The try/catch isn't the worst idea either...

meath left a reply on Upgrading A Messy 4.2 App To 5.4

@ohffs Thanks for your response; I understand what you're saying about migrating the code into the new app; but it is so bad... it is so difficult and time-consuming to grok the current code nevermind making a necessary change!

I am not an Angular expert, but I suspect that it also follows a similar pattern as the Laravel code.

Maybe I should find new work...

meath started a new conversation Upgrading A Messy 4.2 App To 5.4

I have inherited a very messy Laravel 4.2 / Angular app - it has an inconsistent, sometimes surprising API; there are no tests; controller are fat and full of procedural code; models are being used more like repositories with special-purpose queries, and none of Eloquent's features are being utilised.

My preference is to do a complete rewrite to 5.4 and not copy a single line of the 4.2 app code into the new app, but I will need to continue to support and maintain the 4.2 app until end of life. My fear is that the current 4.2 app will fall out of step with the developing 5.4 version.

Does anyone here have any similar experience and thoughts they can share?
