Spoiler! That’s how dhtmlxGrid will look like in the version 5.0 ;)

This article’s aim is to describe the basics of Laravel usage. This framework was created for the development of web applications following the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern. One of the core features of Laravel is a modular packaging system that allows adding new components to your project. Since we’re not interesting in the creation of a simple “Hello, World!” application, we’ll use this feature to create something that looks like an actual web app. We’ll use our dhtmlxGrid component for our task.
