laloutre left a reply on Using Passport, Personal Access Token Expiration Behaviour?

Hi ; I'm also disappointed on the expiration thing, experiencing the same. Do Personal tokens never expire?

On your second question, you can select the Personal access client used by the generator (but I don't really understand the point here, like you). It's explained here: https://laravel.com/docs/5.7/passport#personal-access-tokens

If you have already defined a personal access client, you may instruct Passport to use it using the personalAccessClientId method. Typically, this method should be called from the boot method of your AuthServiceProvider

Passport::personalAccessClientId('client-id');

laloutre left a reply on Using Filesystem, Cloud And Queue

Okay, I think either my question is stupid, or I'm the only one to fall in this issue... Well, I'm gonna think of another way to do this.

laloutre started a new conversation Using Filesystem, Cloud And Queue

I my application, users can upload some files in various forms. I use Laravel 5.1 Filesystem, and I tried last week to swap from local file system to a Rackspace instance to store those files.

Everything worked for a bit, but the next day files weren't sent anymore to the Rackspace cloud. In the logs, I saw a lot of 401 Unauthorized errors for those calls.

I've tried to discuss this with the Rackspace support, but nothing really helpful came out of it, except that I'm not hitting some API file limit or file rate.

One think I must add is that I use queues to upload those files. Here is my handle() code for the queued job responsible for the upload:

public function handle(Factory $fileSystemManager)
{
    $fileSystemManager->disk('rackspace')->put(
        $this->dest,
        $fileSystemManager->disk('local')->get($this->src)
    );
}

Note that the FileSystemManager instance is method-injected here.

I was wondering if this could be the problem (since I don't really know the implementation details of the Rackspace connection): do you think that given this is queued it's possible that the token auth or something expires at some point? If so, how should I code this in order to keep the queue?

Thanks a lot for any help.

laloutre left a reply on Error While Sending STMT_PREPARE Packet On Queued Jobs

Hi @jpral, I'm having this issue with a queued event listener. From what I could understand, the problem occurs when Laravel tries to restore the serialized model from the event. For instance:

public function handle($event)
{
    $player = $event->player; // <- here
    [...]
}

Can you explain to me how your "DB::connection()->reconnect()" trick would work?

Thanks!

laloutre left a reply on Use L5.1 With 5.0 Packages

Well, I'm the package owner :).
I'm going to try 5.* and see.

laloutre left a reply on Use L5.1 With 5.0 Packages

@mstnorris what would be the correct way, in sharp's composer.json, to indicate that it accepts both 5.0.* and 5.1.*? I can't just put "5.*", right?

laloutre started a new conversation Use L5.1 With 5.0 Packages

I'm not this good with composer, and I'm trying to figure a way to declare in my laravel 5 specific package that it requires L5.0 or 5.1.

Right now the package composer.json looks like this:

"require": {
     "laravel/framework": "5.0.*"
}

Of course "composer update" fails on a new 5.1 project. The solution I found is to cheat on my project composer.json (where dvlpp/sharp is the package I was talking about):

"require": {
     "php": ">=5.5.9",
     "laravel/framework": "5.1.1 as 5.0.28",
     "dvlpp/sharp": "dev-master"
}

How can I update dvlpp/sharp's composer.json to accept both 5.0 and 5.1?

Thanks!

laloutre started a new conversation Response()->download Is Cropping One Char Of My File

This is a strange issue. I'm working on a .ics file generation, with eluceo/ical package. My code is simple:

$filepath = storage_path("app/tmp/" . uniqid() . ".ics");
\File::put($filepath, $contents);

return response()->download($filepath, "maillon.ics", [
    'Content-Type' => 'text/calendar',
    'charset' => 'utf-8'
]);

The app/tmp/XXX.ics file on disk seems OK. But the downloaded file has a blank line at the top, and the very last char is missing.

