Coiwnink V2

In this repository, you will find the source code of the Coinwink app version 2, which is built using Laravel and Vue.js.

The previous V1 version of Coinwink was developed using WordPress and jQuery, and it was live from 2016 to 2022. You can find the first version archived under the Releases section. While the Coinwink V1 was optimized and fast, it was difficult to maintain and develop new features. As a result, the app was migrated to Laravel and Vue.js to improve maintainability and the speed of development.

The new Coinwink V2 includes some code from the V1 that was retained for its optimization and has been transferred unchanged from the previous framework to the new one. However, the overall architecture of the app is now based on Laravel for the backend and Vue.js for the frontend, which allows for easier maintenance and development of new features.

  • For hot reload, run the npm run watch command.

More info

To create a new user, first update the .env file with your mail server credentials, and then use the user sign up form.

To use all app's features, you need to upgrade your user to Premium by manually editing the database. First, open the cw_settings table and edit your user: set subs column to 1, and enter any amount of SMS credits in the sms column. Then create a new record in the cw_subs table with your user id, set status column to active and plan column to premium.

To get new market price data from CoinMarketCap (for alerts, portfolio, and watchlist), register for the Free CMC API plan, and then update the coinwink_auth_cmc.php file with your credentials. To fetch new data from CMC, run cron_data_cmc.php script.

To trigger and send crypto alerts by email, SMS, and Telegram, run the following scripts:

  • cron_alerts_email_cur.php - Email price alerts
  • cron_alerts_email_per.php - Email percentage alerts

For currency rates conversion, two services are utilized. For more info, see the cron_data_cur_rates.php file.

/img/coins folder is for cryptocurrency logos. Our script to update/fetch new logos can be found here.

To migrate from WordPress users, the mikemclin/laravel-wp-password tool is being used. When an old WordPress user tries to log in, the user is automatically moved to Laravel's authentication system by adding the user to the database users table with the user's password rehashed for Laravel.

The database migrations were generated from the existing database with the help of the kitloong/laravel-migrations-generator tool.
