Have you tried Wink?

January 14, 2019 by trevor

Hello and welcome to our very first blog post, and yes you guessed it, we are using Wink and loving it. Wink is the latest project from Mohamed Said. It’s an excellent alternative to a solution like Medium, but you are in control. It’s a self-hosted solution, so you keep owning your content. It’s built on top of the very popular laravel.com framework, which makes it very easy to integrate into pre-existing Laravel sites. No need to spin up your own post CRUD.

It’s still very earlier on, but it looks like it’s going to be an awesome tool. You can check out Laravel’s own blog built in it.

Setup is pretty straight forward if you are familiar with the Laravel installation process. We were able to get everything set up in under 5 minutes. Diving deeper and making your own layouts might be a little more challenging but seems like it’s coming. Explore the vendor folder and explore how Wink is constructed!
