Replied to AmCharts4 With Laravel 5 And Webpack Install

@sirik Have a look at

If you scroll to the bottom of the page its explained there.

Basically, if you're not needing those files you can add the follow to your webpack.mix.js file:

    externals: function (context, request, callback) {
        if (/xlsx|canvg|pdfmake/.test(request)) {
            return callback(null, "commonjs " + request);

Replied to Trying To Get Property Of Non-object

Should it be possible for a quotation to not have a user?

Replied to Creating Models With Controllers, Factories And Migrations

It's a perfectly fine way to do it. Is there anything you don't like about this approach?

Replied to Error 302

A 302 isn't an error it's a redirect.

400 and 500 codes are errors:

Replied to Updating Session After Login With Extra Values.

For this you could hook in to the LoginEvent.


php artisan make:listener AddToSessionAfterLogin

Then n your App\Providers\EventServiceProvider add the following to the $listen array:

\Illuminate\Auth\Events\Login::class => [

Obviously, feel free to import these classes if you want.

Then in your AddToSessionAfterLogin class, which you've just created, you can add the necessary logic to the handle() method i.e.:

public function handle(Login $event)
    session(['hello' => 'world']);

FYI, you can access the authenticated user with $event->user.
