This snippet walks you through setting up a separate log channel in Laravel, with its own file. We'll also tap into a custom log formatter to choose the output structure. Great for separating different kinds of logs.

Build a Booking System With Laravel

Building an availability calendar and booking system is a notoriously difficult problem to solve. That’s exactly what we’re going to cover in this course. Step by step, we’ll build an appointment slot generator that calculates availability based on employee schedules, employee’s booked time off, the length of service chosen, existing appointments, and cancelled appointments. For maximum flexibility, we’ll also allow multi-employee availability checks, so we’ll be able to see every employee who can perform a service (and their available slots). To finish up, we’ll build a simple UI with Alpine.js, with a beautiful booking calendar that shows detailed availability across multiple dates, the ability to choose a time slot — and finally the ability to book an appointment. Phew. We’ve got a lot to learn — let’s build a booking system with Laravel!

Logging Unique Views in Laravel with Redis

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

Eloquent Relationships By Example

Eloquent is Laravel's ORM (Object Relational Mapper). In simple terms, it's how your models work with the database. The good news? There's a bunch of powerful relationship types available. Our task is to learn when and where to use each one. In this course, we'll cover each basic relationship type, how to access related models, and then insert, sync, update and delete related data. Oh, and we'll build a practical example for each relationship type, to really make it stick.
