I just have a quick question about the dev blog. Is it open source? If so, where can I find the source code? I want to create a subdomain on our world esports blogging application for the teams.

Another question, was The Dev Dojo made using laravel? I assume so lol considering that is Tony's framework of choice unless it has changed to Alpine.JS?

I only asked bc I noticed every page has the sponsor section, plus I remember seeing that as one of the components for Tails and I known Laravel is a templating system on top of a framework

Is this not getting an answer?

As you posted an answer to your question it slipped my radar as it was not showing under the unanswered questions :)

The Dev Blog is not open source. You can use the Subdomain Routing to achieve this:

Route::domain('{account}')->group(function () {
    Route::get('user/{id}', function (string $account, string $id) {
        // ...

You would just need a wildcard A record for * to point to your server IP in order to be able to use any subdomain with that domain route.

Yes, DevDojo is built on Laravel.

Alpine.js is just a JS framework and it works very well with Laravel, but you would not really be able to build the backend functionality using Alpine.js but instead you would use Alpine.js to add some interactivity on the frontend.

The templating system that Laravel uses is called Blade which lets you create components and include them in different Blade views and etc:

Bro I know all about Laravel and Blade lol. You guys get a lot of newbies eh? My main question was if dev blog was open source or if I needed to make my own. I cannot use 3rd party applications for our blogging feature and not only that but devdojo blog does not give you the option to use the dev blog with another server.

I wanted to use the dev blog if it were open source, and put it on a subdomain in our world esports application

I'm glad to hear you're well-versed with Laravel and Blade! Our community is inclusive and caters to members with diverse backgrounds and levels of expertise. We aim to provide comprehensive answers for everyone, so I apologize if my response seemed basic for you.

To address your main concern again, the Dev Blog is not open source. Given your requirements, you'll need to create your own solution or look for an open-source alternative that aligns with your needs.

No I totally understand and your response was indicative of dealing with newbies due to the language so I just mentioned it. I did not mean too offend you lol. It was just an observation.

Laravel has packages to create a blog but wanted to check about the dev blog first and technically Wave comes with a blog built-in and could use that. I just wanted it on the subdomain but am willing to compromise a bit to achieve desired results.
