Laravel Streams is a modular content management framework for Laravel developers. It allows developers to easily create and manage custom database-agnostic content/data types, fields, and relationships and maximizes your applications integration and use of them.

Why Streams?

Streams comes with only what you want and makes it incredibly fast and easy to build up custom data structures for streamlined integration into your website or application.

The CMF is designed to be flexible, modular, performant, and extensible, allowing developers to create powerful and customized websites and applications that meet their specific needs while quickly prototyping ideas with built-in design patterns and flat-file modeling.

Before You Get Started

Streams is built first and intended for Laravel developers. This means that building something with it requires that you have somewhat familiarity with the Laravel framework.

The optional UI is consistent, user friendly, and accessible, but again, requires some coding knowledge to initially configure.

Server Requirements

To run Laravel Streams you will need to meet Laravel server requirements.
