Just a quick post to point out for those using Laravel 5.1 ( released today ) it is now using PSR-2 coding guidelines. It’s up to you if you want to adopt these guidelines, but an easy way to check your using them can be to tweak your IDE settings. There is a good guide on the basic settings here for PhpStorm. You can also read more about the Coding Style on the PHP Framework Interop Group page for PSR-2.
