LaSalle Software is my free and open source web application to help Laravel developers build custom websites, web applications, and serverless functions by integrating Laravel's Framework, Nova, and Dusk with commonly needed features.
Hi! My name is Bob Bloom (on the right!).
I develop web apps using the superb Laravel Framework.
Laravel is the web app framework, not the app itself. I need an integrated base app for my projects.
So I built it, based on the superb Laravel Framework.
I call it LaSalle Software!
Laravel's Nova for the administrative back-end.
Login-able users and non-login-able people.
Head-start built-in "profiles" database.
Multiple independent front-end apps administered by a single independent administrative back-end app.
Back-end authentication based on the OAuth client credentials grant, using JWT.
Three authorization levels in the back-end app, using native Laravel Policies.
Blog -- because I need a blog for myself!

LaSalle Software Version Two's initial release is done.The first thing I did with my initial release was to install two front-end domains, and to install the common admin domain.
