You can make your code more readable by moving all your exception messages to dedicated classes. We using this technique in all our projects and packages.
Out of the box, Laravel comes with the ability to generate "signed" URLs. These URLs have a hash in their query string that verifies that the URL was not modified.
At Flare, we use these signed URLs to add action links in mail notifications. The action links allow users to snooze and resolve errors right from the mail without having to be logged in. Pretty convenient!
My buddy Dries Vints noticed a slight drawback. He got a mail from Flare that contains these action links. A few hours after the mail arrived, he clicked one of the action links. This is what he saw.
Laravel's awesome closure based routing was probably one of the first features I fell in love with. I take it for granted now, but back in the days, such a simple way of adding a route felt like a glass of water in hell compared to the other frameworks.
Typically, you would only add routes that are necessary for the users of your app. Something that I have been doing for a long time is to create a routes file, called
dev.php, with routes that can help with app development.
PHP is a fantastic language that has seen many cool improvements over the past few years. What you may not be aware of is that only a very few people can work on the language itself. This is obviously not healthy and hopefully this situation will improve in the future.

All models are wrong but simple models are more wrong than complex ones. Simple models are more appealing, easier to teach and spread and apply. Because of that, they can bring value faster, and they can cause harm faster.
