Last time I updated you guys on this, I only had a list of ideas and how it would initially pan out. I have now started the project and published the repo onto GitHub.
If you're looking forward to what Laravel 5.3 has to offer then I would definitely recommend that you watch this video of Taylor Otwell which goes into detail on what the latest version has to offer. It is pretty long at 1 hour and 36 minutes, but my gosh is it worth it.

I have started using Laravel's View Composers which come in handy when you have a navigation bar that constantly needs certain data.
