Async Task without Queue or E-loop PHP

Most react-PHP code I’ve seen in the open that is not extension-based (doesn’t extend the PHP core language) uses some kind Event-Loop, something similar to how many technologies or languages(I.e. JavaScript) implement concurrency that doesn’t support threads.

And historically on single-core CPU’s threads practically transformed into loops underneath. But the main idea is that in many languages, an async behavior is very easily achieved, maybe you need a keyword, maybe you need a special class, but in general, it is simple.

Now if you want the easiest way to do something asynchronous in PHP it will be a little costly, you can do that by spawning a new PHP process directly from PHP. View full article

Simplest way to reduce the page number links in Laravel

Recently and currently(Laravel 5.6) Laravel is using Bootstrap-4 and they’ve updated all their views accordingly, and when you want to use Laravel’s pagination feature you may have a bit of a problem in the mobile world as there are too many page links to be shown in an esthetic way on a mobile screen.

So you can do a lot of things to resolve this problem but the simplest way available is to change the view which defines the links listening.
First, we need to publish that view, this will force Laravel to use the published view, not the one residing in the app-source/vendor directory.
We do that with the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=laravel-pagination

You should immediately see after executing the command the following:

Copied Directory [\vendor\laravel\framework\src\Illuminate\Pagination\resources\views] To [\resources\views\vendor\pagination]
Publishing complete.
