Trying out Laravel Spark as a SaaS front end

Laravel Spark is an early alpha project from the creator of Laravel, Taylor Otwell.

Spark is designed to be like a pre-built web application with user authentication, subscription plans, Coupons, Teams and Roles.

These are the kinds of things that are in a typical web based application and by using Spark, a developer can save a lot of time and energy by not reinventing the wheel in implementing these features in a new development project and focusing instead on the important stuff.

This sounds like an ideal use case for the projects I am developing as I don’t want to have to redevelop or even copy/paste these facilities for each project.

I tried it out earlier today on an Ubuntu VM, however I couldn’t get it going. I received an error which others seem to have run in to too and have opened an issue on Github.

I’m putting this on hold for now, despite being a beta product and this particular error, I still think its a useful tool to use so I’ll wait a few days to see if the Issue is closed on Github and try again then.
