JumpGate does a few common things for you when it comes to inertia. Aside from the auto resolving route -> page file, it also passes some common data to inertia for you.
Just like inertia suggests, we store passed data in the
app/Http/Middleware/HandleInertiaRequests.php. By default we
share the results of our basic menus (admin, left menu, right menu) and common flash messages (success and error). These
get passed down and used by our included vue files.
resources/js/Shared/Menu/Main(for the left and right menus) and the admin menu is used in
If you want to add anything to shared, this would be where and how to do it.
When first trying out inertia we used axios for submitting forms from the vue pages. Inertia has updated since then and has some amazing built in form handling. You can see examples of this in some of our user package pages. For the basic docs (which are very easy to follow), look directly to their site.
