Notes:

  • Rinvex University is framework-agnostic, so it's compatible with any PHP framework whatsoever without any dependencies at all, except for the PHP version itself ^8.0.0. Awesome, huh? 😃
  • Rinvex University provides the global helpers for your convenience and for ease of use, but in fact it's just wrappers around the underlying UniversityLoader class, which you can utilize and use directly if you wish
