Just another bloody kid who likes to build creative things.


I've been learning Laravel for a while now, mostly reading a ton and watching Jeffrey Way stuff (gosh that guy is helpful), and I've decided to finally dive into the official laravel community :)

A bit about myself: I'm a 20 year old kid from NYC who started out broke and learned to program, eventually made my own marketing company and became self-employed. I'm into a lot of stuff, hardstyle, raves, sunny places, building creative things and solving puzzles. I'm hoping to meet some unique individuals and become better at Laravel,

so just one small question!

Why do most Laravel users use AngularJS and not KnockoutJS? (hope I am not generalizing too much).

Would love to hear some pros and cons

IMO, there're at least two reasons.

First one is...that...Angular is just growing fast. It's not only Laravel community where people love AngularJS, but pretty much everybody these days. People want to learn new and good stuff.

Second..since AngularJS has an IoC container and uses DI just like Laravel, it would be easier for Laravelers to learn AngularJS. Not to mention that Jeffery Way or other Laravel evangelists promote AngularJS a lot.

Did not know about the IoC container tidbit, wow.

I have used Knockout previously for an ASP MVC project, would you recommend learning angular for dynamic applications with Laravel?

Picking another js framework can't hurt. I have to do this myself sooner rather later.

@mikenolimits // Yes, why not. I mean..I don't use AngularJS at work (not doing JS recently), but it's very interesting.

If you have time, these videos interested when I was learning Angular for the first time. A little bit boring, but covers a lot.

Hello,

Welcome to the world of laravel.. :)

I don't know much about Knockout.js , I use AngularJS as my first JS framework, and it's quite awesome. But if you google it you'll find plenty of comparison articles I guess.

Yup, I see a ton of stuff. I highly appreciate the warm welcome :)
