Development environment requirements :

Setting up your development environment on your local machine :

$ git clone
$ cd laravel-blog
$ cp .env.example .env
$ composer install
$ vagrant up
$ vagrant ssh

All following commands must be run inside the VM:

$ cd code
$ yarn install
$ artisan key:generate
$ artisan horizon:install
$ artisan telescope:install
$ artisan storage:link

Now you can access the application via http://localhost:8000.

There is no need to run php artisan serve. PHP is already running in the dedicated virtual machine.

Before starting

You need to run the migrations with the seeds :

$ artisan migrate --seed

This will create a new user that you can use to sign in :

email: [email protected]
password: 4nak1n

And then, compile the assets :

$ yarn dev # or yarn watch

Starting job for newsletter :

$ artisan tinker
> PrepareNewsletterSubscriptionEmail::dispatch();

Useful commands

Seeding the database :

$ artisan db:seed

Running tests :

$ ./vendor/bin/phpunit --cache-result --order-by=defects --stop-on-defect

Running php-cs-fixer :

$ ./vendor/bin/php-cs-fixer fix --config=.php_cs --verbose --dry-run --diff

Generating backup :

$ artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Backup\BackupServiceProvider"
$ artisan backup:run

Generating fake data :

$ artisan db:seed --class=DevDatabaseSeeder

Discover package

$ artisan package:discover

In development environnement, rebuild the database :

$ artisan migrate:fresh --seed

Accessing the API

Clients can access to the REST API. API requests require authentication via token. You can create a new token in your user profile.

Then, you can use this token either as url parameter or in Authorization header :

# Url parameter

# Authorization Header
curl --header "Authorization: Bearer your_private_token_here"

API are prefixed by api and the API version number like so v1.

Do not forget to set the X-Requested-With header to XMLHttpRequest. Otherwise, Laravel won't recognize the call as an AJAX request.

To list all the available routes for API :

$ artisan route:list --path=api
