  • image-optimizer

    Easily optimize images using PHP (by spatie)

    Project mention: Looking for recommendations for a PHP image upload library / project for secure image uploads. | | 2021-09-06

    Though tbh it sounds like you probably already have a web app built and want to plug image uploads into it, in which case just build a method to handle your route with some MIME type validation + a Spatie optimizer implementation for optimising and resizing (which I presume is what you mean by "manipulation")

    Easily run code asynchronously (by spatie)

    Project mention: I Avoid Async/Await | | 2022-04-16

Generally speaking, async/await allows you to write code that looks and feels serial. Perhaps try using one of the async libraries for PHP to wrap your mind around the concept of async/await (like

    Project mention: Comparing PHP Collections | | 2022-03-22

    Project mention: Slow external API calls made in a foreach - How to optimize? | | 2022-03-01

    The only way you could improve this is by using something like Spatie Fork to run the API requests in parallel but doing that is honestly going to be a headache.

  • laravel-pjax

    A pjax middleware for Laravel

    Project mention: Laravel Livewire: Navigation like pjax/turbolinks | | 2021-09-27

    With pjax: and it was simple to just add a data attribute to an anchor tag and you're good to go. Selecting a menu item would usually be a single request (the view would be injected into the blade @yield('content') section) and a few kilobytes of info (keeping browser URL updated as well), making any web app feel super snappy.

  • laravel-varnish

    Making Varnish and Laravel play nice together

    Project mention: Help with Integrating Laravel with Varnish | | 2022-06-20

    I am an ops person so my knowledge of laravel is close to 0. I have to integrate Varnish 6 with laravel. I followed this template for the laravel varnish config.
