In our daily life, we are going through lots of packages, and some of us don't know how to build our own package into Laravel.

We are going to perform the core steps to create your own package in laravel. In this tutorial we are going to build zoom package, so we will perform steps related to it.

Setup Fresh Laravel Repo 

Setup fresh laravel repo, and then create directories within it. 

for e.g Create infyomlabs/zoom-api directory into root.


Now create src directory into zoom-api

Run Composer init Into src Directory

After hitting composer init it will ask some information from you, as you can see in below image I have entered some of information. you can just hit enter if you do not want to add other information.


Add your config file (Optional)

Create directory config into src directory and add your config.php file there from where you can manage your env variables. 


Add Service Provider

Create your service provider from where you can do lots of actions. like you can publish config/routes/ migrations files from there. here we are publishing the zoom config file. 


Add your class (Which contains all functions) 

Here we have added a Zoom class which will be contained all zoom functions. 

Update Composer.json 


Finally, Test it in your existing project

Put the following code to your main composer.json (in your project's root). and hit composer update

  "repositories": [
        {
            "type": "path",
            "url": "infyomlabs/zoom-api",
            "options": {
                "symlink": true
            }
        }
    ],
    "license": "MIT",
    "require": {
        "infyomlabs/zoom-api": "dev-develop"
    },

Few main things remember to test an Android Application which are mention below:

1. Functional testing test cases

There are many hands involved in creating a mobile app.  These stakeholders may have different expectations.  Functional testing determines whether a mobile app complies with these various requirements and uses.  Examine and validate all functions, features and competencies of a product.

Twelve functional test case scenario questions:

  1. Does the application work as intended when starting and stopping?  
  2. Does the app work accordingly on different mobile and operating system versions?
  3. Does the app behave accordingly in the event of external interruptions?
  4. (i.e. receiving SMS, minimized during an incoming phone call, etc.)
  5. Can the user download and install the app with no problem?
  6. Can the device multitask as expected when the app is in use or running in the background?
  7. Applications work satisfactorily after installing the app.
  8. Do social networking options like sharing, publishing, etc. work as needed?
  9. Do mandatory fields work as required?  Does the app support payment gateway transactions?
  10. Are page scrolling scenarios working as expected?
  11. Navigate between different modules as expected.
  12. Are appropriate error messages received if necessary? 

There are two ways to run functional testing: scripted and exploratory.


Scripted
Running scripted tests is just that - a structured scripted activity in which testers follow predetermined steps.  This allows QA testers to compare actual results with expected ones.  These types of tests are usually confirmatory in nature, meaning that you are confirming that the application can perform the desired function.  Testers generally run into more problems when they have more flexibility in test design.

Exploratory
Exploratory testing investigates and finds bugs and errors on the fly.  It allows testers to manually discover software problems that are often unforeseen;  where the QA team is testing so that most users actually use the app.  learning, test design, test execution and interpretation of test results as complementary activities that run in parallel throughout the project.  Related: Scripted Testing Vs Exploratory Testing: Is One Better Than The Other? 

2. Performance testing test cases

The primary goal of benchmarking is to ensure the performance and stability of your mobile application

Seven Performance test case scenarios ensure:

  1. Can the app handle the expected cargo volumes?
  2. What are the various mobile app and infrastructure bottlenecks preventing the app from performing as expected?
  3. Is the response time as expected?  Are battery drain, memory leaks, GPS and camera performance within the required guidelines?
  4. Current network coverage able to support the app at peak, medium and minimum user levels?
  5. Are there any performance issues if the network changes from / to Wi-Fi and 2G / 3G / 4G?
  6. How does the app behave during the intermittent phases of connectivity?
  7. Existing client-server configurations that provide the optimum performance level? 

3. Battery usage test cases

While battery usage is an important part of performance testing, mobile app developers must make it a top priority.  Apps are becoming more and more demanding in terms of computing power.  So, when developing your mobile app testing strategy, understand that battery-draining mobile apps degrade the user experience.  Device hardware - including battery life - varies by model and manufacturer.  Therefore, QA testing teams must have a variety of new and older devices on hand in their mobile device laboratory.  In addition, the test environment must replicate real applications such as operating system, network conditions (3G, 4G, WLAN, roaming) and multitasking from the point of view of the battery consumption test.

