This disables app transport security and allows non-HTTPS requests.
Note: it is not recommended to use non-HTTPS requests for sensitive data. A better
approach is to fix the non-secure resources. However, this patch will work in a pinch.
To apply the fix in your Ionic/Cordova app, edit the file located here:
platforms/ios/MyApp/MyApp-Info.plist
And add this XML right before the end of the file inside of the last </dict> entry:

*
* @return 1 if $a is greater (a later version) than $b, 0 if $a is equal to $b, -1 if $a is less (an earlier version) than $b

Setup php-mycrypt on macOS (and versions of Mac OS X)

These steps should have been mentioned in the prerequisites of the Laravel Installation Guide, since I'm surely not the only person trying to get Laravel running on macOS.

Instructions to Change PHP Installation


First, Lets find out what version of PHP we're running (To find out if it's the default version).

To do that, Within the terminal, Fire this command:

which php

Never Expose DB Results Directly

  1. If you rename a field, then your users are fucked. Convert with a hardcoded array structure.
  2. Most DB drivers [for PHP] will show integers as numeric strings and false as "0", so you want to typecast them.
  3. Unless you're using an ORM with "hidden" functionality, people will see passwords, salts and all sorts of fancy codes. If you add one and forget to put it in your $hidden array then OOPS!

Use the URI sparingly, and correctly

  1. Use the query string for paired params instead of /users/id/5/active/true. Your API does not need to be SEO optimised.
  2. ?format=xml is stupid, use an Accept: application/xml header. I added this to the CodeIgniter Rest Server once for lazy people, and now people think it's a thing. It's not.

View safesleep.txt
In early November, 2012, Apple issued a graphics update for all mid-2012 MacBooks. In a continued streak of stupidity, however, this update forces your Mac to use "Safe Sleep". This means that the entire contents of your RAM is written to your disk every time you put your Mac to sleep.
This is retarded on the scale of the Titanic's navigational plan for two reasons:
1) Your Mac likely has 8 or 16GB of RAM. This is a ton of wasted disk space; especially on MacBook Airs that ship with only 256GB SSDs to begin with.
2) SSDs wear out as you write to them. Each cell of a SSD can only be written to a certain number of times before it becomes read-only. If you put your computer to sleep many times a day, OS X is slowly but surely destroying your SSD with unneeded write cycles.
Worst of all, the graphics update makes it IMPOSSIBLE to turn off safe sleep using the standard approach you'll find on Google:
