You could just turn it off. I agree it is a slightly opinionated middleware and depends on your application's needs. That's why it's in the app-level HTTP kernel for easy disabling.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Why Laravel Dropped Elixir? Why Forcing Vue.js? What Is It That You Are Trying To Fix? • 9 months ago

I can't understand how anyone can sit down and look at a fresh Laravel application and walk away with the impression: "I'm force to use Vue"... the welcome page doesn't use Vue, the make:auth pages don't use Vue. I don't get it.

Can you all try with the latest package.json in the laravel/laravel repository:

@RamyTalal if you come across them can you submit them to github.com/laravel/docs?

TaylorOtwell started a new conversation Laravel 5.3 Wish List • 1 year ago

The current plan is to release Laravel 5.3 around the same time as Laracon (July 27-29th).

Please share your feature wish list for this release! :)

Locally I would suggest just using the "database" queue driver and MySQL (which you can install via Brew).

Yeah I've heard on Twitter from people already using Bash on Windows that it works great!

TaylorOtwell started a new conversation Installing On Windows • 1 year ago

Hey everyone,

I added some documentation regarding installing on Windows machine and my recommended approach to the problem:

Note well that a similar product in ASP.NET is $850 on the cheapest tier.

If you want to spend a few weeks writing this all by hand be my guest! :)

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Failed Deployment Of Non Laravel Project • 1 year ago

Hm, I just checked on this in the Forge DB and I'm seeing custom deployment scripts carried over just fine. I checked several sites and their custom deploy commands were in place and the sites had not been updated since the migration. I'm not sure why yours seem to not have carried over.

Has anyone else seen this behavior?

If you're going to use the typical session guard, define a new guard in your authentication configuration. If you want the default AuthenticatesUsers trait to use this guard for its login, you need to set the new guard as the default as well at the top of the configuration file.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Laravel/Homestead : Php7.0-fpm: Unrecognized Service • 1 year ago

Sounds like you need to upgrade your actual Homestead installation. You only upgraded the box.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on App\Exceptions\Handler.report Retuning Void - Supposedly. • 1 year ago

The return statement is not really needed here and could probably be removed.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Fresh Install, Blank Page Only • 1 year ago

Yeah, most likely a permission problem. But definitely recommend Homestead: http://laravel.com/docs/homestead

I love using $this->validate in my controllers. It's one of my favorite Laravel features :)

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Envoyer.io Forge ??? • 2 years ago

They really aren't similar at all. Forge manages sub-domains, Nginx, Cron jobs, SSL certificates, queue daemons, recipes, etc. Envoyer does none of those things. Envoyer is solely focused on deploying PHP applications to multiple servers with zero downtime.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Which Session Driver Is Better • 2 years ago

Either are probably fine for most applications. If you are planning on scaling to multiple servers you will not want to use the file driver.

I personally typically use the "cookie" driver because I don't store much data in session and it requires zero additional storage mechanisms.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Envoyer.io Forge ??? • 2 years ago

Jeffrey is correct. Envoyer doesn't build servers, it just deploys with zero-downtime to multiple servers in parallel.

It is not a part of Forge because not everyone who wants zero-downtime deployment also needs to build servers via Forge, so it doesn't make sense to tightly couple them in that way.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Laravel Just Jumped The Shark ... Annotations • 3 years ago

@tag - you don't understand the new features that you are complaining about, so maybe you should actually research them first.

In a middleware you CAN do $request->route(), $request->user(), $request->session(), etc.

Good grief people whining and moaning about stuff they don't even understand is getting old.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Composer Error • 3 years ago

It was renamed to PasswordResetServiceProvider.

Look at the laravel/laravel repository to stay up to date. No need to e-mail me :)

TaylorOtwell left a reply on Informal Poll: Routes File • 3 years ago

Thanks for responses so far. To ask another question: Are you satisfied with its location in Laravel 5?

TaylorOtwell left a reply on New Middleware Folder In Laravel 5 • 3 years ago

To clarify, filters are still available to use and assign to routes, because I don't want to break people's filter setups. However, going forward, we will be encouraging middlewares as they have a consistent signature across all types of requests.

TaylorOtwell started a new conversation Informal Poll: Routes File • 3 years ago

Quick little informal poll here...

Currently, Laravel 5 ships with a "routes.php" file in the App\Http directory. This file is included by the RouteServiceProvider.

Do you think we should continue to include this file by default, or let someone include their own routes file (that they create) if they wish from their RouteServiceProvider?

TaylorOtwell left a reply on New Blade Tag For Unescaped Data. Thoughts? • 3 years ago

@thepsion5 - I actually didn't go with that syntax for the very reason you stated. It blends in with the other Blade syntax for "echo" too much. I wanted something that stands in stark contrast to most other Blade echos so that it is visually obvious you are echoing un-escaped text.

TaylorOtwell left a reply on New Blade Tag For Unescaped Data. Thoughts? • 3 years ago

Just following up on this. If you are using 4.3 / 5.0 already and want to use the old Blade tag behavior, you should actually do this:

Blade::setEchoFormat('%s');

TaylorOtwell left a reply on New Blade Tag For Unescaped Data. Thoughts? • 3 years ago

Thanks for the thoughts everyone. Should point that that you could be able to do Blade::setRawTags($openTag, $closeTag) to set the raw tags back to {{ }} if you wish.

As another poster mentioned, the HTML and Form components are not "deleted", but merely dropped from the core. There are a few reasons for this, but the primary one is to turn Form and HTML helpers over the innovation of the community at large. There are several different approaches to writing forms and it's actually a pretty complicated topic. I would rather let the community hack on that and release several cool packages that can occupy that space.

Regarding Laravel 4.3 vs. Laravel 5.0 - I am leaning with 5.0 at this point, even though I still feel the upgrade isn't that large, especially if you use providers for running the legacy folder structure and use the Blade::setRawTags method to keep the current Blade escaping logic.
