Open Source Assets Compiler For Projects

Assets Compilation


I am from the laravel and actully now habitude to its process. It also reflected on assets ( scss/less/vuejs) compilation. I have tried multiple alternatives like preproce. But at last come to the laravel's built in packages. 


Laravel's Assets Compilers 


1) Laravel Elixir
2) Laravel Mix

Both of the projects are shown here are the gift from the laravel developer to us. By the way this projects are created to work for laravel but you can use this project stand alone for your projects. This projects are npm based so you have to install them using the node package manager ( npm) or yarn.

Some description about both

1) Laravel Elixri

Laravel Elixir provides a clean, fluent API for defining basic Gulp tasks for your Laravel application. Elixir supports common CSS and JavaScript pre-processors like Sass and Webpack. Using method chaining, Elixir allows you to fluently define your asset pipeline.

It's documentation says for Laravel Application. But, You can use it for  any project even non php project after all its npm based so you just have to pull the npm dependacys for it
But i will recommand to use laravel mix insted of the laravel elixir. Laravel Mix is next version of laravel elixir and have more facilites than it.

2) Laravel Mix

Laravel Mix provides a clean, fluent API for defining basic webpack build steps for your Laravel application. Mix supports several common CSS and JavaScript pre-processors.

This is the pacakge present in the github repo. of the jefferyway ( Best online web developement teacher for me ). In this package jeffry has shown the way to use laravel mix on your project.

You can see the actul integration of the laravel mix in the github project mchampaneri/gowork 


Need Just two files to integrate it
package.json : responsible to fetch the npm dependancies
webpack.mix.js : config file of mix to compile the file

Firebase - update a spacific fields of single element of object of array in firestore

Firebase - update a spacific fields of single element of object of array in firestore  Its actully advisable to use map instead of array when ever it is possible. But, there are cetain cases where you don't have option to do so.  For example, you are directly saving the response from some outer source without any modification and they send you an array. In this case you will have array to work with. Firestore does not support array here is why  "bad things can happen if you have multiple clients all trying to update or delete array elements at specific indexes. In the past, Cloud Firestore addressed these issues by limiting what you can do with arrays " For more details information you can refer to Kato Richardson post Best Practices: Arrays in Firebase .  Firestore document having array [ used from stackoverflow question ] Suppose you have array of object something like shown in array. Now you want to update endTime field of the object on the index [1]

Web designers and developers can reuse their experience and expertise in creating modern looking desktop applications. Various GUI frameworks offer different UI declaration and styling languages, such as QML and  XAML (Microsoft WPF) . On the contrary, Sciter allows using time proven, robust, and flexible HTML and CSS for GUI definition and GPU accelerated rendering.   Before using sciter I already tried other alternatives but none of them was satisfactory as an example first i tried andlabs / ui  library   i already have written a post on it. You can read it on post gui programming with golang .  But this library is still under construction and has no support for production apps.
