Over the last few months I’ve been working on a very practical github project – a boilerplate for laravel, useful for API projects. The idea here is as I say, to re-image laravel as a framework built for developing APIs.
The main goal is to make API development significantly quicker and easier, and dramatically minimise the amount of code required to get going, in building API components.
In the last few months I’ve done presentations on it at Sydney’s Laravel and PHP meetups, and it’s just starting to get some traction. If you work with APIs, or would like to – I would encourage you to check it out. It is very easy to get started with – in fact that is on of the goals 🙂
