Replied to Architectural Advice On Re-usability

Sorry it wasn't clear what I meant. Hopefully I can explain it better below.

I now have a Laravel Application where everything is running. But we want to reuse the basis (such as a subscription management part, rights and permissions, user management, etc.) as well as certain functionalities such as managing events, inviting members to events, and the like.

I am mainly concerned with the strategy to make reusable parts from a Laravel application. I have read a bit about micro-services or is it more sensible to divide all functionality into Laravel packages, for example.

Does that clarify it with regard to the background of the question?

Started a new Conversation Architectural Advice On Re-usability

I have a platform that I would like to know your opinion about.

Suppose you have a current Laravel platform in which we use Laravel as API and the front works as a VueJs SPA, we use Laravel Sanctum for authentication.

The platform has a whole list of functionalities such as managing users and managing the members of organizations of users of the platform, the organization can also plan events in the platform and we have a payment street in which members of an organization have a wallet. available and can pay promotions from.

From the point of view that we have a solid foundation ( a sort like Laravel Spark is intended for), and we may also want to develop new SaaS applications. What is your advice in the strategy to be followed to make the current functionality reusable? What would you do?

Started a new Conversation Any Advice On Testing Traits

We have a challenge, we use a number of traits in our code that we use in several places.

We have created a generic livewire wizard component in which we use a HasSurveyQuestions trait, but that immediately presents the challenge, are you going to test the trait in every wizard you create? Or would you only test the trait because that trait is generic and it actually doesn't matter where you apply it.

What would you recommend?
