Replied to Accessibility On Laracasts

A git repo of transcripts would be a familiar means of doing this. Technically the content is property of Laracasts and copyright needs to be respected.

Replied to Accessibility On Laracasts

Certainly seems like a volunteer worthy project to help the community at large. Not only would it benefit the hearing impaired but the large ESL community of programmers.

Maybe one time use coupons towards membership for x amount of hours of work?

The Larateer Army???

Started a new conversation JSON Column Types With Sqlite

Has anyone successfully loaded the Sqlite extension JSON1 when using Sqlite as their configured database? I'm interested now that Laravel 5.4 supports querying JSON column types. It makes sense for MySQL 5.7 and Postgres, but I was curious to other possibilities.

Started a new conversation When Is SQLITE Too Small?

Using SQLITE with Laravel is such a great, self contained solution for a micro-site. I wanted to get a general opinion, though, regarding switching to MYSQL. If I'm doing a project where all rows of all tables totaled no more than 200, it seems fine. Using that as a metric, when would it be better to use MYSQL? 500+? 1500+? PHP memory limit is a factor?

Replied to Extending @stack ?

Just came across something to answer my own question..

$__env->yieldPushContent('css') gets me access to everything pushed to 'css' so from there I can do additional processing.

Started a new conversation Extending @stack ?

I was wondering if there was a way to process the result of an @stack? I have a template with @stack('css') and thought it'd be handy to minimize the result with this approach.

Started a new conversation Topics And Versions

This might seem like overkill but I was wondering if topics listed (as well as discussions) could not only show the title but the most recent version of Laravel when the item was created. Even if it was faint font color of "5.1" or something. While doing some research for roles/permissions I noticed that suggestions during the reign of 5.1 will rely on very different approaches than 5.3. To quickly know the version referenced in the title would be helpful.

Started a new conversation Preview Strategy

I would love to see a strategy to efficiently handle previewing a publishing site. To see a post or navigation item set to "draft" or with a publish date in future.
