Replied to Laravel Nova! Stay Away

I have built several projects through nova already. The only thing I would really criticize is the tedious work you have to do when implementing a well-planned database structure as you have to define everything in three places: The migration, the model and the nova resource. But also I don't see a way around that. Apart from that, there are some minor limitations here and there, but I always found a clean solution to workaround ongoing issues. Overall, I am very happy with nova and the work it takes away when setting up useful backends!

Started a new Conversation Record A Video-Stream On The Server In Realtime


We are building a laravel-application where a user has to record a 15+ minutes video through his webcam which will later be reviewed by callcenter agents. Therefore, the video has to be available on the server's storage. As a video of this length will take a long time to upload we are trying to implement a streaming solution where the server will store the video-stream in realtime while the user has his camera running.

Does anybody have experience with media-handling of this type and could give me some ideas on how to implement an incremental video-built? I would be very thankful for any resources or starting points that come to your mind that might help as my media-knowledge is very limited and google search was not really helpful neither.

Appreciate your support!

Started a new Conversation Change "Server Error" Tostated-Message In Nova

Hey there,

does anyone know how to control the error-reporting level of the toasted messages in laravel nova? When for example a database column is not available when saving a model, the toasted message will show the complete error in my local development environment, but in production it only says "Server Error". I want to disable the hidden errors to have the ability to display certain errors to the user through Exceptions.

Thanks for helping!
