Create A Point Of Sales System With Vue/Laravel + Stripe

Point Of Sales In The Palm Of Your Hand

In today’s tutorial I will be creating a point of sales system utilizing Vue and Laravel with Stripe being our payment processor. The program will allow a stripe account holder to take payments and if on mobile will allow them to scan the card via the device’s camera. It will utilize Laravel Passport for secure API calls and Stripe to handle the payments.

Installing The Dependencies

The app uses two dependencies as of now and those are Stipe and Laravel Passport install them using composer
 

composer require laravel/passportstripe/stripe-php

Now run the migrations (I’m using Laravel 5.5 so the packages are auto-discovered)

php artisan migrate

Now open your app/User.php model and edit the following

<?php
namespace App;
use Laravel\Passport\HasApiTokens;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;
class User extends Authenticatable
{
    use HasApiTokens, Notifiable;
}

Next register the Passport routes in your AuthServiceProvider

<?php
namespace App\Providers;
use Laravel\Passport\Passport;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Gate;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Support\Providers\AuthServiceProvider as ServiceProvider;
class AuthServiceProvider extends ServiceProvider
{
    /**
     * The policy mappings for the application.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $policies = [
        'App\Model' => 'App\Policies\ModelPolicy',
    ];
    /**
     * Register any authentication / authorization services.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function boot()
    {
        $this->registerPolicies();
        Passport::routes();
    }
}

Register the api driver in config/auth.php

'guards' => [
    'web' => [
        'driver' => 'session',
        'provider' => 'users',
    ],
    'api' => [
        'driver' => 'passport',
        'provider' => 'users',
    ],
],

Lastly set the web middleware group

'web' => [
    // Other middleware...
    \Laravel\Passport\Http\Middleware\CreateFreshApiToken::class,
],

Controller

This application only needs one external controller

php artisan make:controller StripeController

This controller will only contain 2 methods __construct() and charge(). The __construct method will set the StripeApiKey and the charge method actually makes the charge

<?php
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
class StripeController extends Controller
{
 //
 public function __construct(){
 \Stripe\Stripe::setApiKey(env('STRIPE_SECRET'));
 }
public function charge(Request $request){
 try {
 // Use Stripe's library to make requests...
 $token = \Stripe\Token::create(array(
 "card" => array(
 "number" => $request->card['card_number'],
 "exp_month" => $request->card['expiry_month'],
 "exp_year" => $request->card['expiry_year'],
 "cvc" => $request->card['cvv']
 )
 ));
 \Stripe\Charge::create(array(
 "amount" => $request->amount * 100,
 "currency" => "usd",
 "source" => $token, // obtained with Stripe.js
 "description" => $request->description,
 "receipt_email" => $request->email
 ));
 return response()->json([
 'success' => true
 ]);
 } catch(\Stripe\Error\Card $e) {
 // Since it's a decline, \Stripe\Error\Card will be caught
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (\Stripe\Error\RateLimit $e) {
 // Too many requests made to the API too quickly
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (\Stripe\Error\InvalidRequest $e) {
 // Invalid parameters were supplied to Stripe's API
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (\Stripe\Error\Authentication $e) {
 // Authentication with Stripe's API failed
 // (maybe you changed API keys recently)
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (\Stripe\Error\ApiConnection $e) {
 // Network communication with Stripe failed
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (\Stripe\Error\Base $e) {
 // Display a very generic error to the user, and maybe send
 // yourself an email
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 } catch (Exception $e) {
 // Something else happened, completely unrelated to Stripe
 return response()->json($e->getJsonBody());
 }
 }
}

The controller is now finished let’s create the API routes

API Routes

Open the routes/api.php file and add the following routes

<?php
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| API Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register API routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| is assigned the "api" middleware group. Enjoy building your API!
|
*/
Route::middleware('auth:api')->get('/user', function (Request $request) {
 return $request->user();
});
Route::middleware('auth:api')->post('/charge','StripeController@charge');

The backend is now complete now for the front end.

Vue Component

Get rid of the example component and create a new one called ChargeComponent and add the following content

<template>
 <div class="container">
 <div class="row">
 <div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
 <div class="panel panel-default">
 <div class="panel-heading">Make A Charge</div>

 }
 }
 }
</script>

Edit the app.js file to match the following

/**

 * includes Vue and other libraries. It is a great starting point when
 * building robust, powerful web applications using Vue and Laravel.
 */
require('./bootstrap');
window.Vue = require('vue');
/**

 * or customize the JavaScript scaffolding to fit your unique needs.
 */
Vue.component('charge-component', require('./components/ChargeComponent.vue'));
const app = new Vue({
 el: '#app'
 });

now install the npm dependencies and run mix

npm install && npm run dev

Setting Your Twitter Account To Auto Like Posts Of Interest

Auto Likes

Are a great way to interact with accounts who might be potential followers and is a great way for your to explore your potential audience. I will show you how to take the existing twitter microservice we have and extend it to stream a filter of tweets that track keywords, then like that tweet. If you have no idea what I am talking about then perhaps you should start here when we began this project.
 

