A simple way of authenticating your RESTful APIs with API keys using Laravel 4
Since I have been having issues, I rolled back the app to a point before I tried anything with api-guard. Now I am trying to get api-guard working in a test app first so I created a fresh install of Laravel 5 and modified the users migration to mirror the app I am trying to add api-guard into. I followed the README religiously and reached the "Generating your first API key" section without issue. However, when I run php artisan api-key:generate --user-id=1, i get "[Error Exception]: Trying to get property of non-object." How should I continue?
I can run php artisan api-key:generate and it successfully created a record in my api_keys table (of course, the user_id field is 0)
Can yoi post the whole error?
api [master] php artisan api-key:generate --user-id=1
[ErrorException] Trying to get property of non-object
☁ api [master]
Not much there, I'm afraid
@chrisbjr, can I suggest that you remove the '4' from your description 'A simple way of authenticating your RESTful APIs with API keys using Laravel 4' since your package now services Laravel 5 as well and the 'Laravel 4' may deter adoption by users stumbling on your package via a search engine?
Does this package allow for cross domain access to the API? I want to connect to my api.maindomain.com from www.maindomain.com or any other domain for that matter.
hi @jongravois will definitely remove "Laravel 4" and use "5" instead.

hi @CSWilson it works cross domain - that is the intention
Hello, I am using the latest version for L4.2 and I can't seem to be able to access the user instance. I can't use ApiKey::user() statically because it's not static. What am I doing wrong?
To be clear I try to access it in a method in a controller which extends ApiGuardController.
Btw I also had the same problem as jongravois from above. I didn't find a solution for that either.
@chrisbjr, beside the issue of being unable to generate user keys from Artisan, I am wondering if your package can be used with the new Lumen.
I believe Lumen is a deliberately stripped down version of Laravel and does not support packages as Laravel does. So while not being the person responsible to answer this, my guess is no.
@Sotiris-k, since Lumen is the Laravel 'go-to' for quick APIs (like Node.js), that is unfortunate. Api-guard would be a perfect complement for Lumen.
@Sotiris-k are you using v1.0? if so, you can easily access your user object using
$user = $this->apiKey->user; inside your ApiGuardController
just heard about lumen as well and wondered about making packages for it
will look into it
I am git-stupid so if I want to get pull #42, can I just do a composer update?

@jongravois PR was merged.
tag was 2.1.1 so composer update would do
Hi, I was using ApiGuard in L5 it was working, but not any more. Its not throwing error if i dont pass any key, I have checked the documentation. Couldn't figure out. Any Help?
hi @khanna91 did you override the __construct() method of your controller?
@khanna91 if you did override it, make sure to include parent::__construct();
@chrisbjr : thanks...it worked
Api Guard is working perfectly fine for my get request but its throwing error in post request? anyone can help?
Its sorted now, it was my oversight. API guard was working smoothly.
Hi All, I am having an error "Call to a member function withCollection() on null" .

@ruelluna uhm, code?
@awkwardusername this is when I call return $this->response->withCollection($users, new UserTransformer());.. Dug in and it seemed to be that the EllipseSynergie Response Class isn't automcatically called so it throws a on null on withCollection method.. Solved it by using that class, injecting through the constructor and assigning $this->response = $response;

@grcasanova what's up.
Hello could someone please tell me if this package supports 5.1?
Nevermind, I realised I was pulling down the wrong version
Everything is working just great until I tried to do a post/put request on an action extending ApiGuardController, the token is set and valid as it works with the "get" request, but I get the following Laravel error with post/put:
How can I solve this?
done it :D
sorry to jump in here, but I was wondering if there is a middleware version of this plugin. I just thought that extending a controller for auth is what we did in laravel 4 but in 5 it got moved to middleware
hi , i have a big problem, when i make a post request a get a problem with the tokenMismAtchException but when in remove VerifyCrsfToken in kernel , it is ok but i know that this is not a good idea
how can i fix this pls?
On laravel 4.2, I'm getting: Class 'Chrisbjr\ApiGuard\ApiGuardController' not found when I have 'use Chrisbjr\ApiGuard\ApiGuardController;' in my controller.
@chrisbjr any ideas?
and the line has been added to the app.php
Fixed it. Your documentation is incorrect. The line should be: "use Chrisbjr\ApiGuard\Controllers\ApiGuardController;"
