Today I was exploring the newly released Laravel 8 framework and found the fresh composer package that Laravel developed for authentication view scaffolding.
I was initially a little concerned about the move away from React & Vue, but I decided to give it a try anyway.
I was very happily surprised that Jetstream looks like a wonderful improvement for the Laravel framework.
Here are some awesome features that come with Jetstream, for free, right out of the box:
Jetstream even comes with profile images out of the box!
One thing that I am still unsure about is Inertia.js. For my apps, I want to separate the backend from the views to be able to have an API for the backend that all my frontend applications use. *mobile and web.
It looks like with the Jetstream approach, I will still be needing to have to build some of the routes separately for the API, but we will see.
Other than that, I really like Jetstream. Good work, Laravel Team!
Here is a video overview of the installation and Jetstream dashboard:
