Replied to Setup Testing/production On Small VPS

I think I figured out a system that works by adding some additional directories to my git repo but I'm still interested in hearing how people like to do deployment to an environment with low enough resources to not be able to run composer or npm reliably.

Started a new Conversation Setup Testing/production On Small VPS

I wanted to get a dev/testing environment setup on a SkySilk vps that I have. Ran into memory issues which it looks like there is no way around because it wont allow swap files. So I'm trying to just setup the dev on my laptop and use git to move everything onto the server saving me from having to use npm and composer on the vps. I keep running into issues with things like the laravel package ui. I deleted everything from the .gitignore and forced ui to be added to the repo but I'm still having issues.

What is the best way to setup a production/testing environment when you only have 512MB of ram? I don't need all the answers but any ideas will be very helpful for direction.

Replied to Advantages Of Cashier Over Simple Stripe SDK?

Also I'm sorry if I posted this in the wrong channel. I'm still super new to Laracasts.

Started a new Conversation Advantages Of Cashier Over Simple Stripe SDK?

We are building 2.0 version of our website in Laravel and I cant help but notice Cashier. Our current website is built using Wordpress and a messy plugin using the Stripe php wrapper very heavily. I already have most of the billing functionality coded up in the Wordpress plugin including a reliance on subscription schedules in a few places which I'm seeing is not yet supported in Cashier. However I need to do some refactoring of the code and clean a lot of things up while moving it from a Wordpress plugin into Laravel. I'm trying to decide if I should use Cashier or not and would love to hear what people have found the advantages and disadvantages of using it over just the php wrapper that Stripe provides.
