Laravel Integration

Integration of the Laravel Framework

Starting with v1.5.8, Zen Cart leverages several aspects of the features that the Laravel Framework offers.

Initially this includes the Eloquent database ORM which provides a fluent interface for building SQL queries based on models of Zen Cart’s database tables.

We also take advantage of the bootstrapping code Laravel contains.
