marknt15 started a new conversation An Error Occurred While Processing Your Card. Try Again In A Little Bit

Hi Guys,

Does Laracasts still accept Debit cards as payment? The label in the left sidebar in the settings page is "Credit Card". Wayback I used the same Debit card and it was successful. No errors. But now I can't use it.

The error is: "An error occurred while processing your card. Try again in a little bit"

Thanks.

Kind Regards,

marknt15 left a reply on Which CSS Framework Is Best For Vue Js App (Enterprise Level)

If it is your own app and you will only code it you can use whatever CSS framework you like or even a custom framework. But I think if your app will be handled by hired developers then I think most of the time bootstrap is the way to go because lots of developers know it thus the turn over and learning curve is low.

That's my opinion only. I have yet to finalize which CSS framework is best for my app :)

marknt15 left a reply on Which CSS Framework Is Laracasts Using?

@NASH - Thanks mate. I will start a new project and was wondering if which CSS framework I will use. Bootstrap is kinda bloated.

marknt15 started a new conversation Which CSS Framework Is Laracasts Using?

Hi guys. Is Laracasts using CSS frameworks like bootstrap, tailwind or foundation? Or is it using a custom CSS framework with flexbox? Thanks

@ejdelmonico Taylor already replied to me in Twitter and he said Valet.

@martinbean thanks for your reply and I understand your point. I will try and compare different development environments to see what's good for me. I'm eyeing Laradock now since at work we use docker and Symfony 2.

But I still wanted to know Taylor's development environment setup out of curiosities sake :D

@martinbean because I wanted to know the efficient development environment setup and adopt it.

@ejdelmonico Why can you pretty much guarantee he doesn't use MAMP? Because he uses Valet?

Hi Guys just curious about what development environment setup Taylor uses? I am currently using MAMP with vhost in my MBP. Any tips which is better and faster? Thanks! :)

marknt15 left a reply on PHP Weekly Date Range With Specific Start And End Day

Posting the correct and final answer for future reference:

$weeks          = array();
$dayOfWeek      = date('w');
$thursday       = 4;
$diff           = $thursday - $dayOfWeek;
$minus_weeks    = 12; // past 3 months

// create week range that starts with Thursday and ends with Wednesday for the past 3 months
for ($i = 0; $i <= $minus_weeks; $i++) {

    $k = $i - 1;

    $from_formula   = strtotime("-$i week $diff day");
    $to_formula     = strtotime("-$k week " . ($diff - 1) . " day");
    $ymd_week_range = date('Y-m-d', $from_formula) . ',' . date('Y-m-d', $to_formula);

    $day_from   = date('j', $from_formula);
    $day_to     = date('j', $to_formula);

    $month_from = date('M', $from_formula);
    $month_to   = date('M', $to_formula);

    $year_from  = date('Y', $from_formula);
    $year_to    = date('Y', $to_formula);

    $weeks[$ymd_week_range] = "$month_from $day_from - $month_to $day_to";
}

Thanks for the tip. I think it is working correctly now by doing this revision:

for ($i = 0; $i <= 4; $i++) {
    $k = $i - 1;

    $from_text = strtotime("this week thursday -$i week");
    $to_text = strtotime("-$k week -1 day");

    $ymd_week_range = date('Y-m-d', $from_text) . ',' . date('Y-m-d', $to_text);

    $day_from = date('j', $from_text);
    $day_to = date('j', $to_text);

    $month_from = date('M', $from_text);
    $month_to = date('M', $to_text);

    $year_from = date('Y', $from_text);
    $year_to = date('Y', $to_text);

    $weeks[$ymd_week_range] = "$month_from $day_from - $month_to $day_to, $year_to";
}

I changed my laptop date and set it to tomorrow (Friday) and the results are now correct using the code above:

Array
(
    [2017-03-16,2017-03-23] => Mar 16 - Mar 23, 2017
    [2017-03-09,2017-03-16] => Mar 9 - Mar 16, 2017
    [2017-03-02,2017-03-09] => Mar 2 - Mar 9, 2017
    [2017-02-23,2017-03-02] => Feb 23 - Mar 2, 2017
    [2017-02-16,2017-02-23] => Feb 16 - Feb 23, 2017
)

marknt15 started a new conversation PHP Weekly Date Range With Specific Start And End Day

Hi I already have a date range result but how can I make the date range start at every Thursday and ends at Wednesday. Thanks for your help :smiley:

$week_range = '';
for ($i = 0; $i <= 4; $i++) {
    $k = $i - 1;

    $ymd_week_range = date('Y-m-d', strtotime("-$i week")) . ',' . date('Y-m-d', strtotime("-$k week -1 day"));

    $day_from = date('j', strtotime("-$i week"));
    $day_to = date('j', strtotime("-$k week -1 day"));
    $month_to = date('M', strtotime("-$i week"));
    $month_from = date('M', strtotime("-$k week -1 day"));
    $year_to = date('Y', strtotime("-$i week"));
    $year_from = date('Y', strtotime("-$k week -1 day"));

    $weeks[$ymd_week_range] = "$month_from $day_from-$day_to, $year_to";   
}
Array
    (
        [2017-03-16,2017-03-22] => Mar 16-22, 2017
        [2017-03-09,2017-03-15] => Mar 9-15, 2017
        [2017-03-02,2017-03-08] => Mar 2-8, 2017
        [2017-02-23,2017-03-01] => Mar 23-1, 2017
        [2017-02-16,2017-02-22] => Feb 16-22, 2017
    )

So today is thursday so it is correct. But if today is friday then the result is wrong. If today is friday then I want the correct result above. The wrong result is:

Array
        (
            [2017-03-17,2017-03-23] => Mar 17-23, 2017
            [2017-03-10,2017-03-16] => Mar 10-16, 2017
            [2017-03-03,2017-03-09] => Mar 3-9, 2017
            [2017-02-24,2017-03-02] => Mar 24-2, 2017
            [2017-02-17,2017-02-23] => Feb 17-23, 2017
        )

@sweijdt I have noticed my AJAX success like printing an HTML onchange of a dropdown doesn't show in the mobile view rendered. I was thinking if I need to test something then it should be the actual device or browser? What do you think?

Hi. I've installed and is using Blisk Browser (https://blisk.io/) and also testing my site in Firefox and Chrome. Is Blisk reliable? Do you do the same or blisk is a waste of time? Thanks!

marknt15 started a new conversation Laravel Backend Admin - Separate Laravel Install Or Use Only One Laravel Install?

Hi Guys, I need structure tips before I create my personal website.

1.) Should I use a separate Laravel install for my subdomain backend to be safer or should I only use one Laravel install and do the routes below? 2.) Which is the best practice and easier to maintain? 3.) Should I use subdomain for my Backend Admin or just use sub-folder (www.domain.com/admin)

Controllers:

app\Http\Controllers\Admin\AdminController.php (Backend)
app\Http\Controllers\Admin\HomeController.php (Frontend)

Routes File:

Route::group(array('domain' => 'domain.com'), function() {
    Route::get('/', '[email protected]');
});
Route::group(array('domain' => 'admin.domain.com'), function() {
   Route::get('/', 'Admin\[email protected]');
});

VHOST:

127.0.0.1   domain.com
127.0.0.1   admin.domain.com
