I picked up #Laravel & Lumen the last 3 weeks for a new project... and I don’t think I’ve ever been this productive in my life. Super excited with what I’m building right now... most exciting PHP project in a long time. \o/
I saw a cartoon avatar generator with an API a while back and I can’t find it again, it allowed you to create a cartoon person that looked like yourself, similar style to this, but again, API: https://getavataaars.com
I've tried several times to get on the Laravel train, and have failed miserably each time, getting frustrated before I could get productive. However, the last couple of days I've been using Lumen to build an API, and it's the *perfect* backdoor for my brain to just pick up what it needs as I go along, rather than needing to front-load a bunch of Laravel conventions up front.
I choose Lumen knowing that I may need to expand this project beyond the API later; happy with my choice so far!
