simber left a reply on Nova Resource From API Data

Thanks for the tip. Do you have an example that you could share? I currently just fetch the data from the API and save it to a table but it's a temporary solution as I needed a solution promptly.

Best regards, Simon

No, @ekpono , sadly I wasn't. It seems to me it is not possible.

Is there a way to create a Nova resource that doesn't fetch from DB but instead from a remote API?

I don't think there is a forum, but for JS I would recommend https://egghead.io

simber left a reply on Laracasts Refresh

The first time I saw the new design I didn't know what I was looking at. I googled something Laravel related and found an answer on a forum on a site I have never seen before. I found the design of the site very interesting so after reading my answer and closing the browser tab I decided to take another look at the web site. So I opened my browser history and - surprise surprise - it was Laracasts.com :D

Laracasts must be a site with the most redesigns in the shortest period of time. Now that alone is worth the $9! The content is a plus though :D

simber left a reply on Spark Js Variable - Is User Developer

Sorry, I was unclear in my question. What I meant was is it possible to get that value in VueJS Spark app. Like perhapse this.user.isDeveloper or something similar.

simber started a new conversation Spark Js Variable - Is User Developer

Is there a JS function that returns developer status for user? Like Spark::developer() in PHP. Or perhaps a global variable? (I couldn't find one)

simber left a reply on Integrating Socialite With Spark

If you want to handle oauth2 users the same way as normaly registered users (free trial end date calculation etc.) I recommend using Laravel\Spark\Interactions\Auth\Register class. The class expects Laravel\Spark\Contracts\Http\Requests\Auth\RegisterRequest interface as a parameter. That would be a BraintreeRegisterRequest or SparkRegisterRequest. So I did it like this in my create user function which receives Socialite's ProviderUser object as a parameter:

       /* if user doesn't exist */  
            if (!$user) {

                $attributes = ['email' => $providerUser->getEmail(),
                    'name' => $providerUser->getName(),
                    'photo_url' => $providerUser->getAvatar(),
                    'facebook_id' => $providerUser->getId(),
                    'password' => '',
                    'busy' => true,
                    'facebook_id' => $providerUser->getId()
                ];

        // create a BraintreeRegisterRequest (or SparkRegisterRequest) with user registration data
                $request = Spark\Http\Requests\Auth\BraintreeRegisterRequest::create('', 'GET', $attributes); 

        // User Register object to handle user creation
                $user = (new Register())->handle($request); // voi-la! that's your new user
            }

simber left a reply on Bye Virtualbox/Vagrant/Homestead, Hi Laragon

I use Laragon when all I need is apache, mysql, php memcached and/or redis. When I need other services or my application writes to disk then I'll use Homestead.

How about a Git repository instead of shared folder? Not a solution for MySql problem though :)

After seing this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=waTWeJeFp4A#t=1922 ... I'm in your camp. Using Elasticsearch instead of Solr in my project.

Wouldn't mind Jeffry's view on this though.
