Liking Things in Laravel with Redis

6 episodes 21 mins

Course overview

Let’s skip the database and build the ability to like any model in Laravel, using Redis.

With a key-value store like Redis, tracking users who have liked comments (or anything) keeps everything ridiculously fast.

Once we're done, we'll set up a period command to sync views back to the database for easy ordering, and then create a trait to share functionality between other models.
