Laravel Zero – Micro-framework for console applications

Laravel Zero is a lightweight and modular micro-framework for developing fast and powerful console applications. Built on top of the Laravel components.

Think of it as a stripped down Laravel, without the public folder.

Recently used it to create a Command that runs in Docker Container upon boot and then exits. Instead of using Laravel’s built-in Task Scheduling, we manage the scheduling through a Kubernetes CronJob,. That way we can use Laravel, but don’t need to keep the container up to handle 24/7. Keeping it up would be useless, as the job only runs once per day and there’s no website to serve.
