VS Code in the browser, IDE Plugins, iPad Pros, JetBrains, Laravel and tmpfs…
In our first ever show, we talk a little about ourselves, why we’re called Failed To Launch, before getting on to the juicy tech stuff such as:
Chris’ Visual Studio Code Plugins
Intelephpense - personally the best intelligence for PHP
PHP file types - add some useful right click menu items for creating certain PHP files
Better PHPUnit - gives a easy way to run tests in the correct context of your cursor
Chris’ PhpStorm Plugins
Deep-assoc-completion - gives some really nice completion for array keys and other objects
Laravel - gives nice completion and click through for views and routes
Stastistic - to get some interesting stats about your projects
Joel's tmpfs RAM disk
mount -t tmpfs -o size=200M tmpfs /mnt/ramdisk
Et voila - /mnt/ramdisk is now running from your RAM, and you can tweak how big it is via the size value
Takes 1 hour 9 minutes 36 seconds to listen to.
Chris is from the West Midlands (UK) and is a Laravel and PHP developer at DRPG since 2015
He spends most of his time tinkering with Laravel, React, Tailwind and many other frameworks, tech and tools.
Chris' claim to fame is once meeting Taylor Otwell himself at Laracon in New York.
Joel is originally from Kent but now resides in Worcestershire (UK), and is a DevOps engineer at DRPG since 2015, but was also a PHP developer before that.
He usually spends all his time just
ls-ing around in a terminal (according to work colleagues).
Joel also loves travelling and has lived in many places in the UK, but one of his most favourite places is California and Orlando (or the worldwide theme park capitals!).
