Out of the box, Laravel makes it really simple to scaffold out with its authentication quickstart. Whilst this makes it really easy to register and authenticate users, for many of the applications I find myself building, we usually remove the ability for visitors to register themselves.

I still need a way to get users into those applications, however, and whilst they're in early development this usually involves firing up Laravel Tinker. This can be a tedious process, and one that I repeat many times over.

This package aims to solve the repetition problem by providing a convenient make:user Artisan command.
