One of the most fundamental parts of an application is authentication, good thing Laravel has already built that for you. In this tutorial, we will be showing you how to install Laravel Breeze. It is a good starting point when making a Laravel application.
Laravel is a free, open-source PHP Web Framework and intended for the development of web applications following the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architectural pattern. Laravel is designed to make developing web apps faster and easier by using built-in features.
Laravel Breeze gives you a simple and minimal implementation of login, registration, password reset, email verification, and password confirmation which are part of Laravel’s authentication features.
