Whether you`re just starting out in web development or you`re a sprint veteran, you are probably thinking the same thing: starting from scratch is time consuming.

 

We here at UPDIVISION teamed up with Creative Tim to give people like yourself a quick and painless way to jumpstart your project. And make it look amazing in the process.

 

We created a starter kit which you can easily customize to fit your development needs. Both frontend (Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and backend (Laravel). This is a great starting point for building admin panels for web apps and websites. The fully integrated Laravel backend does the heavy lifting, while the ready to use CRUDs manage everything you need in terms of content and users.     

 

We estimate Argon Dashboard Pro Laravel saves you a hefty 90 hours of development. Instead of hand coding every component and investing time in doing the integration, you have a boilerplate which does the work for you. All of this to help take away the pain out of prototyping, setting up and launching your web app. 

 

The present guide is meant to give you a flavour of how you can harness this power. Below are six web apps you can start building right away and the general steps for setting up each project.
