At work, we’re moving our application from Zend Framework to Laravel. I don’t have much experience with Laravel so I’ve been working my way through Laravel 5.7 From Scratch . I’ve been amazed at how easy it is to work with Laravel but I’m overwhelmed by Artisan’s list of available commands. My goal over the next several weeks is to look at each command and determine why it’s there and when the command should be used. Mostly due to my own self interested but hopefully others will find it helpful.
I will be working my way through the default set of commands from Laravel 6.1.0 but I’m going to circle back and add more entries as things are added/removed. The order is mostly going to be based on what I’m interested in and what I’m working with the most during my day job.
