elias-alea started a new conversation Extract Only Useful CSS Files/rules And JS Code

I have been using laravel for my backend work and integrating html templates for UI. I have been facing the challenge of having too many css files and css rules from these downloaded templates which slows down my apps.

Does anyone know of a good solution to extract only useful css files, rules and js code?

elias-alea started a new conversation SMS Sending, Receiving And Webhook With SMPP

I have a project in mind that will require heavy usage of SMS alerts to end users and allow users to send some response to the system. Owing to the fact that the SMSs will be very many, I don't want to subscribe to commercial SMS APIs like infobip, twillio etc, I would like to use a custom SMPP server implementation in PHP. Has anyone done this before and if so, point me in the right direction.

elias-alea left a reply on Call To Undefined Method App\Custom\DataModel::blogData() Yet The Method Exists

Haha, it's not really lame. Depends on the context.

This is a class on my frontend application. But I get your point though

Hi Snapey, Jawelo.

Thanks for providing the solutions above. I checked and recheked the code only to realize that I had to files with the same class name 'DataModel' and both had the same namespace.

My problem is no more

elias-alea started a new conversation Handling Special Utf-8 Url Encoding

I have a problem where I have a route as follows

Route::get('/{search}/results', ['as' => 'results', 'uses' => '[email protected]'])->where('search', 'buy|rent|land|commercial|new-project');

When a url is passed as follows http://www.buyrentkenya.com/rent/results?locId=112

However, using the following url, http://www.buyrentkenya.com/rent/results%3FlocId%3D112 the url fails

Any way I can handle the UTF-8 characters at routes level

elias-alea left a reply on How Do I Install The Dom Extension For PHP7?

Actually, the problem is related to the extension sudo "php-xml", so sudo apt-get install php-xml should work and indeed it worked for me.

installing php7.0-mbstring is for when you have,

"laravel/framework v5.4.6 requires ext-mbstring * -> the requested PHP extension mbstring is missing from your system."
