Introduction

Laravel Enhancement

Enhancing Laravel is a fundamental aspect of the Streams platform. Laravel enhancement both facilitates internal core functionality and also supports developers when building their work.

Laravel Basics

The Streams platform helps you take Laravel basics further to do more with less.

Addon Packages

Streams addons are Composer packages that serve as logical containers for your application. While not required, they provide a great form of application organization and are, of course, easy to distribute just as with any other Composer package.

Data Modeling

Data modeling is a fundamental aspect of building with the Streams platform.

Domain Information

The Streams platform leans heavily on domain-driven design (DDD). We call these domain abstractions streams, hence our namesake.

An example could be configuring a domain model (a stream) for a website's pages, users of an application, or feedback submissions from a form.

Data Sources

If not configured otherwise, streams will utilize the built-in flat-file database. All databases available to Laravel are supported as well.

Domain Entities

Domain entities are called entries within the Streams platform. A stream also defines entry attributes, or fields, that dictate the entry's properties, data-casting, and more.

Managing Entities

The Streams platform separates methods to retrieve and store entries from the entry objects themselves, less a few convenient functions like save and delete, by using a repository pattern.