Seven battery usage test case scenarios to pay special attention to:

  1. Mobile app power consumption 
  2. User interface design that uses intense graphics or results in unnecessarily high database queries
  3. Battery life can allow the app to operate at expected charge volumes
  4. Battery  low and high performance requirements
  5. Application operation if used when battery is removed Battery usage and data leaks
  6. New features and updates do not introduce new battery usage and data 
  7. Related:  The secret art of battery testing on Android 

4. Usability Testing Test Cases

Usability testing of mobile applications provides end users with an intuitive and user-friendly interface.  This type of testing is usually done manually, to ensure the app is easy to use and meets real users' expectations.

Nine usability test case scenarios ensure:

  1. The buttons are of a user-friendly size. 
  2. The position, style, etc. of the buttons are consistent within the app
  3. Icons are consistent within the application
  4. The zoom in and out functions work as expected
  5. The keyboard can be minimized and maximized easily.
  6. The action or touching the wrong item can be easily undone.
  7. Context menus are not overloaded.
  8. Verbiage is simple, clear and easily visible.
  9. The end user can easily find the help menu or user manual in case of need.
  10. Related: High impact usability testing that is actually doable 

We will see more points in our next articles.

Snackbars are fairly common in the Android app. Almost every app uses a snack bar to display some information about what's going on in the app. You can consider Snackbar as an alternative or the best version of Toasts in Android.

Step 1:- Using a normal Snackbar

To use Snackbar in your app, you just have to have the material design dependency in your app. Add Material design dependency to your build.Gradle app-level.

dependencies {
    implementation "com.google.android.material:$latest_version"
}
And then you can use the snack bar just like toast. For example:

Snackbar.make(view, "Show some message here", Snackbar.LENGTH_SHORT).show()
Step 2: Working with the MainActivity.xml


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:app="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res-auto"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:id="@+id/coordinatorLayout"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    tools:context="com.example.application.snackbarapp.MainActivity">

    <RelativeLayout
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="match_parent">

        <Button
            android:id="@+id/button"
            android:layout_width="wrap_content"
            android:layout_height="wrap_content"
            android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
            android:layout_centerVertical="true"
            android:text="show snackbar" />

    </RelativeLayout>

</android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout>
Step 3: Creating a custom layout for a snack bar

Under Layout, the folder creates a layout for the snack bar that must be inflated when creating a snack bar under the mainactivity.java file.

import android.graphics.Color;
import android.support.design.widget.CoordinatorLayout;
import android.support.design.widget.Snackbar;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    private CoordinatorLayout coordinatorLayout;
    private Button button;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);

        coordinatorLayout = findViewById(R.id.coordinatorLayout);
        button = findViewById(R.id.button);

        button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
            @Override
            public void onClick(View v) {
                showSnackbar();
            }
        });
    }

    public void showSnackbar() {
        Snackbar snackbar = Snackbar.make(coordinatorLayout, "Marked as Read", Snackbar.LENGTH_INDEFINITE)
                .setAction("UNDO", new View.OnClickListener() {
                    @Override
                    public void onClick(View v) {
                        Snackbar snackbar1 = Snackbar.make(coordinatorLayout, "Undo successful", Snackbar.LENGTH_SHORT);
                        snackbar1.show();
                    }
                })
                .setActionTextColor(Color.RED);

        snackbar.show();
    }
}

Hope you guys are familiar with Spatie Media Library. It's a very useful and time-saving package to manage file uploading.

It's also providing support to convert your images to thumbnails while storing images. you can generate a thumbnail of the image with the size (height, width) you want.

They are calling thumbnails to Conversions. You can generate multiple thumbnails with different sizes as you want.

So let's see some short example which helps us to create thumbnails of an uploaded image.

