Why Laravel Is The Best PHP Framework In 2018

By: | Tags: , , , | August 23, 2018

When we want to build any website in PHP at that time choosing for right development framework to develop web application is very important to make our application more robust for better performance.

Today I am here going to share some reasons why Laravel is best for develop website in PHP. Then you will realize from yourself to why laravel is best.

I can give you surety about after reading this article you can take one good decision why you need to use laravel as PHP framework for your new website which you are thinking to develop.

Reasons Why Laravel Is the Best PHP Framework:

1. Authorization Technique: – Laravel makes implementation of authentication techniques very simple. Because it provided almost all things configured extraordinarily. The framework provides an easy way to organize authorization logic and control access to all resources. So we can be sure that access to secured resources won’t be granted to unauthorized users.

2. Completely customizable: – Another great characteristic of laravel is that it allows extensive customization. This technology has everything needed to turn any business idea into a successful and powerful tool. “Although Laravel comes with pre-designed packages, they all can be customized to suit your specific business needs. Since developers can control the way the things are structured, you can always expect great results with Laravel framework.

3. Object-Oriented Libraries: – One of the main reason which makes laravel the best PHP framework is it has Object Oriented libraries and many other pre installed ones, which are not found in any other popular PHP frameworks. Here I can give you example of one of the pre installed library is the Authentication library. It is really easy to implement, it has many advanced features, such as checking active users, Bcrypt hashing, password reset, CSRF (Cross-site Request Forgery) protection, and encryption.

4. Artisan: – This is the best tool which is given by laravel. A developer has to usually interact with the Laravel framework using a command line that creates and handles the Laravel project”
“environment. Laravel provides a built-in tool for command-line called Artisan. This tool allows us to perform the majority of those repetitive and tedious programming tasks that most of the developers avoid performing manually.

5. Clean documentation and Model View Controller (MVC) support: – The best thing about laravel is it has best documentation which explain you each thing very easily. Since it is compatible with MVC architecture, developers get a variety of built-in functions allowing to create applications of all sizes and complexity.

6. MVC Support:- Another reason which makes Laravel the best PHP Development framework is it supports MVC Architecture like Symfony, ensuring clarity between logic and presentation. MVC helps in improving the performance, allows better documentation, and has multiple built-in functionalities. Here’s how the MVC works for Laravel.

7. Expandable requirements for future:- Many entrepreneurs who have long-term vision choose Laravel as it makes expansion easy and smooth. Laravel is a flexible framework, and it adapts to changes very well. No need to worry about changes on the market or a shift in the consumer’s demands. A Laravel professional will be able to adjust an application to your current situation.

I hope after reading all this reason now you get idea why Laravel is best suits for now days to create great web application in PHP.

It proves itself laravel booming now days because as of now, Laravel has 35,231 stars on GitHub.

If you have a new things development project in your mind and look for a cost-effective solution, our Laravel Developers are ready to help. Contact us if you need to upgrade, support and maintain your web application, or develop a new one.

Redux

Getting Started With Redux

By: | Tags: , , , | August 22, 2018

Introduction:

Currently, there are many scripting languages which provide a component-based approach to develop a web application, like Angular, React etc. To develop such an application developer needs to create components based on the design of the application, and component can communicate with each other via properties and events. Parent component can pass data through properties and a child component can pass data to the parent via events.

With this conventional approach, there are few disadvantages like,

  • We need to make extra code to manage to communicate between components which are not in a parent-child relationship
  • There can be duplicate data on the client side which is used by one or more component and if data updated by one component and other component(s) may not aware of that change.

Redux Building Blocks:

Redux provides the solution for the above issues. Redux is a javascript framework which allows a developer to manage application state. Redux has 3 building blocks,

  • Store
  • Actions
  • Reducer

Store

A store is a JSON object where all data is stored and it is just a JavaScript object which contains all property for data and all components use this data object only. So there will be no duplicate data and if one component updates a part of a data all other components, which are interested to get notified, get notified and can perform certain actions. Below is the example how to store object,

{

                items:[],

                users:[],

                token:’Basic a546jksghduil$@aedfioj==’

   }                                      

Actions

Actions are the events like a click of a button, generally triggered by user interaction. Below are some examples of actions, which we can use in reducers using “switch case” statement.

ADD_ITEM = ‘ADD_ITEM’;

GET_ITEM = ‘GET_ITEM’;

DELETE_ITEM = ‘DELETE_ITEM’;

DELETE_ALL_ITEMS = ‘DELETE_ALL_ITEMS’;

Reducer

Reducer is a pure function which returns a state based on actions performed by user. Pure functions is a function which always returns same output for same input. For example,

function reducer(state, action) {

                switch (action.type) {

                case: ‘INCREMENT’:

return { count: state.count + 1 };

     }

}

 Above function is a pure function because it always returns the same result if we pass the same input.

