The Developer Drive blog has posted the second part of their series introducing the Laravel PHP framework. In this new tutorial they build on the basics from part one to briefly discuss controllers and the Eloquent ORM.
In the first part of this introductory mini series we looked at simple routes and views and now we'll look at how to work with controllers and models , how these two fit in the framework and how to use them.
They explain some of the basics of controllers first including a bit of sample code showing how to output a basic view and add a new route. Following that is a brief look at using the ORM and making a model - a Post - and defining the table it relates to.