Implement the HasMediaTrait into your Model 

Here we have a User model and we want to generate a thumbnail of the user upload his profile image. you have to add  HasMediaTrait to the User model and need to extend  HasMedia.

use IlluminateDatabaseEloquentModel;
use SpatieMediaLibraryModelsMedia;
use SpatieMediaLibraryHasMediaHasMedia;
use SpatieMediaLibraryHasMediaHasMediaTrait;

class User extends Model implements HasMedia
{
    use HasMediaTrait;

    public function registerMediaConversions(Media $media = null)
    {
        $this->addMediaConversion('profile-thumb')
              ->width(150)
              ->height(150);
    }
}

Here we have defined function registerMediaConversions in which we can manage the size of a thumbnail, which means how much height or width we want for the thumbnail.

So when we upload an image using the media library, 

$media = User::first()->addMedia($pathToImage)->toMediaCollection();
it will auto-generate the thumbnails with given height and width. 

How to fetch the generated thumbnail? 












$media->getPath();  // the path to the where the original image is stored
$media->getPath('profile-thumb') // the path to the converted image with dimensions 150*150

$media->getUrl();  // the url to the where the original image is stored
$media->getUrl('profile-thumb') // the url to the converted image with dimensions 150*150

How to generate multiple thumbnails for a single image? 








..... in User Model .....
use SpatieImageManipulations;


    public function registerMediaConversions(Media $media = null)
    {
        $this->addMediaConversion('profile-thumb')
              ->width(150)
              ->height(150);
    }

        $this->addMediaConversion('old-profile-thumb')
              ->sepia()
              ->border(8, 'black', Manipulations::BORDER_OVERLAY);
    }
so, it will generate 2 thumbnails with different image properties. you can use different image properties directly while generating thumbnails.

That's it, you can read more about the spatie media library conversions (thumbnails) here

While developing apps in Android Studio, developers can create an APK file and share it with other developers or to QA people for testing purposes.
APK can be created with two types:
                                                   1.Debug APK
                                                   2.Release APK
  • Debug APK is very fast in building and Release APK is a little bit slow.

How to create Release APK File:



  • Flowing below all steps 
  • Open android studio

Multiple logo file formats

Digital logo applications such as websites and anything seen on the screen use the RGB color spectrum. This color spectrum is more varied than standard printed material so digitally used logo files are designed a little differently. They usually do not require high-resolution art and are not limited to one color.

The printed logo application like printed brochures, business cards, T-shirts, decals, folders, and ink on paper is 99% of the time prepared with CMYK and Pantone color spectrum. This spectrum is handled differently than a digital application and requires high resolution so that it looks crisp when printed on paper.

Logo File Formats

Logo file formats can come in many shapes and sizes. The format is driven by how it will be used, now and in the future, as well as what the logo looks like. When your logo designer provides the digital file formats to you, place them somewhere secure so you do not misplace them and can consistently reference the files. Below are common logo file formats that cover 99% of all logo marketing applications.

  • JPG
  • PNG
  • GIF
  • EPS
  • AI
  • PDF
  • SVG


Which logo file formats are most common?

It is very common to have JPG or PNG logo file formats. This is most common because of many programs such as Word and PowerPoint import/drop. When you use these file formats on the screen, it is mostly acceptable. But have you ever tried to enlarge one of these file formats and the logo starts to get blurred or pixelated? This is because these formats are pixel-based and limited in how much they can be expanded before image quality deteriorates.


Breakdown of logo file formats and their best uses

The use of JPG (or JPEG) does not require digital and print, as it is the RGB and CMYK color space. If you don't have software like Photoshop, it creates colorful spots. One way to determine which large size JPG logo file can be used is to drag and drop the logo into your web browser window; You can use a digital app and some small print apps when viewing four or five-inch spots or more logos. JPG files are pixel-based and can be quite large. They also do not support PNG (listed below) as a demonstration background.

PNG Logo files are good for placing your logo on a photo above a photo or on a colored background in a digital app as it supports transparency. PNG logo file formats are widely supported on websites. PNG for any printed projects. Do not use files. PNG files are pixel-based and do not expand well.

We have recently developed a site into the gatsby. We want to add Google Analytics to the website.

So, this is the way we implemented Google Analytics in the Gatsby site.

Use Gatsby Google GTag Plugin

Gatsby has a plugin gatsby-plugin-google-gtag that be used to easily add Google Global Site Tag to your Gatsby site.

