brandonviles started a new conversation Full Window Video

Hey, was just wondering about how the possibility of a full window display of the videos rather than default and full screen mode. I only have one monitor and it would be nice to make the video scale with the windows in a full windows mode if possible? Not the biggest deal but would make life a lot easier.

@RachidLaasri, The link you gave is including the period at the end, you may want to edit your post so others who find this will not be confused when they get an error by following the link. Also, thanks for the suggestion!

brandonviles left a reply on RSS Feed

Wow, just looked at the bottom of the page and saw RSS. Guess I should have looked before I started a thread.

brandonviles started a new conversation RSS Feed

I don't know about everyone else, but a cool little feature would maybe be an RSS feed that gets updated when a new episode arrives. Just a thought, would be awesome to have laracasts updates in my conky.

Never heard of it until now!

Yeah, they're not developing too much if they are still using IE.

I'm going to take a crack at this having never done it.

Why not have a jobs table in a database, that your pending jobs will write their status to as it hits certain points in it's lifecycle.

Then you can fetch this data from the database, asynchronously even, and display it to the user.

brandonviles left a reply on Homestead Cannot Connect To Database?

there are two database.php config files:

app/config/database.php
app/config/local/database.php

It is probably detecting a local environment, thus using the local database configuration.

@getvma - Just ask Microsoft to fix their browser. :D

brandonviles left a reply on Explicit Routes Vs Resources

Thanks for clarifying that!

brandonviles started a new conversation Explicit Routes Vs Resources

Is there any functional difference between a route resource and explicitly setting the routes to match what the resource would have created?

Is there anything that I can do with one that the other can't do?

brandonviles left a reply on Deployment Scripts

Ok, thanks for that tidbit! Currently I have no classes in /app/config/compile.php, I am using psr-4 in composer.json. Definitely something I will look into soon though!

brandonviles left a reply on Deployment Scripts

Ok, just did:

$ composer install -o

Returned:

Loading composer repositories with package information
Installing dependencies (including require-dev) from lock file
Nothing to install or update
Generating optimized autoload files
Generating optimized class loader

Guess I answered my own question.

brandonviles started a new conversation Deployment Scripts

Hello!

Two short questions:

Does "composer install" configure autoloading?

If not, is there anything wrong with adding "composer dump-autoload - o" to deploy script?

Also, someone in Freenode#composer said I could do "composer install -o". Not sure what that is about

brandonviles left a reply on Cashier Without Stripe CC Payments (Checks, Cash, Money Order)

I wasn't looking at it for a payment service, I was more wanting to use it for invoicing and subscription management. Rolling my own isn't a problem, just thought I would take advantage of the package if it would allow me to accept other payment methods than credit card. Thanks for your reply and advice.

brandonviles started a new conversation Cashier Without Stripe CC Payments (Checks, Cash, Money Order)

Is it possible with relative ease to implement Laravel Cashier without billing with Stripe. My client does not want to accept credit cards. They want to accept checks and mark as paid on receipt.
