With the recent release of sneak peek video’s for Laravel 4 there’s been a lot of talk about it lately. It’s still pre-beta and as such there’s very little documentation, but I know a lot of people are excited and would at least like to kick the tires. I’m not an expert myself, but I’ve put together a little quick start guide so you can at least get it installed and be aware of a few important changes from Laravel 3 which should let you build a basic application in just a few minutes.
Even though this guide gets you started please note:
Note that any and all of this may change! This is written on November 12th, 2012 based on a pre-beta version. Laravel 4 is not currently supported by Taylor or on the forums. Use this at your own risk.
