Installation Steps

1. Require the package

After creating your new Laravel application you can include the coupon package with the following command:

composer require a4anthony/coupon:1.0.0

2. Add the DB Credentials & APP_URL

Next make sure to create a new database and add your database credentials to your .env file:


You will also want to update your website URL inside of the APP_URL variable inside the .env file:


3. Install coupon generator

Lastly, we can install the coupon generator. You can do this either with or without dummy data. The dummy data will include 1 admin account (if no users already exists) and 5 test coupons

To install the coupon generator without dummy simply run

php artisan coupon:install

If you prefer installing it with dummy run

php artisan coupon:install --with-dummy

If you encounter any issues with the installation, run the code below to autoload all classes and retry the installation

composer dump-autoload

And we're all good to go!

Start up a local development server with php artisan serve And, visit http://localhost:8000/coupon/dashboard.

Creating an Admin User

If you did go ahead with the dummy data, a user should have been created for you with the following login credentials:

email: admin@admin.com
password: password

If you did not install the dummy data and you wish to create a new admin user you can pass the --create flag, like so:

php artisan coupon:admin your@email.com --create

And you will be prompted for the user's name and password.

4. Register custom guards for the coupon generator

Go to the the config folder and open the auth.php file. In the providers array, include the code below

'admin' => [
'driver' => 'eloquent',
'model' => \A4anthony\Coupon\Models\Admin::class,

In the same file, in the guards array, include the code below

'admin' => [
'redirectTo' => 'coupon.dashboard',
'driver' => 'session',
'provider' => 'admin',

5. Adjust the RedirectIfAuthenticated class to recognize custom guard

Go to app/Http/Middleware/RedirectIfAuthenticated.php and edit the handle() method to the code below:

    public function handle($request, Closure $next, $guard = null)
    if (Auth::guard($guard)->check()) {
        if ($guard == "admin") {
            return redirect()->route('coupon.dashboard');
        return redirect(RouteServiceProvider::HOME);

    return $next($request);

6. Register the custom middleware class

app/Http/Middleware/RedirectIfAuthenticated.php and include the code below in the $routeMiddleware array

'admin' => \App\Http\Middleware\CouponAuthenticate::class
