Handesk an Open-source Ticketing System With Laravel

Handesk is a nifty open-source solution for a helpdesk that helps them organize their customer services, have multiple teams with multiple users by having a powerful simple Ticketing system.

The project gained popularity among PHP developers. It is built primarily with PHP. Handesk looks very nice, and it is elementary.

It is originally developed (by At Revo Systems www.revo.works) a modern Laravel-based App. It was released under the MIT license.

Installing Handesk takes a few minutes, it only requires a standard Laravel installation:

git clone https://github.com/BadChoice/handesk.git
cd handesk
composer install
# Setup your .env file to match your desired database
php artisan key:generate
php artisan migrate --seed
php artisan storage:link #if you use the local driver

If you are an avid Docker user, Handesk developers got you covered with a simple instruction as well.
