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.
Auth::attempt() is supposed to authenticate a user and then store a successful auth in your session.
This does not work.
