Crop and Upload Profile Photos with Livewire

Using Livewire, Alpine and Cropper.js (or any cropping library), we’ll create an embeddable form field for users (or any other model) to upload profile photos. The form element will launch a modal, where users can crop and adjust their profile photo, before being able to preview and save the cropped image — or clear everything out and start again. You’ll learn: - How to launch modals in Livewire - How to use Cropper.js with Alpine - How to resize images on the backend with the spatie/image package - How to pass data between Livewire components

If you need to log unique views in Laravel, you might reach for a database table to track IP addresses or another unique piece of data. Let's take a look at speeding things up both in performance and complexity by using Redis and the HyperLogLog probabilistic data structure. 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.

Custom Laravel Query Builders

Using Eloquent query scopes in your project? Consider swapping them out for custom query builders. Custom query builders are model-specific, class-based builders that provide better organisation, IDE autocompletion, and more. We'll start this course by defining some standard scopes, refactor them, and discuss the benefits of custom builders. This course is for you if: - You're using query scopes, but they're bloating your models - You're working in a team and need more organisation in your project - You haven't used query scopes and want a primer, plus an alternative
