Adonis JS: Using Laravel Mix function
I come from a Laravel background, so when I started developing a project in Adonis JS I was missing their most useful frontend tool: Laravel Mix
What I missed was the useful
mix function, with this function you can use a hashed version of your assets because, you know, if you are always serving assets from the server with the same filename, the browser will serve the old version that it has stored, this could increase the speed of your site, but you will need to always serve the last version of your assets. To avoid this, developers can add a hash or create a function from scratch, but if Laravel has the function, why not use the same logic in Adonis JS?
The goal is to create a global function for the views. We can add it in
Then, restart your AdonisJS server and you can use it in your views in two different ways, using AdonisJS functions or Html.
