Jeff Madsen has started a new initiative to help show examples with Eloquent:
Eloquent by Example aims to be an open-source, community-driven set of working example code for every type of Eloquent ORM functionality. There will be migrations and seed generators for all examples, so that we can build up a common repository with the same data and code for everyone. With enough help we can make this a very complete set of code, turning it into a “shared laboratory” that I think will be a very helpful tool for explaining over IRC how to set up or understand a problem, or as a quick way to get a tutorial started. It also gives people a common place to share Eloquent techniques.
I think this is a cool idea and could be very beneficial to the community.
