If you want any references to Api to resolve to DuedilApiClient then you need to bind it that way--bind Marketing\Duedil\Api to Marketing\Duedil\DuedilApiClient, then only ever resolve out of the IOC.

@lstables you are trying to instantiate Api and you should be instantiating DuedilApiClient

@lihaibh If you do what you just said, and squash the commits, Git should see them as moved rather than deleted and re-added. They have for me. Try it out and see what happens. :)

@lihaib No. Git will not do the work for you.

That's why I said: You need to read the directions in the post, where it step-by-step tells you where to move them.

So, in your example, look here, where it tells you to move all code in app/database into database.

@lihaibh Sorry, I didn't get notified about your response!

If you take a little closer look at the blog post, it actually recommends you move your old files in the new locations--and it gives you specific directions on which of the new migrations you should keep around.

For example, you will be moving all of your files from app/database/migrations into the new database/migrations, and probably deleting one or more of the new migration files.

I hope this helps!

There's one step you can simplify: You can clone the Laravel 5 files directly into your empty folder right after step 3 of @AoSiX's process. I walked through it here:

http://mattstauffer.co/blog/upgrading-from-laravel-4-to-laravel-5

I got the tip originally from someone on Twitter, but can't find the link at the moment.

git remote add laravel https://github.com/laravel/laravel.git
git fetch laravel
git merge laravel/develop --squash

@JeffreyWay, I think the main thing I would wonder from you is, did you find any changes to any of the component APIs? For example, $pagination links changing to render.. but I also saw that you DI a Cache instance a little differently now. Did you find any other ways you had to change your code?
