Great stuff! What extension are you using in VSCode to auto-import namespaces?
Started a new Conversation <x-slot> Usage In Blade Component Cookbook
Should be a trivial question. I noticed in the Blade Component Cookbook series, namely in the modal episode located here: https://laracasts.com/series/blade-component-cookbook/episodes/5, a component named
<x-slot> was used.
Is this a built-in Blade component? I don't see to recall Jeff building a
slot.blade.php anywhere. I also noted the usage of
$trigger in the actual component definition file. Where is this coming from?
Started a new Conversation Insight Into Why Homestead Over A More Modern Docker Approach
I am not sure what channel to place this question in, so I will leave it in General. Moderators, please feel free to move it to a more appropriate home.
My question is that Laravel is such a modern approach to web development. Why hasn't it adopted Docker as a trivial way to boot up a modern development environment? The other advantage is that with the correct Docker setup--you can quickly deploy to a production environment with minimal changes.
I suppose I am trying to understand why Homestead, which is better suited for development only, is the current go-to approach. Maybe it's the right way to go about it, and I would like to understand why.
I am spending time dockerizing my current development environment. I want to be able to put my Laravel projects onto a remote server so I can develop the same code base from multiple machines. I usually switch my development efforts daily between a desktop and laptop, so having it on a centralized server makes sense. This makes tools such as Homestead and Docker critical to my workflow.
Developing with Laravel has been a joy -- but I am a bit surprised about the lack of official Docker support and using older tools such as vagrant. I am curious to get more insight from someone with a lot more experience with this platform as to why that's the go-to choice. I understand I am free to deploy my own Docker solution, and I will. It can't hurt to hear opinions and learn in the process, though.
Started a new Conversation I Want To Give Access To Two Friends, Best Subscription?
I want to add two users to my account to be able to view all of the content on laracasts. What is my best bet to do so? Is it the $300 plan where I'll have 5 users and 2 of them will remain unused? And is the $300 plan yearly or monthly?
Thanks for clarifying! :)
