    Project mention: New in Laravel 8.80 - Route::controller() | | 2022-01-20

    A great thing has been added in Laravel 8.80, which is the use of Route::controller() with Groups to shorten Route, so I want to share it with you so that you may use it in your next projects.

  • GitHub repo Guzzle

    Guzzle, an extensible PHP HTTP client

    Project mention: Composer conflict, how can we use it? | | 2021-11-19

    We found the related issue on the Guzzle GitHub repository and we noticed a fix had been released with version 6.3 of this library. Hurray, we can bump Guzzle version to 6.3 and overcome the problem! But looking at BehatPageObjectExtension’s composer.json we’ve soon realized that Guzzle isn’t a direct dependency managed by us. “It’s not a big deal” I thought as Guzzle was required by Goutte and we require Goutte through its Mink driver,so I expected to find some tagged version of Goutte and the Mink Driver with this requirements bump. Sadly I found it wasn’t the case as Guzzle is required in Goutte with ^6.0 (so, basically every version between 6 and 7) and this includes the versions with the warning described above. Therefore in our case the warning was displayed as a “side effect” of deps=low that requires indirectly Guzzle 6.0 as is the lowest dependency accepted.
