  • [] Environments might be made configurable through a custom config.environments value in the package.json, where each key is the environment name and the value is its branch, the default values would be:
  "config": {
    "environments": {
      "dev": "master",
      "staging": "staging",
      "production": "production"
  • Run php artisan view:clear && composer dump after generate component and after core (not needed with ps-4 autoloading mechanism)
  • [] autogenerate dummy translations.csv files based on cms api response in case they miss
  • [] check should check that there is a /vendor folder, otherwise run composer install
  • [] Add this command somewhere to the end of your deploy script (I put it just after artisan up) php artisan opcache:clear source
  • [] Implement preload/prefetch, see article from webpack author and probably use preload-webpack-plugin.
