Just wanted to share these two simple things I’ve recently found for Laravel 5.3
1. Repository Generator
This packages just removed about half a day of setting up the backend CRUD per. Model / Entity. A few commands, follow the instructions and then boom, you’ve got a fully functional repository class.
Sure, I’d need to write my on Tests around it performing as “expected”, however, I now have a basic Interface and Abstract which I can use across different Models.
2. Laravel Collective “Custom Components”
Laravel Collective packages have been staple Laravel components for a while now, however I’ve never quite got to down all the docs (just whizzed on with the bits I need).
I’ve found the Custom Components part method. Before I’ve been creating a new “HTML Components” service class and linking up blade template files with that, however, now I can just keep it within the HTML Facade without any trouble. Much cleaner!
