Together with Marcel Pociot and our colleagues at Beyond Code and Spatie, I'm currently building Flare, a paid service which will be revealed at Laracon EU. Together with the service we'll release a package that will change the way you will work with Laravel. To stay in the loop subscribe to our mailinglist at

Are you sure you need entrust or laravel-permission to implement your authorization?

Some solid advice from Adel Faiz: do not use a package for authorization unless you really need its functionalities. Laravel's default authorization capabilities are good enough for most use cases.

I don't want to say these packages are useless. They can be useful for projects which needs complicated authorization system, which should be customizable by customer later. Also some projects need dynamic permissions. For all other projects it's too heavy solution. Better to use simple code-based authorization.

Follow me on Twitter. I regularly tweet out programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every two weeks I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
