Join Drew Falkman for an in-depth discussion in this video Laravel app walkthrough, part of MVC Frameworks for Building PHP Web Applications (2015).
Now that Laravel's been set up in your…development environment, let's take a look…at what all is in there, and how we can start…building our app in this framework.…The first thing I'm going to do is, I'm going…to go to my text editor, and I'm going to open…the location where I installed it.…I installed it in the Sandbox…directory in my documents.…Yours will likely be somewhere else.…You can go ahead and open the root folder,…so we can see everything that's there,…and you can see there's a lot of things,…like the server.php, composer.json,…that are really just part of the Laravel installation.…
The app directory is where the meat of your…application lies, and we'll look in here a bit later.…Bootstrap is a directory that contains a few…files that bootstrap the framework…and configure autoloading.…The public directory contains the front controller…as well as your assets, and the vendor directory…contains your composer dependencies.…You can see there are a number…of other different classes here.…If you remember, Laravel uses a lot of things…

Q: When setting up Composer on my Windows machine, I'm asked to specify where php.exe is located. Where can I find it?
Q: Why doesn't my folder structure in Laravel match what's on screen?
A: Version 5 of Laravel was released after the recording of this course. The core information in this course is still valid, but the Laravel's main files have been reorganized. For more details on how this reorganization has changed the structure of Laravel files, please see https://mattstauffer.co/
Q: Why isn't mcrypt prepped for PHP when I run the phpize command?
A: If you're having trouble setting up mcrypt, you may need to change the directory from which you run the phpize command. You'll want to navigate to the /ext/mcrypt/ folder within the folder for the version of PHP that you're running.
