This package adds a simple CMS-like page system to Laravel Spark. It allows developers and non-technical users to add and edit pages (articles, blog posts, FAQ's etc.) very quickly and without the need for a deployment.
We have purposely chosen not to overcomplicate this add-on. If your product is successful and you end up needing more bells and whistles you may want to look into building your own solution. This is meant as a minimally viable solution that can be used until the product is worth investing more resources into.
Note that this package is under active development. Feel free to open an issue and/or submit a pull request if you see anything amiss.
