We’ve covered Laravel Shift before and it’s a commercial project that will take a Laravel app and automatically upgrade it or shift it to the next version. This site was running Laravel 5.2 and now that 5.3 is released it was time to upgrade and I decided to give Laravel Shift a try.
The setup is easy. You signup using oAuth of where your repository is hosted. Enter your repository details, and make payment.
Within a few minutes, Laravel Shift automatically creates a pull request complete with all the changes needed and a list of notes that you need to go through to complete the upgrade.
By using this service it will drastically reduce the time it takes to upgrade your app and I’m amazed at how well it works. If you are dreading upgrading or short on time, give Laravel Shift a try. You will not be disappointed.
