In the following, I will show how to consume web services in a few ways. For a more in-depth guide to better understanding how web services work, I recommend reading the following resources:
About three years ago I wrote a post on how to setup duplicity and by that time I was using the program for about two years. Not long after I made that post I realized that it wasn't the best backup solution for me. The two biggest reasons why I ditched duplicity was first, it was slow and second it ate up a lot of disk space. The two reasons go hand-in-hand. Duplicity doesn't do any deduplication, which means if I move a directory that is 100GB, and there was only 1GB of changes to existing files, the entire backup for the day would be 101GB.
One of my fiscal year goals at work is to update our starter app. When I first started I was tasked with updating the existing app from Laravel 5.1 to 5.5. That was almost four years ago. At the time I was still pretty new to Laravel and hadn't known about some of the other dependencies out there that would make my job easier, dependencies such as Orchid, Backpack, Laravel permissions, Voyager, etc. Please note that this is not a how-to guide and therefore I'm not going to go through the process of installing and setup of each project.
If you're on a Mac you can install Lando via Brew. However, it's recommended that you download the PKG file from the project's github Releases page.
