Hi Taylor, thank you for your time.
I have a couple of questions here, hope that you can answer it.
What do you use to develop Laravel? Are you still using Sublime Text? If so, can you share your plugins/template/configuration?
What is the next awesome feature that you're going to implement in Laravel?
What do you think of AdonisJS http://adonisjs.com/ (NodeJS Framework inspired by Laravel)?
With what you gain from Envoyer and Forge did you work full time on Laravel?
Being a creator of such a successful framework means commitment to the language it's written for. Given how innovative you are, have you ever been tempted to jump on another language, like Ruby, but you knew you couldn't because of Laravel?
What do you think about the opinion that PHP is historically one of the worst languages?
p.s. love Laravel, thank you very much for making our lives easier.
- What are your thoughts on Docker? Would you consider moving the Homestead experience™ from Vagrant to docker?
- In a the last 12 to 18 months a lot of "big" functionality was added to Laravel. Things like the cloud filesystem and ACL. Are you considering adding more big chuncks of functionality like that?
When starting to plan out a new project do you use any tools to help you map out the structure? Or is it scribbled on paper/all planned mentally. I often start a project and think I have it planned out then have to keep making changes to my plans because I've overlooked something. Can you offer any tips to avoid this?
Your project is amazing, and so is your attention to detail. Thank you for all your hard work.
I have no serious questions, so how about a less than serious one: When using your now famous block comments style of "3 characters less than the previous line", do you sit with thesaurus.com open trying to find words that fill the space correctly?
Hi Taylor, glad to see you here. How did you manage to build such a huge framework on your own? I've seen a few videos of yours where you mentioned you made early Laravel version for a personal project while you were in working full-time somewhere else(if I recall correctly). What are the problems you faced while developing Laravel regarding coding practices as Laravel has most cleanest code including well formatted comments. Any tips, resources or suggestions for newbie programmers like me who are mostly dependent on tutorials from Jeffrey Way and StackOverflow.
I've asked this on twitter before but had no answer. Laravel always creates Carbon instances directly, not through service container, which makes it harder for us, developers from non-English speaking countries, to use localized carbon or jenssegers/date. Is there something that stops you from changing this?
Love your work !
What's your personal opinion about CQRS in a big (or medium ~1year dev) project involving 3-4 developper ?
Do you think it's too overwhelming for at the end just some use cases.
Maibe not so much a bad idea because we have to separate "concernes" at some point but there are many other approche less overwhelming.
Hi Taylor, thank you for your Framework.
I have 1 question. We are a business running Production App on top of Laravel. Without Laravel, it would have taken us 3x more developers with 3x more headaches. Thanks for making our lives easier. There were many instances when laravel saved our lives. In Enterprise B2B it really helps to have a reliable framework. When we show the server-response times to our clients, it closes the deal faster. There was no question, just wanted you to read it. Thanks.
Hi Taylor, thanks for your time, and for the awesome work you do ! Where did the idea to create Lumen as an alternative to Laravel came from ? Don't you think most of the modern Frameworks should do the same and propose in the same time more light and "toolbox-like" framework like this ?
I am thinking of Angular, which is becoming way to overloaded nowadays, and will push you to use Frameworks like Backbone more for example.
Thanks a lot !
Would like to know, is there any ideas about creating some chunked responses from backend to front like it's in Play framework? Basically allowing serve data as soon as possible for a user without waiting for all functions to finish.
P.S. Yes, there are solutions do it from a front end and request chunks from there, however, I'm just curious if in laravel plans is something like that as it's in PlayFramework.
I read that you're using Trello and Wunderlist to organize your project. I created a SaaS called Workstack (workstack.io) built with Laravel 5.2 that I hope you'd like to try. If you want, consider a free lifetime subscription already yours! :) Since I used the latest version of Laravel and Cashier, how difficult do you think it will be for me to use Spark on it, on a scale from 1 to 10? I'm crossing my fingers really hard in the wait for the magic moment of the Spark release! :)
Thanks again for all your hard work and never stop to amaze us with great tools like Envoyer, Forge and Spark!
