Trending Things Over Time With Laravel

1 episode 7 mins

Course overview

Building a trending list of content with Laravel is actually pretty easy. In this snippet, we’ll take a look at how to create a list of trending articles over time, gradually decaying less viewed articles and pushing popular articles to the top.

You’ll also be able to adjust the decay levels, and update the frequency of decay to tweak how sensitive your trending content is and how ‘realtime’ it appears.
