Author

This class can create forms from Laravel model classes.

It takes a Laravel model class object and retrieve the object fields so it can generate a form to let the users enter values to create new objects of the model class.

The class automatically guesses the types of form inputs to create based on the field types and names.

Applications can extend the Laravel model class with the necessary information on fields to define all the details of the form to be created including relationships and validation rules.

The class can render the generated form and return the respective HTML code.

Model classes often contain metadata about the information that they store and retrieve from some database container.

This class can use metadata contained in model classes used by the Laravel framework, so it can get all the details to generate forms to store and retrieve information managed by those model classes.
