How to install Laravel 8 without Livewire / Inertia / jetpack , but with the Old Laravel/UI
Laravel 8 came up with some new features, that for some might require additional learning curve. Specially talking about - livewire / intertia / jetpack. Livewire/ Inertia are mainly in hand when you are working with Vue, and jetpack`s main purpose is to deal with blade easily.
However, we can still install the old laravel/ui package, that was introduced in laravel 7, and here is how to do it:
Lets assume we have a new laravel 8 installation via composer:
laravel new myprojectname
After that, simply install laravel/ui package:
composer require laravel/ui
And after its installed, type:
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
Thats everything you have to do.
