Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a basic Blade template, part of Laravel 4 Essential Training (2014).
- As I've noted a couple of times,…there are two types of templates…supported in the Laravel framework,…php and Blade.…While php works as expected,…it's pretty clunky when you start…to compare it to Blade,…and Blade is so dirt simple to use,…there's no reason to hold back.…Let me show you what I mean.…So I have opened our original view hello.php.…Now, I'm gonna change the output text slightly.…So, let me scroll down to the bottom,…and let's make this "Blade has arrived"…rather than "You have arrived."…And, I'll Save As.…
