Trending Things Over Time With Laravel
7 mins1 month ago

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.

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.

Translations with Laravel and Inertia

Localisation is a breeze in Laravel applications, but what happens when you need to bring this to the client-side? Turns out in Inertia, it's pretty simple. In this course, we'll build a language switcher, share translations with the client, and build a simple translation helper for Vue to use directly in templates. We'll also cover caching translations to keep things running smoothly. The best part? With the magic of reactivity, we'll be able to switch languages without any page refresh, and see everything instantly translated.