Extending twitter.js

Open up the node script we created in the last tutorial, twitter.js and inside we are going to add the code needed to track tweets that meet a certain filter requirement. However it is important that we stream it so we get fresh content coming in.

var filter = T.stream('statuses/filter',{track: ['#30days30sites','#100DaysOfCode','#301DaysOfCode','#Webapp','#laravel','#vuejs']});
filter.on('tweet',function(tweet){
 T.post('favorites/create', { id: tweet.id_str },function(data){
 console.log(data);
 });
});

In the example above I am tracking all tweets in real-time that contain #30days30sites, #100DaysOfCode, #301DaysOfCode, #Webapp, #laravel and #vuejs. Then whenever the ‘tweet’ event fires I create a favorite (same thing as a like) and grabs the tweet id. Of course in your example you are going to want to change what you track. These 6 lines of code do wonders for me, there is something special about random people liking your tweets, also many people come and visit my profile after seeing I liked something on theirs. SInce launching this app I have definitely noticed an uptick in the amount of accounts that follow me.
In the future I plan on extending this to incorporate AI algorithms to parse what exactly was said and retweet or respond depending on the context or the tweet. Perhaps when I have the time I will do a livestream of the event. If there is anything you would like to see me do leave it in a comment below.

Automating Your DMs With Nodejs

In The Last Tutorial

We created a Laravel/Vue app that allows us to automate and schedule our Twitter posts. Now we are going to add a Node.js microservice that will send an auto DM to those who follow you on Twitter. This adds a personal touch when you gain new followers and makes people more apt to pay attention to your tweets. If you don’t have the app from the last tutorial, you can download it here. Otherwise open up your terminal to the project root and let’s get started.
 

Node Script

This node script will use the twit npm module to create a Twitter stream listening to our own account. When the follow event is fired we will grab the source id of the user that sent us a follow request, after which we will send a DM to that user id with a welcome message. Let’s start by adding the twit dependency and the dotenv dependency.

npm install twit dotenv --save

Now create a new file called twitter.js and fill with the following:

require('dotenv').config()
var Twit = require('twit')
var T = new Twit({
 consumer_key: process.env.TWITTER_CONSUMER_KEY,
 consumer_secret: process.env.TWITTER_CONSUMER_SECRET,
 access_token: process.env.TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN,
 access_token_secret: process.env.TWITTER_ACCESS_TOKEN_SECRET,
 timeout_ms: 60*1000, // optional HTTP request timeout to apply to all requests.
})var stream = T.stream('user');
stream.on('connected', function(response){
 console.log('Connected!')
});
stream.on('follow',function(data){
 console.log(data.source.id);
 T.post('direct_messages/events/new',{
 "event": {
 "type": "message_create",
 "message_create": {
 "target": {
 "recipient_id": data.source.id
 },
 "message_data": {
 "text": "Thanks for the follow! Be sure to check out my blog https://jyroneparker.com",
 }
 }
 }
})});

The dotenv dependency allows us to use the same .env file to grab our Twitter app credentials that we used in our Laravel app. As you can see the stream fires on different events we just choose the follow and the connected events. Lastly we need to run the script make sure you have supervisor or some other program running it as a daemon.

node twitter.js

If you want to extend the functionality read up on the Twitter stream documentation here. Otherwise add some auto like functionality to your bot.

How To Automate Your Twitter Posts With Laravel and Vue

Twitter Marketing Is Huge

Well for my platform it is anyway, whenever I create a new app or website Twitter is the first social network that I turn to. It’s fast, the analytics are on point, and it’s easy to use, my only issue is that I am busy coding and whatnot to Tweet as much as I would like or need to in order to optimize my reach. This leaves me with two options:

  1. Pay someone to manage my account for me
  2. Learn the Twitter API and write my own automation program to manage it myself

The idea of paying another person to manage my social media just made my stomach and my wallet hurt so the OBVIOUS choice is to use the API. Now let me tell you thisn  API is DENSE there is a lot you can do with it (click here for the docs) so I will only focus on one aspect in this tutorial, sending posts. The first basic application that I wrote was a simple post scheduler, it allows me to create as many posts as I want, set a date-time to post at, then a Laravel job executes at the desired time, then deletes the entry from the database. This basic application has saved me tremendous time because now I can just schedule all my important tweets weeks or months early!
 

