Creating Beautiful Web Apps with Laravel 5.1


Creating Beautiful Web Apps with Laravel 5.1 by Chuck Heintzelman

This book has a different tone than my previous book. No lame attempts to be funny. (I
guess we all can’t be Dayle Rees.)
Laravel 5.1 Beauty goes through the process of creating, designing and coding a realworld application while focusing on the the architecture that makes Laravel the number one PHP framework available today.

What is the Application?
Throughout this book we’ll build a simple, clean and beautiful blogging application along with the administration required to maintain the blog.
My own Laravel blog, LaravelCoding.com, uses the same blogging application developed here.
Conventions Used This Book There are a few conventions used throughout this book.
Code is indented two spaces The standard indentation for PHP code is 4 spaces. Since this book is available in a
variety of eBook formats and some devices with small screens don’t have much horizontal space, code within this book is indented 2 spaces instead of 4 to save space.

for ($i = 1; $i <= 10; $i++) {
echo “I can count to $i\n”;
Lines that end with backslash (\) should be continued If you see any line ending with a backslash, that means the code should continue uninterrupted with text from the next line.
$ here_is_a_really_really_long_command that_has_a_long list of_arguments\
which should continue In the above line, even though two lines are shown you should type in everything, excluding the backlash into one line.
Be Careful of This One When you’re typing code and miss this it can cause an issue. When in doubt check the GitHub
