Laravel Episode 1: Starting A New Project
My first time streaming on livecoding.tv. I wanted to share with people how I use the Laravel framework. I decided to create a fictious project and call it Storedemo. It’s pretty much a demo of an online store. I chose this because it will provide different case studies. Being my first time, I ran into some technical difficulties. Fortunately, a support staff joined the room and was able to provide assistance. I had to cut the stream. That’s why you’ll see two episodes/videos. Below are the links where you can watch them. Hopefully in the future I can embed them.
Here is a summary of what I discussed in the videos.
- Why am I doing this?
- To give an example of how someone develops in Laravel.
- Help give a direction to newcomers of the framework.
- Not meant to be a “best practice” or “this is how you should…”
- OS X Version
- PHP Mcrypt
- Describe the directory structure
- Laravel 5.1.x LTS
- Sublime Text 3
- Sequel Pro
