GlitterAndPoop.com — It’s like a unicorn shat all over your house. Get glitter sent to your friends and enemies. Coming soon, you can ship poop too! There’s even a fun game where you can guess who sent you glitter and send a revenge package to them.
I built glitter and poop over 3 days using Laravel, and a Sleek Bootsttap theme I found for free. I love the concept and hope you do too! Looking to add other prank as a service type services in the future too!
I have to say, I absolutely LOVE Laravel – everything about it.
One of my favorite features is the ability to separate your app into local/production versions.
I use a lot of packages for development, that I just don’t need on my production version of the app. How do I resolve this? By using two different environments w/ different App.php configs. Read my tutorial on this here.
You might find that this only works for your app when running it in the browser. Here’s how to make sure that the local environment is ALSO set for command-line e.g. Artisan and Tinker.
One option of course is to do:
But who wants to write –env=local after EVERY artisan command? I am a pragmatist and believe in using technology to my advantage. This is great when needing to switch back and forth for a minute, but when doing it all the time you need an alternative.
Next we simply create a new folder at : App/config/local/
If you create a App.php file -this file will override the global App.php in the parent directory while working in the local environment. So you can add different providers/facades to this local version and not mess up the production version.
