Laravel News:
Route improvements are coming to Laravel 5.4
Dec 07, 2016 @ 10:12:31

The Laravel News site has a quick new post about some routing improvements that are coming in the next larger release of the framework , Laravel v5.4:

As Laravel 5.4 development continues, two new improvements are coming to your routes, better route caching for large applications and fluently registering routes.

The route caching updates will help performance with larger applications, reducing the parsing time required to locate and push a request to the right location. The "fluent" route improvements basically allow for the definition of some things, like middleware or route names, as a part of the route definition rather than after the fact. Examples of this are included in the post.

CloudWays Blog:
How To Add ReCAPTCHA To Symfony 3 Forms
Oct 05, 2016 @ 12:19:31

The Cloudways blog has a tutorial posted helping you add CAPTCHA functionality of your Symfony 3 form handling. In this case they're adding the Google reCAPTCHA handling to a registration form for users of your system.

Websites use different techniques and methods to validate contact, login and user registration forms. Some opt for custom validation methods while a large majority deploy third-party validation techniques.

Google provides a well known and proven validation tool known as reCAPTCHA. In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to add Google reCAPTCHA to a Symfony 3 registration form. Hence, if you’re looking for a Recaptcha Symfony union, you’ve got it!

They start by helping you set up a Cloudways PHP application and install the latest version of the Symfony 3 framework on it as a sample application. They then walk you through the steps required to create a reCAPTCHA application and hooking it into your Cloudways server's hostname. With that set up they move over into the Symfony application, generating the User entity via Doctrine and creating the matching view/controller to handle the reCAPTCHA output. The registration form is then created and the handling is added to verify the CAPTCHA value submitted against the Google servers.

SitePoint PHP Blog:
Symfony2 Pre-registration and Invite System
May 07, 2015 @ 08:25:48

The SitePoint PHP blog has kicked off a new series of posts today with part one of a set of tutorials showing you how to create a registration and invitation system with Symfony2. While they've talked about general Symfony2 development before, this series will focus more on the security side, on authentication and authorization.

In this article series of two parts, we are going to talk about a very important area of web application development: Authentication and Authorization. Symfony2 has a very detailed elaboration of these two topics in its official documentation. Anyone who is seriously looking into this is encouraged to read through that official document after absorbing the essentials from this tutorial.

The author starts with a brief list of common user management tasks including registration via a form, sending confirmation emails and verifying the user's login. He helps you create the underlying "user" table (complete with the SQL) and talks a bit about the contents of a few of the columns. He includes the settings you'll need to put into your "security.yml" configuration file and a bit of detail on what each section and its settings mean. He then moves on to the "User" entity and class file, adding some functionality to the standard generated class. He also includes the code needed to create the invite and registration actions.

Programming With Yii2: Integrating User Registration
Mar 24, 2015 @ 12:27:16

NetTuts.com has posted the next part in their "Programming with Yii2" series today with this tutorial showing you how to integrate user registration into your sample application.

This is part four of a series on Yii2. In Programming With Yii2: Getting Started, we set up Yii2 locally, built a Hello World application, set up a remote server, and used Github to deploy our code. In part two, we learned about Yii's implementation of its Model View Controller architecture and how to build web pages and forms that collect and validate data. In part three, we learned about working with databases and ActiveRecord. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through integrating a popular user registration plugin.

They walk you through the use of the Yii2-User extension to provide the user handling functionality. The tutorial shows you how to get it installed (via Composer), run its database migrations to create the needed tables and where to update the configuration files to pull the plugin into the execution. They also help you set up SwiftMailer (what it uses to send its emails) and then gets into the integration of the registration with the application with a signup page.

Authentication With Laravel 4
Nov 12, 2013 @ 13:13:39

On NetTuts.com today there's a new tutorial posted showing you how to create user authentication with a Laravel framework-based application. Their example comes complete with registration and login code and the markup for the pages.

Authentication is required for virtually any type of web application. In this tutorial, I’d like to show you how you can go about creating a small authentication application using Laravel 4. We’ll start from the very beginning by creating our Laravel app using composer, creating the database, loading in the Twitter Bootstrap, creating a main layout, registering users, logging in and out, and protecting routes using filters.

They walk you through every step of the way - providing the PHP and HTML (and a bit of CSS) needed to make the system:

  • Creating a new project and installing dependencies
  • Connecting to the database and making the "Users" table
  • Making the registration page (with controller and view)
  • Handling the form submission from the page
  • Making a basic login page
  • Adding the "log out" functionality as well

You can also just hop over to Github and grab the full example if you'd like to see how it all fits together.
