🧐 Introduction

I have been developing a Nex-Gen Torrent Tracker Software called "UNIT3D." This is a PHP software based on the lovely Laravel Framework -- currently Laravel Framework 8, MySQL Strict Mode Compliant, and PHP 8.0 Ready. The code is well-designed and follows the PSR-2 coding style. It uses an MVC Architecture to ensure clarity between logic and presentation. As a hashing algorithm of Bcrypt or Argon2 is used, to ensure a safe and proper way to store the passwords for the users. A lightweight Blade Templating Engine. Caching System Supporting: "apc,” "array,” "database,” "file," "memcached," and "redis" methods. Eloquent and much more!