Do you see where I'm doing it wrong?

laloutre left a reply on Elixir: Version With 2 JS Files Seems Buggy

@vedmaque Yes, I noticed your last point too. But it's a bit twisted, since I have to fake an update to generate the file...

laloutre started a new conversation Elixir: Version With 2 JS Files Seems Buggy

I encounter a strange problem with this simple config:

mix.less('main.less')

    .scripts([
        "../vendor/jquery/dist/jquery.min.js",
        "main.js",
    ], 'public/js/project.js', 'resources/assets/js')

    .scripts([
        "../vendor/gmaps.js",
        "map.js"
    ], 'public/js/project-maps.js', 'resources/assets/js')

    .version(["public/css/main.css", "public/js/project-maps.js", "public/js/project.js"]);

Running gulp only generate one versioned js file (in this case, project-map.js). It seems that every "version" call on the same resource type (JS here) overrides the previous one.

I found a StackOverflow post on this, but I'm still stuck.

Has someone saw this problem before?

laloutre left a reply on Elixir On Laravel Forge

@sitesense OK, thanks. It's clear now, I must find a way to tell PHPStorm to add the "-a" flag to the commit instruction when hitting cmd-K.

And for the Elixir --production flag, you always use it it dev mode?

laloutre left a reply on Elixir On Laravel Forge

@sitesense Well, maybe I'm using git the wrong way, or maybe it's a PHPStorm thing, but when a new file is created from outside the IDE (this is the case with versioned JS or CSS files from Elixir), I have to add them to version control, otherwise they just stay out of it (and red in PHPStorm)...

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Set Current Page Programatically

Your solution isn't working with Laravel 5, right? I think it was working when Paginator was a facade, but this isn't the case anymore... Or am I missing something?

I'm looking for a simple way to force the page before a paginate() eloquent call.

laloutre left a reply on Elixir On Laravel Forge

I don't want to install node.js and gulp in my production server. But how do you manage your deployment then? I mean, before git push, you have to run gulp in your dev env with the --production flag, and then run a git add . because of new generated files (from the elixir versioning feature)?

And you have to remember to do that only if JS or LESS/SASS was updated (because otherwise, you lost the browser ressource caching for nothing).

Is someone has a better workflow (I think so...)?

@lollypopgr are you using queues for sending emails? (in case you missed my post above)

If yes, simply restart the queue worker.

laloutre left a reply on Mail.driver Change On Runtime, Is Being Ignored!

Oh, OK, this was obvious: I was using queues. I simply restarted the queue worker, and all is good now.

laloutre left a reply on Mail.driver Change On Runtime, Is Being Ignored!

I'm running the same issue, except I'm trying to change the mail driver in the global config (updating .env file at runtime).

With artisan tinker, I can trace the actual mail driver config, and it's the good one (mandrill). But from the website, I'm still using smtp... Very strange.

laloutre left a reply on Add Logic In Eloquent Relations

OK. So, does anyone think of a clever solution to achieve this particular scenario nicely, without having to update every $model->children call in the whole project?

laloutre left a reply on Add Logic In Eloquent Relations

Subprojects don't have events. In fact, the code above is exactly what I'm trying to build: return your events, or your master events if you have one. But my point is: this code won't work, the $this->master->children(); code is never executed, because no matter what, at this point, $this->master_id is always null. I tried for the record with a $this->master test in replacement, and this is the opposite: there's always a related model, which is a false value too.

I think this is because of Eloquent design, that we shouldn't code anything but a hasMany or belongTo (...) return in relationship methods, but I'm not sure.

laloutre left a reply on Add Logic In Eloquent Relations

@pmall Here's the real case: a Project can have many ProjectEvents. But a Project can be a sub-project: in this case, he defines a master, which is another Project, and can have some differences, but he has to share ProjectEvents with his master.