Registering Your Twitter App

Before you can do any actual coding you need to register your app on Twitter, head over to the developer portal and create your app. The home page will show a list of your Twitter apps, if this is your first time then you won’t have any apps, click on create new app.
Fill out all the mandatory fields then proceed you should see a screen that shows you your Consume Key and Consumer Secret. Copy those down and also create some access tokens. These access tokens are for writing Twitter apps that only interact with your OWN account. Copy down the access token and the access token secret and that’s all you have to do. Now let’s code!
 

App Components

 

The main page will be a Vue.js app that allows you to add new tweets, and an area below to edit and delete them. In a traditional SPA manner the app will interact with an API for all it’s calls. The backend will consist of one model (Tweet), one controller (TweetController), and one Job ProcessTweet, pretty simple stuff let’s begin.  Start by creating your Laravel application.

laravel new tweeter && cd tweeter && php artisan make:auth

This app only has one composer dependency add it

composer require thujohn/twitter

In the config/app.php make sure to add the following provider and alias

'providers' => [
    Thujohn\Twitter\TwitterServiceProvider::class,
]
'aliases' => [
    'Twitter' => Thujohn\Twitter\Facades\Twitter::class,
]

Lastly run the following command to import the twitter config/ttwitter.php file and modify inserting your Twitter app credentials

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Thujohn\Twitter\TwitterServiceProvider"

Tweet Model

Now create the Tweet model along with it’s migration

php artisan make:model -m Tweet

The Tweet model only has two attributes a string that holds the content that is limited to 140 characters and a timestamp for when you want the tweet to be published.

<?php
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
class CreateTweetsTable extends Migration
{
 /**
 * Run the migrations.
 *
 * @return void
 */
 public function up()
 {
 Schema::create('tweets', function (Blueprint $table) {
 $table->increments('id');
 $table->string('content',140);
 $table->timestamp('publish_timestamp');
 $table->timestamps();
 });
 }/**
 * Reverse the migrations.
 *
 * @return void
 */
 public function down()
 {
 Schema::dropIfExists('tweets');
 }
}

The Tweet model is pretty bare bones

<?php
namespace App;
use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;
class Tweet extends Model
{
 //
 public $fillable = [
 'content',
 'publish_timestamp'
 ];
}

Go ahead and run your migrations we are done with models, now to make our RESTful controller.

RESTful Controller and Routes

Create a resource controller for our Tweet model

php artisan make:controller --resource TweetController

The controller is basic I purposely left out validation and such as a homework exercise for you, but the gist is basic CRUD operations that return JSON

<?php
namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Tweet;
use App\Jobs\ProcessTweet;
class TweetController extends Controller
{
 /**
 * Display a listing of the resource.
 *
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function index()
 {
 //
 return response()->json(Tweet::all());
 }
/**
 * Show the form for creating a new resource.
 *
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function create()
 {
 //
 }
/**
 * Store a newly created resource in storage.
 *
 * @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function store(Request $request)
 {
 //create the tweet
 $tweet = Tweet::Create([
 'content' => $request->content,
 'publish_timestamp' => \Carbon\Carbon::parse($request->publish_timestamp)
 ]);
 //Add tweet to the queue
 ProcessTweet::dispatch($tweet)->delay(\Carbon\Carbon::parse($request->publish_timestamp,'America/New_York')->diffInSeconds(\Carbon\Carbon::now('America/New_York')));
//return json
 return response()->json($tweet);
 }/**
 * Display the specified resource.
 *
 * @param int $id
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function show($id)
 {
 //
 return response()->json(Tweet::findOrFail($id));
 }/**
 * Show the form for editing the specified resource.
 *
 * @param int $id
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function edit($id)
 {
 //
 }/**
 * Update the specified resource in storage.
 *
 * @param \Illuminate\Http\Request $request
 * @param int $id
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function update(Request $request, $id)
 {
 //
 $tweet = Tweet::findOrFail($id);
 $tweet->fill([
 'content' => $request->content,
 'publish_timestamp' => \Carbon\Carbon::parse($request->publish_timestamp)
 ]);
 //return json
 return response()->json($tweet);
 }
/**
 * Remove the specified resource from storage.
 *
 * @param int $id
 * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
 */
 public function destroy($id)
 {
 //
 Tweet::destroy($id);
 }
}

Notice the ProcessTweet job? We will implement that next but for now open up the routes/api.php file and add the following resource route

<?php
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| API Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register API routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| is assigned the "api" middleware group. Enjoy building your API!
|
*/
Route::middleware('auth:api')->get('/user', function (Request $request) {
 return $request->user();
});
Route::resource('/tweet','TweetController');

Now our Vue application (patience it’s coming) can interact with our backend. Now let’s add our ProcessTweet job and we will be finished on the backend.

