  • Building a dropdown menu using Alpine.js | 2021-10-13
    AlpineJS is a small JavaScript framework for composing behavior directly in HTML markup. In this tutorial I’ll show you how the framework can be used to build a dropdown menu component. If you’ve never worked with Alpine before this will serve as a simple introduction to the framework.

    I have personally found a combination of htmx and Alpine.js to be very effective for my projects. Here's a demo project for using Spring Boot, Thymeleaf and htmx together. Here's a video on using Spring Boot w/htmx. That said, there is currently no job market for this kind of thing, although (crossed-fingers) that will change over the next few years.
  • Help with Modal | 2021-10-01
    I would use AlpineJS to display the modal, and then within the modal I'd build the form as a Livewire component.

    If you really just want some JS in your HTML, and not build a complete SPA, take a look at petite vue or alpine js.
  • MarkdownX Editor 🎉 | 2021-08-30
    MarkdownX is like a element with super powers ✨. It is a text editor with a beautiful interface that makes it easy for users to write in Markdown. The component has a pretty sweet dropdown that allows you to easily upload images, add lists, embed videos, and so much more!

    A month ago we posted a tweet about a new editor we were building and it got a pretty huge response with nearly 500 likes and 50 retweets 🤯


    That set things in motion and we started working on a version that could be used with any Tallstack application. 🙌.

    I'll show you the steps below 👇 on how to install this in a new Tallstack app.

    1. 🔧 Create a new Laravel App

    The first step is creating a new Laravel application. If you already have an existing Tallstack application, you can skip ahead to step 3.

    laravel new mdx
    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    In this example, I'll install a new laravel app in a folder named mdx.

    Then, go into that directory cd mdx, and we can move to the next step.

    2. 🔩 Installing the Tallstack Pre-set

    The Tallstack preset allows us to add TailwindCSS, Alpine, and Livewire in our new application with a few simple commands. You can find that preset here:

    Let's run those commands in our new application:

    composer require livewire/livewire laravel-frontend-presets/tall
    php artisan ui tall
    npm install
    npm run dev
    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    After we have run those commands, we should be able to visit our new site:


    And we should have a new Tallstack application in front of us.

    note: if you get an application key error, you may also need to run php artisan key:generate.

    Next up, we'll be moving the component files to our new application.

    3. 🧩 Adding the MarkdownX Editor

    Adding this component to your project is literally as easy as 1, 2, 3. Because that's how many files the MarkdownX editor includes. Here are those files:

    1. Controller - app/Http/Livewire/MarkdownX.php
    2. View - resources/views/livewire/markdown-x.blade.php
    3. Config - config/markdownx.php

    After downloading a copy of the latest MarkdownX editor, you will need to move those files 👆 to their appropriate location in your Laravel application.

    Note: make sure to run php artisan storage:link, if you want to test out image uploading. The MarkdownX storage uses the local public disk by default, but you can change this in the config 😉.

    After you have done this, we are now ready to test it out in our new application.

    🧪 Test out the Editor

    To test the editor in our new app we are going to modify the welcome page located at resources/views/welcome.blade.php, to look like this:

    Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

    If we visit our application homepage we'll see the editor in front of us 🤘.


    We can now drag-and-drop images, add videos, lists, and a bunch of other cool things that make writing more fun and easier than ever before.

    Be sure to check out the official new landing page for MarkdownX here and the documentation here. I hope you find this component useful in your next project, and I hope you continue to build awesome stuff 🤘. See you soon!

    If you're doing a multipage app, then you can integrate some Vue components in your views rendered with PHP, although transfering data from the view to Vue without an API is not what Vue was made for. Check out the new petite-vue or AlpineJS that might be a better choice for this use case.
