Multiple Drag And Drop File Uploading and Processing with Inertia

Build a multiple file chunked uploader in Inertia with the ability to pause, resume and cancel uploads. We’ll also be able to edit metadata (like the title and description) for each upload — even while they’re uploading and processing. In the second half of the course, we’ll learn how to queue and process uploaded files on the backend (like encoding videos), and in realtime, report back to the client with progress updates using WebSockets. It’s everything you need to know to upload and process large files in Inertia.

Drag and Drop Sorting With Livewire

Easily add drag and drop sorting functionality to your Livewire components with an Alpine directive, powered by Sortable.js. We’ll start with a list of ordered items, activate drag and drop sorting, and then feed the new order back to Livewire to instantly update the database. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to reuse this functionality in any of your Livewire components.

Build a Starter Kit With Inertia and Fortify

Let’s build our own Laravel starter kit with Inertia and include all the features you’d expect. We’ll implement authentication, email verification, profile photo uploads, two factor authentication, and more. Fortify is a frontend agnostic authentication package for Laravel, meaning most of the work is done for us — we just need to build the frontend and make requests to the endpoints that Fortify registers. Once you’re done, you’ll have a clean slate for building your next project, with the ability to control everything in your own starter kit.

Build a Webcam and Screen Sharing Site With Inertia

Let’s build an app to capture and record your webcam (or screen) directly from the browser, store it, and provide a link that can be shared to anyone for them to watch. Completely from scratch, we’ll hook into the browser APIs for recording, send the video to our backend for encoding, generate still images with FFmpeg, and produce a sharable link that can be sent to anyone for them to view.
