Nova now comes with a new set of functions for use with databases based on Laravel. I’m getting to know this functionality by running through what's possible with a few practical examples.

Task of the day today is Email, I will be looking at how standard email is sent throught PHP and how html email can be sent too.
The basis of this is the mail() function so I will be looking at what parameters are required to make this work.
I will later be looking at how email is used in the SMVCF but this task is initialy to familiarise myself with sending email using raw php.
