Link –

Recently status pages were added to Oh Dear!. My colleague Sebastian took care of the live updates with a few lines of JavasScript.

In a new video on his blog Livewire creator Caleb Porzio, shows how can create the same behaviour with Livewire (and without having to write JavaScript). Impressive stuff!

This sort of thing is right up my alley, but I couldn't help but think how easy it would be in Livewire. Here's is the same functionality implemented with Livewire, in three or four little code additions. No JS!


Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