Build Beautiful Apps In Record Time With Flutter

By: | Tags: , , , | August 21, 2018

Flutter is a platform built by the Google that allows us to create super fast applications that can run on both Android platforms and iOS platforms.

Flatter is a new mobile development SDK that has brought you to by Google to help you build fast, beautiful and cross-platform mobile applications. It uses a language called Dart. Flutter works with existing code, utilized by developers and organizations round the world, and it’s free and open supply.

The Language Stack

        While React Native is a Javascript library, Flutter is an SDK that deals with a totally isolate / separate programming language called Dart.

       What is Dart?

         Dart may be a general-purpose programming language developed by Google. It may also be used for internet web, server and mobile app development and IOT devices. Dart is an object-oriented programming language and supports things like abstraction, encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism.

        Dart programs can run in one of these two modes:

       In check mode, dynamic type insertion is enabled. These types of claims can be triggered if the static type is provided in the code. The checked mode is recommended for development and testing because it helps to capture errors in your code when types do not match.

     Production mode is the default mode of all Dart programs. It provides a faster way to run your program.

        Shared Preference :

            Flutter provides a plugin for accessing preferences on a device which wraps NSUserDefaults(on iOS) and SharedPreferences on Android. These methods provide you with persistent storage.

        Implementing adaptive master-detail layouts in Flutter

       Usually, while developing apps for mobile phones, there are numbers of problems when there are too many screens. In fact, quite the opposite. There is a lot to be thought about how to organize the app so that it is not messy.

     All these apps have the following features:

  • Fast development
  • Expressive, beautiful UIs
  • Modern, reactive framework
  • Access native features and SDKs
  • Unified app development

     Reasons why you may love it :

  • Full set of Material Design widgets.
  • Everything is a Widget.
  • Many packages.
  • Different themes for Android/iOS.

       Advantages :

  • Faster code writing.
  • One code for 2 platforms.
  • Less testing.
  • Faster apps.
  • Perfect for MVP (Minimum Viable Product).

Which One to Choose RDBMS(Mysql) / MongoDB ?

By: | Tags: , , | August 21, 2018

What is MongoDB?

MongoDB is a database in which data is not in form of SQL database.

What was the need for MongoDB?

RDBMS is always the best choice for storing data of all type of applications. But the issue came with the RDBMS was of scalability as the data when data start growing exponentially. So MongoDB came into existence.


What is the difference between RDBMS and MongoDB?

  • RDBMS is written in C, C++, whereas MongoDB is written in C, C++, and JavaScript.
  • RDBMS stores data in the manner of two Dimensional column row structure, whereas in MongoDB data is stored in form of data document model.
  • When developing a database in RDBMS you have to design your own table and create database structure as per the project requirement, whereas in MongoDB there is no need to worry about database structure.
  • When dealing with RDBMS you have to use SQL Query for fetching and storing data, whereas when dealing with MongoDB you can use JSON query to fetch and store data.
  • MongoDB is almost 100 times faster than RDBMS.

Features of MongoDB:

  • Embedded support for data models
  • Autosharding
  • A wide range of storage engine support
  • In memory speed
  • Manageability

When to use the MongoDB database?

MongoDB but be used when you have a very large scale projects because of this the data would be easily scalable and the application working would be faster. This is possible because MongoDB does not have ORM.

A real-life example of MongoDB database

In India, the Unique Identification project i.e. Aadhar is the system which is developed using the MongoDB database.

eBay is an American multinational internet consumer-to-consumer company which has also use MongoDB.

AndroidX

Overview of AndroidX & How to Develop Project With AndroidX?

By: | Tags: , , | August 14, 2018

AndroidX

Google is rolling out a new package structure for Android development which is named as AndroidX.

Why introduced AndroidX, what would happen to existing Android?

We now that currently, android latest API for development is Oreo which is API level 27, now android is moving one step forward to a new operating system whose version would be API level 28.

The existing Android.* package hierarchy will be reserved for Android packages that are shipped with the operating system, means the existing android packages would only be used for Android OS own app such as camera app, message app, callapp etc.

Other packages will be issued in the new androidx.*package hierarchy, means the other new third-party application for API level 28 would be suggested to be developed with android.* package name.

Do you need to forcefully update to AndroidX?

No, the android.* packages will remain available on Google Maven for those apps versioned 27 and earlier.

