tspesh left a reply on Unique Field Applying To Soft-deleted Models As Well?

Ah, yeah that's a sensible solution. Thanks!

tspesh started a new conversation Unique Field Applying To Soft-deleted Models As Well?

I built a system in which the model in question must have a unique name. The model also has soft-deletes enabled. Is it possible for that unique name field to only apply to entries that aren't soft deleted?

tspesh left a reply on Best Way To Dynamically Edit A Model

@REALRANDYALLEN - Even more simple! Duh...

Given that I am in fact using $fillable, is this considered bad practice or unorthodox in any way?

tspesh started a new conversation Best Way To Dynamically Edit A Model

Let's say you have a pretty large model and in various places you might update different parts of that model...

I feel like your options are to create a controller for each "part" of the model you are editing (in my example below we may be updating contact information). Or you can loop through each request and set the model's attributes dynamically, IE something like this:

foreach($request->all() as $key => $request){
    $model->{$key} = $request;
}

$model->save();

I am using the $fillable array so I think that would be safe...but it feels funky. So for the time being I'm doing something this:

    /**
     * Update the specified resource in storage.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Http\Request  $request
     * @param  \App\Order  $quote
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
     */
    public function update(Request $request, Order $quote)
    {
        if($request->has('update_billing')){
            $quote->billing_address_1   = $request->billing_address_1;
            $quote->billing_address_2   = $request->billing_address_2;
            $quote->billing_city        = $request->billing_city;
            $quote->billing_country     = $request->billing_country;
            $quote->billing_state       = $request->billing_state;
            $quote->billing_phone       = $request->billing_phone;
        }

        if($request->has('update_contact')){
            $quote->contact_address_1   = $request->contact_address_1;
            $quote->contact_address_2   = $request->contact_address_2;
            $quote->contact_city        = $request->contact_city;
            $quote->contact_country     = $request->contact_country;
            $quote->contact_state       = $request->contact_state;
            $quote->contact_phone       = $request->contact_phone;
        }

        $quote->save();
    }

Don't code on a tired brain :-|

Thank you. Feel a little dumb now :)

tspesh started a new conversation Socialite Not Working!

I know everyone is going to want to see my code, but this is bascially a brand new fresh install. The only thing I've done is make:auth.

I then followed the directions here: https://github.com/laravel/socialite

When I try to use twitter I get the following:

Looking for any advice...
