker Input Date

I need to make a datetime picker using vue in Laravel and I found this one https://github.com/mariomka/vue-datetime. It's quite nice.

The problem is that when the data is sent to the server, Carbon\Carbon cries out saying Unexpected data found.Trailing data and InvalidArgumentException.

I suspect it's beacuase of the datetime format thats being sent to the back-end.

The current formt that is sent looks like this 2019-12-26T18:09:00.000Z, JavaScript ISO 8601 standard or something.

Anyone know how to fix this?
