The SitePoint PHP blog has kicked off a new series about using the Laravel framework to create a basic CRUD application relatively easily.
In this tutorial, we’re going to build and run a simple CRUD application from scratch using Laravel 5.
The target audience for the tutorial are those completely new to the world of Laravel so they start at the beginning. He walks you through the creation of a new Laravel project and the database setup and configuration. He goes through the creation of "resourceful routing" and using the Laravel "artisan" command line tool to generate the matching controller. From there he talks about views and Blade templating followed by the creation and execution of the needed database migrations. The tutorial wraps up with a look at the model system included with Laravel and how they fit in with the Eloquent ORM.
