Replied to How Does Cmgmyr/messenger Do What It Does??
Ah! Thanks for the reply Tippin. That makes sense now. Since the blade template is rendered before the JS calls, the messages and users will be logged by JS. I was thinking it was added somehow before the blade template, and couldn't for the life of me figure out how that would work!
Started a new Conversation How Does Cmgmyr/messenger Do What It Does??
I am currently working on a project and using cmgmyr/messenger. It's a terrific service, but using it has made me realize how much functionality exists within Laravel/Eloquent that I am not taking advantage of. I have a specific question regarding retrieving Threads, as per the example code provided here:
The show() method retrieves a Thread via "$thread = Thread::findOrFail($id)"
The index() method retrieves Threads via "$threads = Thread::forUser(Auth::id())->latest('updated_at')->get()"
My question relates to the data that is being pulled by these methods. If I were to Log the $thread object after either of these function calls, I only see the expected columns from the thread table. However, once these results are passed to, and rendered by, a blade template, there is additional data included in the $thread object.
In the case of the index() template, when I call console.log on the $thread object, I see that it also includes the User objects associated with each Thread. In the case of the show() template, I see that it also includes the Message objects associated with the Thread.
So my question is, what is the mechanism at work here, and how can I leverage it in my other models?
