Hi Wael,
thank you for even mentioning that lumen is this capable man. i have read everywhere that lumen cannot handle even a small eCommerce app. But you proved that it can and it does.
as i am very new in Laravel/Lumen and PHP itself, please tell me what are the most important limitation when using Lumen instead of Laravel in an eCommerce App?

thank you man, appreciate your great job…

Lumen is designed mostly for backend for writing api’s and querries and its faster as it doesnt contain the entire laravel dependences only those needed

Hi, do you have a tutorial to deploy the website? I’m new at web application development so I’m still clueless on how to deploy when you have both the admin dashboard and the actual website.