Since it's an update, I would like to keep this transparent in the code, returning either ProjectEvents of the current Project (regular case), or those of the master Project (sub-project case) when calling $project->events.

laloutre left a reply on Add Logic In Eloquent Relations

@pmall I'm not sure... You mean there's a risk of self-reference? Well, I can manage that, this is a typical tree-node relation. Or did I miss something in your answer?

laloutre started a new conversation Add Logic In Eloquent Relations

Is it possible to add logic in eloquent relationship methods? For a particular case, I'd like to do something like this :

class MyModel extends Model {

    (...)

    public function master()
    {
        return $this->belongsTo('MyModel');
    }

    public function children()
    {
        if($this->master_id)
        {
            return $this->master->children();
        }
        return $this->hasMany('Child');
    }
}

The idea is to get children directly from an instance of MyModel or from MyModel's master (which is another MyModel) if defined. It should be transparent.

I think it's not working as it is because of Eloquent's design, but can somebody thing to an alternative solution?

Thanks

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Validation: How To Handle Multidimensional Arrays

Oh, I see. Of course you're right. Sometimes I'm unable to see the obvious solution: I have to put the line id first. Thanks a lot.

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Validation: How To Handle Multidimensional Arrays

@pmall thanks for your answer. This is more or less what I have now, except that I have a meaningful id as array key. So my question is: how do I write the Laravel Request rules() method?

laloutre started a new conversation Laravel 5 Validation: How To Handle Multidimensional Arrays

Hi,

Here's my problem: I have a view with a list of guys, one per "line". For each guy, I ask the email address, and if the system already knows it (ajax request), all done; if not, I need address details.

So the data posted is like:

    [
        'person_id' => [
            40 => 58,
            41 => ''
        ],
        'email' => [
            40 => '',
            41 => 'test@example.com'
        ]
        'name' => [
            40 => '',
            41 => 'John Doe'
        ]
        ...
    ]

40 and 41 are line id. For line 40, I've entered a known email, so person_id is set. For line 41, I need to enter all fields, email is new.

In the controller and the validation request, I can access each field with the key email.40, or name.41. What rule can I write to validate email, for instance, but only when person_id isn't provided?

Hope I was clear...

laloutre started a new conversation Laravel 5 View Composers

What are your solutions to register View Composers in Laravel 5 (I have to confess that I used route.php in L4 for that...)?

Mine is to create a app/Http/viewcomposer.php file, and to load it in RouteServiceProvider like that:

public function map(Router $router)
{
    require app_path('Http/viewcomposers.php');
}

Is there a better way?

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Package Dev

Yes, I agree, but in one specific package (a CMS with an admin panel) I really need Controllers, Views and assets. And I like very much the way Laravel authorize it (I just have to remember how I've done that in CodeIgniter to start jumping around and crying).

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Package Dev

@TravisBlasingame Well, for now I managed to keep the L4 structure in my L5 package, meaning that Controllers don't have namespaces, and that I kept my L4 directories structure. Bu I think this isn't the right way...

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5 Package Dev

Of course, there's no much difference on the deploy thing, by my concern was about package structure, especially one with controllers and views — and if there's a way (I haven't found it) do make change without breaking L4 compatibility.

laloutre left a reply on Laravel 5.0 Homestead Blank Page

I think this could be related to https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/general-discussion/errors-not-showing-in-laravel-5-app: Whoops error displaying is buggy with Laravel 5. To be sure, try to delete storage/meta/compiled.php file and reload.

laloutre left a reply on Errors Not Showing In Laravel 5 App

Or delete storage/meta/compiled.php file.

laloutre started a new conversation Laravel 5 Package Dev

I'm starting 2 new projects right now, and I think that develop on Laravel 5 instead of 4.2 is a good choice — as the stable version is coming on November.

My concern is that I'm maintaining and using for these projects a package, which has controllers, views, ... and is impacted by Laravel 5. So, 2 questions came to my mind:

  • is there already somewhere a documentation regarding package dev changes for L5?
  • is there a way to develop a package on L5 but to authorize it on L4 apps?
