ViewMaker Screencast Now Live for Laravel 5.2
ViewMaker is off to a good start, we already have over 100 installs. So I decided to support it with a screencast.
In part one, I go through installation and setup of ViewMaker.
It’s a lot of fun to make a screencast, but I have to say, I’m nowhere near the professional level of Laracasts. It’s a little low energy, compared to how my brain actually operates, and I sort of sound like a stroke victim…
Anyway, that’s ok, as long as the information is clear, we all have to start somewhere. I will get better at it as I continue to make videos.
Making a screencast, as raw as it is, is more fun than writing just a blog, so I will probably be doing more tutorials on screencasts than blogs in the future.
I especially want to support ViewMaker, which has a powerful set of artisan commands that will generate a lot of code for you quickly. I’m having a lot of fun with that and I think you will like it too.
In ViewMaker for Laravel part 2, I demonstrate the make:master command and the make:foundation command. The make:master command sets all the dependencies for make:foundation and the two commands can be run in under a minute, which will get you a fully working crud app, with a vue.js datagrid.
If you want to learn how to implement a vue.js datagrid with searchable, sortable, and paginated rows, use ViewMaker to create a foundation, then look at the underlying code. I demonstrate this in part 2:
I’m hoping the screen cast helps people learn the ViewMaker commands quickly. I will be doing videos for all the commands in the next few weeks. I also have a tutorial on the Github page, which has very thorough documentation.
I hope you find ViewMaker useful. I don’t have a donate button, but If you would like to support my work and learn more about Laravel, you can do so by buying one of my books, Laraboot: laravel 5.2 For Beginners, I really appreciate it.
