Volur -- Making a Forum with Laravel

    This isn't necessarily for the new Cloud Sixteen Community forums (it's probably best to choose something that already exists and is maintained by a large group of people), but it's a good experience and opportunity to learn how the cool kids are making web applications these days. Back in my day it was easy but now you've got all these trendy frameworks and terminologies that seem as though web developers said, "hey, there's too many web developers and now our jobs are at risk, I know, we'll deliberately make everything more complicated than it needs to be so newcomers can't keep up!"

    Well fuck that. I spent about 8 hours last night until 6am this morning starting my quest to learn Laravel (a popular PHP framework). In doing so I aim to create a simple, modern forum application, Volur (working title.)

    All I've managed to achieve so far is the ability to install the application, and then register or login to the forum. My next goal will be a basic administrative dashboard for the creation of categories, and then allow registered users to post threads or comment replies.

    You can find the GitHub page over at http://kurozael.github.io/volur, although the repository is currently private while it's in its baby stages.

    Decided to implement a module system for extensions/plugins, it's all working pretty well actually (from an architectural point of view, there's no frontend to manage them yet) and using a similar system I plan to add basic theme support tomorrow. I figure once I've got those out the way I can just have everything be an extension for full customization.

    It's been a pleasure for me to work with laravel. A while ago, before I was seriously into web applications, @alexanderk helped me out with it. I found it so confusing at first, and I still find some parts of it confusing (where my experience is to blame), but I'm working on something similar to WHMCS right now for my first big project.

    Good luck with the forum.

    If you're looking for a simplistic forum framework, try Kunena Forum a plugin for Joomla. It's pretty neat.

    My suggestion for you is to use MyBB and modify it. There's bunch of websites whom using heavily modified MyBB for their community. It's pretty easy to make a simple one but hard to make a detailed version.
