ahmedmsvb started a new conversation Laravel Passport - Two Questions • 3 months ago


I'm developing a mobile application that connects to a Laravel back-end via API. I use Passport for authentication to all my API routes.

The questions are:

  1. Will calling the refresh token everytime the app is launched considered an overhead?
  2. Using migrate:refresh in development/test environment will destroy the client id & client secret, is there a way to keep my client secret during the migrate:refresh?

ahmedmsvb left a reply on How To Get All Comments Of All Tasks Of All Sprints • 5 months ago


You need nested eager loading, this is an example from Laravel documentation:

To eager load nested relationships, you may use "dot" syntax. For example, let's eager load all of the book's authors and all of the author's personal contacts in one Eloquent statement: $books = App\Book::with('author.contacts')->get();

so, you need to modify:

$sprints = Project::first()->sprints()->with('tasks')->get();


$sprints = Project::first()->sprints()->with('tasks.comments')->get();

+1 for making some effort while posting a new question

DB::select('select curdate() ');

According to laravel docs

The select method will always return an array of results. Each result within the array will be a PHP StdClass object, allowing you to access the values of the results.


DB::select('select curdate() as cur_date')[0]->cur_date;

are loaded against the parent model "Todo_category".

I'm expecting you need to load them inside the "->with(['todos' => function ..." part

                ->with(['todos' => function($query1) use ($runid,$yearid){
                    $query1->where('run_id', $runid)->where('year_id',$yearid)->with('todoitems');

May be in the "bookings" table you have a "confirmed_booking_date_id" column. Another option is to add a "confirmed_flg" column to the "booking_dates" table.

Change this:

    public function brand(){
        return $this->hasOne('App\Brands', 'brandID');


    public function brand(){
        return $this->belongsTo('App\Brands', 'brandID');

ahmedmsvb started a new conversation [Opinion] Unused Controller Methods • 8 months ago


I'm working on a mid-size project. At the beginning, I was always generating resource controllers (even if I'm not going to use all the methods)

Now, my controllers contain 50% working code and 50% idle empty methods generated from "make controller -r" command.

What is the best practice here:

  1. delete these methods and re-create them as necessary?
  2. or, just keep them just in case I need them later?

(I tend to follow approach #1)

That's what the .env file is used for.

As you stated, use one .env file for local and the other for production.

Regarding the "env('APP_ENV', 'production')," code, it performs the following: 1- Looks for a variable named "APP_ENV" in the .env file. 1.a. If found => return its value. 1.b Otherwise, return the default 'hardcoded' value ('production' in our case).

Usually we add the .env file to our .gitignore. This ensures not overwriting the production or sharing our settings/passwords in different environments.

ahmedmsvb left a reply on Protecting A DELETE Route For The Already Logged-in Users • 10 months ago

But doesn't this break the single responsibility rule? (delete method will be responsible for two actions)

ahmedmsvb left a reply on Protecting A DELETE Route For The Already Logged-in Users • 10 months ago

First of all, thanks!

This will solve my problem the easy way (not sure if I' over-complicating things!)

But what if I need to implement something like the "confirm your password" page displayed by yahoo when editing important profile info?

The flow that I have to implement is: 1- User clicks delete => 2- display the "enter password" page => 3- user enters password and click submit => 4- call the delete action on my model (somehow)

I have several Model objects with their respective "delete" actions, so step #4 needs to be dynamic.

ahmedmsvb started a new conversation Protecting A DELETE Route For The Already Logged-in Users • 10 months ago

I created an application that enforces the users to keep logged-in always (all routes have "auth" middleware)

During specific actions from the user (delete a record for example), I need the user to re-enter his password for verification.

I created a middleware called ConfirmPassword checking for a session-flashed variable (not the best option); if the variable is not set:

  • user must confirm his password
  • set the flash variable => true

The problem happens after I validate the user's password, where the old URL is removed from my session. I tried saving the url as well to the session, but this changed the method from DELETE to GET

Any ideas/help?
