After years of working with Laravel and this CMS, I finally got myself to built a few projects using the whole framework, not just the frontend aspect. The first was this very website (ivan.best) and the second was this portfolio-type site for the lovely Denitsa Petrova.
This all started when I decided to update my personal portfolio originally built with Grav. Wanting to skip the limitations (and complications) that come with Grav, I decided to switch to something familiar and more powerful. Introducing - Laravel, the framework that powers the CMS used here.
