Live-coding mini-Reddit in Laravel 8

January 2021 / 3 h 11 min / Laravel 8

Course released: January 2021
Course length: 3 h 11 min
Laravel version: 8

For quite a long time, I've been planning a live-coding style course, and here it is.
So I took a real job project from Upwork:

And, after 3 hours of live-coding, the result is this demo project:

Throughout this 3-hour course, I'm working on:

  • Create a new Laravel project, Auth scaffolding with Bootstrap-based Laravel UI (planning to take Tailwind/Breeze for the next course)
  • Full CRUDs managing communities and posts, including file upload and select2 library
  • Showing all/popular/newest community posts
  • Adding comments and votes
  • Moderating and managing data by community owner or superadmin
  • Transforming one element (post voting) into Laravel Livewire
  • Examples of automated PHPUnit tests to avoid manually "clicking around" every time

Also, I often intentionally leave the mistakes I'm making along the way, so you will see some bugs and how I fix them, which is also valuable, in my opinion. The repository of this project will be available, the link is in the description of the lessons. So, are you with me on this journey?
