Initially created as a personal blogging platform alternative to WordPress, Medium, and Tumblr, Canvas quickly gained community support and backing to become a full-blown FOSS project.

Covered by an comprehensive suite of unit and integration tests, Canvas gives its users the essential tools they need to create and publish a blog with minimal setup time. It's look and feel out of the box is clean and unobtrusive, letting the content be the focal point of the site. Updates, features, and bug fixes are always in the works along with documentation that continually grows and improves with each new release.

No 2 The Process

The release of v2.0.0 was the greatest boost to the project's adoption rate in the community. The release story trended on Laravel News for quite a while as the GitHub star and download count surged.

One of the most important aspects of developing Canvas has been the integration of TravisCI to ensure that only fully-tested, working releases of the project are made available to the public. Following true software development practices, the project adheres to SemVer 2.0.0 for consistency and structure. In addition to the core Laravel package, Canvas now has an organized ecosystem of tools and documentation that help developers understand more about the application.

“For my first look at Canvas, I’m really impressed with the appearance of the admin. The installation is really straightforward, especially if you are comfortable with Laravel. If you are looking to start a blog this year, Canvas would be a good choice.”