Install the package by running the following command:

npm i gatsby-plugin-google-gtag --save

Configuration

Once the installation is complete, you can now add this plugin to your gatsby-config.js:

Configure trackingIds and other options. Add this into the plugins array. Like,

module.exports = {
  // ...
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: `gatsby-plugin-google-gtag`,
      options: {
              // You can add multiple tracking ids and a pageview event will be fired for all of them.
              trackingIds: [
                "GA-TRACKING_ID", // Google Analytics / GA
                "AW-CONVERSION_ID", // Google Ads / Adwords / AW
                "DC-FLOODIGHT_ID", // Marketing Platform advertising products (Display & Video 360, Search Ads 360, and Campaign Manager)
              ],
              // This object gets passed directly to the gtag config command
              // This config will be shared across all trackingIds
              gtagConfig: {
                optimize_id: "OPT_CONTAINER_ID",
                anonymize_ip: true,
                cookie_expires: 0,
              },
              // This object is used for configuration specific to this plugin
              pluginConfig: {
                // Puts tracking script in the head instead of the body
                head: false,
                // Setting this parameter is also optional
                respectDNT: true,
                // Avoids sending pageview hits from custom paths
                exclude: ["/preview/**", "/do-not-track/me/too/"],
              },
      },
    },
  ],
}

This plugin automatically sends a “pageview” event to all products given as “trackingIds” on every Gatsby's route change.

If you want to call a custom event you have access to window.gtag where you can call an event for all products.

Check out this code.

typeof window !== "undefined" && window.gtag("event", "click", { ...data })

NOTE: This plugin only works in production mode! To test your Global Site Tag is installed and 

You need to run the following command for firing events correctly.

gatsby build && gatsby serve

If you need to exclude any path from the tracking system, you can add one or more to this optional array.

We will learn to run the app without connecting a USB cable in this blog. The main purpose of this blog is to let users run apps without any restriction. Sometimes if the cable is connected with the device and if the device cable gets disturbed then the app not run properly.

Let's see how we can run the app without cable.

Step 1: Click File Menu => Settings

Step 2: Click Plugins



Step 3: Install ADB Wi-Fi Plugin


Notes:

  • In the third image, I already installed the plugin in my android studio. But in your case, you may need to install it.
  • Then your android studio restart.

After the restart, your android studio will show the "ADB Wifi" option showing as per the following image

Click ADB Wifi and the below screen will be displayed.

  • Click to connect 
  • Make sure your device and pc are connected to the same wifi. Otherwise, it will not get connected.
  • You will need to connect one time when the android studio is opened the first time.

One of our clients once asked me to explain what CMYK means and what is the difference between it and RGB. Here's why it's important.






We discussed the need for one of their vendors to provide or convert a digital image file as CMYK. If this conversion is not done properly, the resulting image may have muddy colors and lack vibrancy that may reflect badly on your brand.


CMYK is an acronym for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (Black) - the ink colors used in the typical four-color printing process. RGB is an acronym for red, green, and blue light colors used in digital display screens.


CMYK is a term widely used in the graphic design business and is also known as "full-color". This printing method uses a process where each ink color is printed with a specific pattern, each subtractive color overlapping to create a spectrum. In the subtractive color spectrum, the more color you overlap, the darker the color becomes. Our eyes interpret this printed color spectrum as images and words on paper or printed surfaces

Printing a four-color process is not possible with what you see on your computer monitor.

RGB is an additive color spectrum. By default, any image displayed on a monitor or digital display screen will be created in RGB. In this color space, the more overlapping color you add, the lighter the resulting image. For this reason, almost every digital camera saves its images in the RGB color spectrum.

2.png 80.5 KB

RGB color spectrum is higher than CMYK.


CMYK is for printing. RGB is for digital screens. But the thing to remember is that the RGB color spectrum is larger than CMYK, so what you see on your computer monitor is not possible by printing a four-color process. When we are designing artwork for our clients, careful attention is paid when converting artwork from RGB to CMYK. In the example above, you can see how RGB images with very bright colors can see unnecessary color shifts when converting to CMYK.



At Trillion, a combination of quality devices and expert eyes results in colors that look great in whatever environment they appear in, so your brand will always look its best. Don't let RGB fool you. If your brand has experienced a mismatch between your print and digital marketing efforts and you want to improve things.
