Tag: Laravel (page 1 of 2)
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.
I spent a lot of time recently looking into NodeJs and how my PHP experience translates. From performance considerations to traditional PHP esq Interfaces and how to tackle them. Now I’m at the point of how to structure a full-blown application and how traditional design patterns like Service Location, Inversion Of Control, and Factories fit in with the module driven architecture of NodeJs.
