If you are going to develop a multi platform mobile application and you googled a bit probably you have met Ionic. Ionic is a complete framework based on AngularJS and Cordova to develop mobile application with a great interface and an excellent support for all the Cordova plugin like Camera and Social sharing.
In this tutorial series we are going to build a simple but complete digital goods e-shop using Laravel 5.1. The shop will sell only digital articles in a zipped file format, downloadable by the customer once the order and the payment is done. It will be something like ThemeForest or other site where you can buy files.
For this tutorial what we want to achieve is to have a file upload and download system in our Laravel 5 application using the new Storage features. The example is intentionally easy but you can easily extend the concept.
For the purpose we are going to create a database table where we store the file informations. This is needed when we download the file from the application. With the abstraction of the Storage API you can save the file where you like, locally on the local disk like in the example or Amazon S3 servers, or others.
