Learning Laravel

August 10th, 2013

First impressions, Laravel is interesting. After working with it for a half-dozen hours, I can say that it seems to be simple enough. It’s structured and organized fairly well, and feels like it would work the way I want it to.

That being said, I’m trying to do a simple thing, and am spending too much time digging in the weeds.

This does not work.

So now, I’ve turned to my favourite site, StackOverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18162351/laravel-4-stock-auth-login-wont-persist-across-pages

Which Framework?

Learning a framework is an investment of time. You have to work out how this one structures its files, wants you to template, what levers to pull.

This is why people build their own so often. At least then it works the way you want it to.

composer more.json

So tonight, more fun with composer. Now that I have it set up and managed to install one package, it’s on to getting enough of Zend Framework set up to make something. Since there seems to be no core package that just installs everything, it seems I have to resort to listing the arms length of packages I expect to use.

Scratch that. Tonight I’m going to try out the ZF2 skeleton application, since I haven’t used ZF2 yet.
