Laravel Breeze was released by Taylor Otwell and the Laravel team a few days ago:
Taylor Otwell 🛸@taylorotwellSurprise package release. When? Now! Laravel Breeze. If Jetstream overwhelmed you and you need something simpler for now. Blade + Tailwind only. Every route and controller exported directly to your application. Same beautiful Jetstream style UI. github.com/laravel/breeze 🌴🌊🌴19:57 PM - 09 Nov 2020
I was one of the very few who wasn't so tripped with Jetstream for authentication scaffolding with the release of Laravel 8. I prefer using only Larvel Fortify and then build my own UI components around it.
According to the Github docs
Breeze provides a minimal and simple starting point for building a Laravel application with authentication. Styled with Tailwind, Breeze publishes authentication controllers and views to your application that can be easily customized based on your own application's needs.
This package can be said to be a lightweight simpler version of laravel/ui but uses Tailwind instead of Bootstrap. It has no presets like React or Vue, although that is subject to change in the future.
To get started with the package:
laravel new breeze-auth cd breeze-auth
Next, we require the breeze library and run the install commands
composer require laravel/breeze --dev php artisan breeze:install npm run install npm run dev
Run the migrate command and serve up the project and we should have our application enabled with authentication.
It's that simple to use!
