First of all, thanks for your time & efforts to try out Invoice Ninja v5. I’d also love to give my opinion on this resolving each reply.
Yes, behaviour is exactly the same for me, no issue using default invoice ninja logo, once you update company details with logo them image does not display but alt tag value does.
Well, the invoices I posted here are not using the “fallback” logo, it’s the real logo that I uploaded. However, it appears that I used the same one as the default, here is a new screenshot:
Also note that my .env is very spartan compared to .env.example and their was no entry for QUEUE_CONNECTION…could this have an impact?
This is a bug with the v5 setup that is fixed in the latest code, we should ship a new version within a few days. Nonetheless, it should default to “database”, so you should be good to go.
Thank you for your honest opinion, however some stuff you said, just isn’t true.
In the e-mail, we sent to our subscribers, I believe there’s a note, this is RC/prerelease version, so it’s not “fully” stable.
We used Flutter on the frontend because most people will be learning it nowadays & it is the future for app development for sure, plus it makes our lives easier to maintain, code & deploy new features cross-platform.
My only criticism is too many frameworks/plugins being used and you’ve dive too much into the technology and forgotten about the basics plus the KISS theory.
Also note, that we had about 8 attempt trying to standup a Redhat version of v5 and then gave up, had 2 more goes with Debian 10 and finally got a working environment.
I agree that server configuring could be hard, that’s unfortunately how it is, but Invoice Ninja is just a PHP app using LAMP stack like thousands of others. We don’t require anything special, so you can possibly make use of some 3rd party tools like Laravel Forge, Ploi.io, or DigitalOcean services for autoinstallation & autoconfiguration of the server. If you opt-in for installing & configuring the server yourself, even then you’re not on your own, cause you can ask here or on Slack for help & we will assist you - which is, let’s be honest WAY over the scope of Invoice NInja application development.
Thanks once again for the honest opinion & hope to see you again here!
