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.
