Indeed. I'm sort-of learning Laravel at the moment. If you're reasonably
competent in PHP and HTML, there's still a steep learning curve. It does
a lot of stuff, but you have to work *its* way e.g. every application
requires a separate virtual server, domain name and therefore DNS (or
multiple /etc/hosts) entry. You can't just drop a directory of stuff
into /www/docroot (as I usually do) and expect it to work.
