In this tutorial I’m going to walk you through a feature I’m implementing on a new project which involves async actions and Realtime Updates in Laravel. The feature is generating a screenshot of a website when the user adds a website to the app (more info on the app coming soon).
Well, its been coming and now it’s here. Laravel Echo (no docs link yet). As predicted it’s a pretty neat realtime abstraction currently over the Pusher API (as it’s the easiest to manage authentication), but I think intended generally for any realtime communication mechanism and hopefully it will be in the future.
As you can see here. Github are as of today offering unlimited private repos to all paid plans. This is a switch to a more friendly pricing model basing the price on the users involved rather than the repos in use. It’s a move I think will go down well with most users. But there are always edge cases (massive team working on 1 repo etc), let me know if this is good or bad for your team. Personally it works great for me, and I suspect with teams I work closely with.
