I'm proud to announce that Media Library Pro is now available. Media Library Pro is an add-on package for our free Media Library base package. It contains a set of Blade, Vue and React components that make it easy to upload files to media library and to manage files inside of a media library collection.
In this blog post, I'd like to introduce Media Library Pro to you.
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.
Here's the recording of a casual conversation between Christoph Rumpel and me we had last week.
At Spatie, we want to stimulate contributing to our open source stuff. That's why we said that we'd give away some of our paid products for free to authors of the best PRs we got in October. In a way, it's our own small version of Hacktoberfest.
In this blog post, I'd like to announce the winners.
When handling uploads, a traditional input type of file has some downsides. In this streaming session I did yesterday, I explain those problems and share how they can be fixed using the upcoming Media Library Pro.
In preparation for creating the Front Line PHP video course I needed to make myself familiar with the features that PHP 8 brings to the table. In this stream you can see me trying out some of these features for the first time.
After sending a new edition of my newsletter, I usually tweet out a webview URL together with a URL where people can subscribe to the newsletter. A webview is a hard to guess URL that people who didn't subscribe can visit to read the content of the newsletter.
I'm proud to announce the release of our newest package Laravel Backup Server.This paid package can backup several servers at once. When a backup contains files also present in a previous backup, deduplication using hard links will be performed. Even though you will see full backups in theâ¦
We've already covered a lot of ground in this series. Let's finish by highlighting some miscellaneous interesting tidbits.
Our company has created a lot of open-source packages. At the moment of writing, we have over 200 packages, which have been downloaded nearly 100 million times. Because we think the package users might be interested in our paid offerings as well, we've put a small ad in the readme of each repo. In this blogpost I'll explain how we manage these ads using Laravel Nova and S3.
We'd like to stay in touch with the people interested in our products by sending them emails when we got some news on an upcoming product, or when we are running a promo for existing products. To handle subscriptions and send out emails, we use our home-grown Laravel package Mailcoach. Let's take a look at how we use Mailcoach ourselves.
On our website, we have a video section. All our videos uploaded to and handled via Vimeo where we have a Pro subscription. We chose Vimeo because it has an excellent widget to display videos, it converts our videos very fast, and it has a nice API to work with. Let's take a look at how Vimeo is integrated in our site.
Some of our products, like Mailcoach and Media Library Pro, are PHP packages for which people can buy a time-limited license. Of course, we want customers to be able to install our paid packages using Composer. Our paid packages are not registered on Packagist, because Packagist is meant to be used for free packages, and there's no way to handle licenses. Let's take a look at how we can solve this using Satis.
