codenihal left a reply on Javascript Frameworks?

Ok, I finally decided on using Laravel as an API.

codenihal left a reply on Javascript Frameworks?

The thing I don't understand is, how am I supposed to do this stuff without relegating laravel to being a persistence layer while the app lives in the js framework?

codenihal started a new conversation Javascript Frameworks?

I am a PHP Developer who works primarily with Laravel.

I have very little experience with Javacript ( primarily jQuery Plugins ^_^ )

I just saw a project which would require a lot of interactivity, and after consulting a few colleagues, they told me to use one of the modern Javascript Frameworks. and then, when I consulted Google... I was like...

¯_(ツ)_/¯.

The overwhelming number of tools, and Frameworks and ideologies just sent me to, well, I don't know since, I'm still there, and thats what I want to know...

Where the hell am I? and where do I go?

Ok, so JS Frameworks are a better way to organize your Javascript.... So?

Do I use Laravel and send stuff to my views and use this stuff like jQuery? (NO)

Do I use Laravel to create an API and use Ember or somethin to build the application ( Too Hard )

What do I do here? What are my options and how do I integrate a Javascript Framework, and a PHP Application ( built on a framework )?I'm just ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

codenihal left a reply on Trouble Testing With Symfony/http-kernel And PHPUnit

Fixed it, I needed to use the full namespace as in \Symfony...

codenihal started a new conversation Trouble Testing With Symfony/http-kernel And PHPUnit

My code is here

  public function handle(Request $request, $type = self::MASTER_REQUEST,     $catch =true)
      {
        return new Response();
     }

and this is my test

class CoreTest extends PHPUnit_Framework_TestCase
{
    public function testHandle() {
        $request = new Request(["/"]);
        $core = new Core();
        $d = $core->handle($request);
        $this->assertInstanceOf('Response',$d);
    }
}

My Tests fail, why?

codenihal left a reply on L5 Directory Structure. Simplified.

I'm starting to get it. I was just overwhelmed of how much a paradigm shift L5 is from L4. There is so much new quick boilerplate and lot of stuff is pre done. Thats pretty amazing. Especially the new Directory Structure and Elixir and Validation with Form Requests and..... Phew!!! Its so easy, I have to kind of forget the difficult way.

Thanks a lot for helping me out, Jeffrey.

@JeffreyWay What Middle Ware and the pre-added boiler plate Auth? Can I get rid of those?

codenihal started a new conversation L5 Directory Structure. Simplified.

I've been developing for over 2 years in Laravel and V5 has been quite a radical change for me. The Directory Structure just looks too complex. with resources/ and Http/ and the Authentication Class and everything else.

Is there a way for me to make this cleaner so that its easier to work with?

codenihal started a new conversation Advance Socialite Lesson With Other API Queries

If Possible, Could @JeffreyWay create a Lesson dealing with how to call custom API Request with Socialite.

Like Publishing a Post. I know this is possible with Twitter and Guzzle but How would I do the same thing with Facebook and so on

codenihal left a reply on Improving A Basic Blog : Do By Learning

Pretty noob mistake

codenihal left a reply on Informal Poll: Routes File

Just put in an artisan command that generates the routes.php

codenihal left a reply on Learning Road Maps

Or maybe something like a quick quiz at registration to build a custom roadmap. Like, are you familiar with PHPSpec, Behat or Testing in General or Do you use PHPStorm? .

Or he could make something like a flowchart.

Someone needs to call in Jeffrey. Where is he? @JeffreyWay

I watched the small objects and refactoring stories lesson and saw some sort of guzzle magic going on with Twitter OAuth.

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@claudiu I forgot everything about it except the name a long time.

@keevitaja I meant it in the sense that, there are situations when the strategy pattern is not appropriate or you just need not go to the trouble of doing the factory pattern just because you can when you have a better, simpler way.Any about the last line, I almost seemed to say the exact same thing in the intro of my book.

@keevitaja codebabes is not really for 8 year olds

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@keevitaja The ORM was meant to be mistaken by beginners as pseudocode. Pretty simple right.

@claudiu I understand that Design Patterns are not appropriate everywhere. I spend every chapter stressing that , and giving examples of wrong usages. and code was always, always fun for me.

@keevitaja It is true, started with tutsplus and sadly w3schools since 8 years ago. But started professionally 6 years ago. And english is not my native language, but I learnt it before I learn't any other language

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

Ok, what did you think about the chapter in the sample?

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@claudiu I did not make the mistake of assuming that mine is the best resource. I added this stuff and the tutsplus article to the bibliography as some of their expressions and metaphors were very succinct. We will be covering most of the design patterns in a simple, easy to understand order.

Thanks for stopping by to comment and for the feedback, I will be updating the cover image and once again, thanks.

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@codeatbusiness I will be updating it per day with at least 2 design patterns. So, the TOC will be updated regularly.

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@claudiu The Book will be a catalog of Design Patterns explained as simple as I possibly can.

It will have content on Laravel and its implementation of the the Patterns as an additional Appendix.

As to the questions :

  • is this book in relation with GoF book?

-> In the sense that it is focused on a language and its issues and problems. YES

  • is this book special for php issues and problems

-> Yes.

  • is this book a best practice with php and design patterns

-> Yes

  • will this book provide me values as, objects in rails, gof book,poodr book

-> This is not an OOP book. Its a Design Patterns book. as to the gof book, I believe that the writers are far more experienced than me or at least I hope so, since I bought 2 of them. ;). A basic idea of OOP is necessary. AS to the values, we will be covering SOLID and the rest. and throw in some stuff here and there.

  • what is your experience in the programming world?

-> I have been a web developer for the past 6 years and recently started my company, Paradigm Shift. I am a Laravel Evangelist. I am 14, if thats not a disqualification. I love my work. and no offence taken.

codenihal left a reply on PHP Design Patterns: An Introduction

@keevitaja The Cover Image was a pretty quick piece of work, so didn't have time to work on it much. I will fix it later tonight. Check the landing page, its only 25 % complete. I published it early because I didn't want to be caught in an overload of problems later.

codenihal left a reply on Easy To Use And Powerful OAuth Package

What about that guzzle thingy?

codenihal left a reply on Easy To Use And Powerful OAuth Package

How is that better than oauth-4-laravel?

codenihal started a new conversation Easy To Use And Powerful OAuth Package

I am working on a Social Media App similar to HootSuite and want an OAuth Package that works well.

I like Socialite and the idea of it, but how do I send custom API queries like posting something.

and there is oauth-4-laravel by artdarek, but it doesn't seem to be too clean.

Which should I use?

and @JeffreyWay , I saw you use some guzzle oauth Subscriber thing, What is that and does it work with Facebook?

Find a PDF processing Package or create a class and put it in a PSR-4 Namespaced Folder to help you with that.

Create Seperate Controllers for the different Tasks you need. If you still feel out of your depth, then in the Laracasts nav bar , under browse,you will see a link called 'How Do I?'. Work your way through the Solid Section and also the PSR-4 lesson

Why did they make it like this? The old blade syntax is much better, now two combinations and everything... This seems like a rapid departure for Laravel's 'tradition'