ProcessTweet Job

In order to schedule the tweets to post at any given time you must utilize Laravel Jobs this will allow you to schedule your events to fire at a certain point in time. If you aren’t familiar with jobs and queues please look at my previous post because I will not be covering setting up queues in this tutorial, otherwise create a new job

php artisan make:job ProcessTweet

In the handle method we simply call the Twitter API and send the tweet then delete it from the database

<?php
namespace App\Jobs;
use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Queue\SerializesModels;
use Illuminate\Queue\InteractsWithQueue;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Bus\Dispatchable;
use Twitter;
class ProcessTweet implements ShouldQueue
{
 use Dispatchable, InteractsWithQueue, Queueable, SerializesModels;
 public $tweet;
 /** * Create a new job instance.
 *
 * @return void
 */
 public function __construct(\App\Tweet $tweet)
 {
 //
 $this->tweet = $tweet;
 }
/**
 * Execute the job.
 *
 * @return void
 */
 public function handle()
 {
 //post the tweet
 Twitter::postTweet(['status' => $this->tweet->content, 'format' => 'json']);
 //delete the tweet from database
 \App\Tweet::destroy($this->tweet->id);
 }
}

Your backend is now functioning run your queue worker and test around with it or continue to creating the Vue application.

Getting The Front End Together

We need to add vue-resource to call our api so let’s add that first

npm install --save vue-resource

Also update the resources/js/app.js file

/**
 * First we will load all of this project's JavaScript dependencies which
 * includes Vue and other libraries. It is a great starting point when
 * building robust, powerful web applications using Vue and Laravel.
 */
require('./bootstrap');
window.Vue = require('vue');
const resource = require('vue-resource');
Vue.use(resource);
/**
 * Next, we will create a fresh Vue application instance and attach it to
 * the page. Then, you may begin adding components to this application
 * or customize the JavaScript scaffolding to fit your unique needs.
 */
Vue.component('tweet-component', require('./components/TweetComponent.vue'));
const app = new Vue({
 el: '#app'
});

As you can see the example-component has been replaced with the tweet-component rename your ExampleComponent.vue to TweetComponent.vue and update it with the following contents

<template>
 <div class="container">
 <div class="row">
 <div class="col-md-8 col-md-offset-2">
 <div class="panel panel-default">
 <div class="panel-heading">Tweet Scheduler</div>

 </div>
 </div>
</div>
 </div>
 </div>
</template>
<script>
export default {
 mounted() {
 console.log('Component mounted.')
 },
 data(){
 return {
 tweets: {},
 newTweet:{
 'content': '',
 'publish_timestamp': ''
 },
 selectedTweet:{
 'content': '',
 'publish_timestamp': ''
 },
 ready: false
 }
 },
 created(){
 this.$http.get('/api/tweet').then(function(data){
 this.tweets = data.data;
 this.ready = true;
 });
 },
 methods: {
 addTweet: function(tweet){
 this.$http.post('/api/tweet',tweet).then(function(data){
 this.tweets.unshift({content:tweet.content,publish_timestamp:tweet.publish_timestamp});
 });
 },
 editTweet: function(tweet){
 this.$http.put('/api/tweet/'+tweet.id,this.selectedTweet).then(function(data){
 let index = this.tweets.indexOf(tweet);
 this.tweets[index] = tweet;
 alert('Updated!');
 $("#editModal").modal('hide');
 });
 },
 openEditTweet: function(tweet){
 console.log(tweet);
 this.selectedTweet = tweet;
 $("#editModal").modal({show: true});
},
 deleteTweet: function(tweet){
 this.$http.delete('/api/tweet/'+tweet.id).then(function(data){
 let index = this.tweets.indexOf(tweet)
 this.tweets.splice(index, 1);
 });
}
}
}
</script>

Open up your resources/assets/sass/app.scss file and add the following fade transition

.fade-enter-active, .fade-leave-active {
 transition: opacity .5s
}
.fade-enter, .fade-leave-to /* .fade-leave-active below version 2.1.8 */ {
 opacity: 0
}