How would I know what is the different-different packages version is for? What does it indicates?

Mainly there are three kinds of versioning semantics

  • MAJOR (e.g. 1.0.0 to 2.0.0) indicates that there is major API changes, so you need to check app after doing major updates.
  • MINOR (e.g. 1.0.0 to 1.0.1) indicates that this is some additions in some functionality in terms of backward-compatible management.
  • PATCH (e.g. 1.0.0-beta1 to 1.0.0-beta2) indicates that there is an improvement for backward-compatible and bug fixes to previous.

How to develop project with AndroidX?

Following are the things you need to take care when developing android application with AndroidX

Firstly, your new project needs to target API level 28 from build.gradlefile, because target API level 28 is necessary for AndroidX.

Secondly, you need to add following lines in your gradle.properties file

android.useAndroidX=true

android.enableJetifier=true

this would enable AndroidX support to your project.

Some of the examples of AndroidX packages:

Android AndroidX
com.android.support:cardview-v7 androidx.cardview:cardview:1.0.0-alpha1
com.android.support:design com.google.android.material:material:1.0.0-alpha1
com.android.support:recyclerview-v7 androidx.recyclerview:recyclerview:1.0.0-alpha1
com.android.support:support-v13 androidx.legacy:legacy-support-v13:1.0.0-alpha1
com.android.support:support-compat androidx.core:core:1.0.0-alpha1
com.android.support:multidex androidx.multidex:multidex:2.0.0
com.android.support:appcompat-v7 androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.0.0-alpha1

Whats is the latest version of AndroidX to use?

The first version of AndroidX was 1.0.0 alpha1 which were released on May 8, 2018

Currently, the latest version of AndroidX is 1.0.0-beta01 which is released on July 2, 2018

In-Memory Caching (ASP.NET Core)

Know About In-Memory Caching (ASP.NET Core)

By: | Tags: , , | August 14, 2018

Some of the things to grasp concerning In-Memory Caching in ASP.NET Core

The main purpose of caching mechanism is to boost the performance of an application. ASP.NET web forms technology, as well as ASP.NET MVC technology, could use server aspect information caching and was offered as an integral feature of the .NET framework. In ASP.NET Core we do not have cache object, you’ll implement in-memory caching quite simply.

  • Enable caching within the Startup.cs

ASP.NET Core doesn’t have the integral Cache object that you just will directly use within controllers as like ASP.NET internet forms and ASP.NET MVC. In-memory caching works through dependency injection and thus the primary step is to register the in-memory caching service within the Startup.cs.

So, open the Startup.cs class file and modify the ConfigureServices() method by adding AddMemoryCache().

To add in-memory caching to your application you would like to call AddMemoryCache() function on the services assortment. By this fashion, the default implementation of in-memory cache is injected to the controllers.

  • Uses of dependency injection to inject the cache object

For that go to Controller and declares a non-public variable of IMemoryCache. This variable gets appointed within the constructor. The constructor will receive the cache parameter through dependency injection then this cache object is kept within the native variable for later use.

  • Set() method to save an item in the cache

As and when you got IMemoryCache object, you can get and set values into the cache object.

Let’s sets a value to the cache in action method by using the cache.Set<string>(“username”, “admin”); the primary parameter of Set() method is the key name and that key we can use it for fetching the value from cache. The second parameter is that the value of the key.

  • Get() method to fetch data that stored in the cache

As and when you stored value the cache, you can be fetched it anywhere in the application by using Get() method and can display in view or do any kind of operation on it. For example. string username = cache.Get<string>(“username”);

  • Use of GetOrCreate() method

By using the cache.GetOrCreate() you can check whether the passed key exists or not and if it does not exist then will create new cache key value.

Ex. cache.GetOrCreate()<string>(“username”, entry => { return “admin”; });

  • Use of TryGetValue() to check whether the key exists or not

By using the cache.TryGetValue() we can check whether the key exists or not. Here the main difference between cache.GetOrCreate() and cache.TryGetValue() method is that TryGet() method will only check whether the key exists or not whereas GetOrCreate() method will cache whether the key exists or not and if it doesn’t exist then can create a new one.

Syntax for TryGet() method is as below:

cache.TryGetValue()<string>(“username”, out string username);

  • Set priority for cache

Similarly, as you can set the lapse arrangements of a reserved thing you can assign a priority value to a cached item. On the off chance that server encounters lack of memory in view of this need the things will be evacuated to recover the memory. To set the need you utilize MemoryCacheEntryOptions once more.

Apart from all above you can set a dependency between multiple cached items, set absolute and sliding expiration and also wire a callback when an item is removed from the cache.
