Laravel Packages Development

About the Book

Who is this book for?

Anyone familiar with the Laravel framework or any PHP framework can make use of this book. Ever installed PHP composer packages or want to create Laravel packages through a Test Driven approach? This book provides that.

How to use this book

I will provide all the code used in this book, but it is beneficial to code along as you go through it to get the most out.

What are we building?

We are going to build a chat package by following a test-driven approach. This package will be installed in any Laravel application and adds the ability for your Laravel models to participate in conversations with each other. For instance, a bot model can chat with a user model and a client model, and so forth. There will be fewer limitations.
