Me: 30 seconds.
Boss: You can't be serious.
Me: (Spinned up Laravel, entered comand - php artisan make:auth

Boss: What!

    You mean to say php is useful?

    Or is it Laravel that is useful?

    I really need to try it.
    I am too lazy.

    Well, this command can be run only at project start, and yes, you have a working auth, but still some modification to do to obtain a perfect one.
    With laravel i prefer doing manual auth, still using auth method tho

    @danharrin it’s just that I write loads of libraries myself and I couldn’t find a way of including those very easily. Next to that I don’t get how the routes work and how to easily integrate a custom login system as I’ve written an extensive one myself 😬

    @danharrin custom token length, custom validity (resets) time, Auto blocking and security-email-unblocking features, brute force protection, that included? If yes that’d be awesome.

    What about the other things I named? 😬

    @danharrin and simple requires anywhere in the code? 😅

    @danharrin php files! Because I’ve got a shitload of libraries and stuff I always use with projects

    You can do the same with .NET core and probably Java Spring.

    @sSam It really depends on what you want to achieve. Spring Security is crazy huge and can be exceptionally complicated.
    You want to do basic things, sure - easy.

    Idk how .NET handles this, but I can imagine it's pretty close to Spring.

    @Cyanide PHP is useful. What I'm trying to say is Laravel (and most of other php frameworks) makes writing php codes faster.

    Yes, you only need to run it at start project and it will create authentication pages (register, login & forget password) with basic fields. However, if you need complex (or extra fields) in your auth pages, then you need to go beyond the make auth command.

    Manual auth is necessary for complex authentication with many logical fields.

    Great. Now your boss thinks you can make any page in a minute. Prepare for hell.
