What do you think about AdonisJS? https://adonisjs.com/ Inspired from Laravel. Built on top of NodeJS.

It looks good; however, I haven't used it yet.

People say Laravel shouldn't be used for enterprise/large apps, instead they suggest frameworks like .net and spring/ee. What do you think about this? How would you approach making an enterprise/large laravel app? Thanks for Laravel!

A proficient developer can build large applications using Laravel. I don't think there is anything in Laravel that is holding you back from building these types of applications. In fact, features such as the container, queue, broadcasting are great for enterprise applications.

I have lots of ideas for side projects, open source etc, but often get distracted by a new idea rather than staying focused on 1 project. Any tips for staying focused.

I think you just have to find that one special project that captures your attention permanently. They are hard to find IMO.

If you could easily add or change 3 features of Laravel with the wave of a magic wand. What would they be ?

Hmm, the only thing I can think of is that I wish Closures were more easily serializable in PHP. Most Laravel features I am pretty happy with overall.
