In this article we will discuss how to get started with wink for blog creation.
Since wink is a laravel package its but obvious first we have to install laravel. You can follow the official installation guide for the same
Ones we have laravel all setup and running wink is installed as all the other laravel packages
composer require themsaid/wink php artisan wink:install php artisan storage:link
Ones this is done, we have to set up the Database. Configure the database connection in config/wink.php.
use "mysql" if you want the use the default DB connection else you can make a different one as per the requirement. After this run the following commands
php artisan config:cache php artisan wink:migrate
and that it, you are good to go.
Head to "your-project.test/wink/login" and use the provided email and password to log in.

as in each update there might be a chance DB is changes so make sure to run these two commands too.
php artisan wink:migrate php artisan vendor:publish --tag=wink-assets --force
