README

Laravel Admin & BREAD System (Browse, Read, Edit, Add, & Delete), supporting Laravel 5.6 and 5.7!

Installation Steps

1. Require the Package

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

composer require afaneh262/iwan

2. Add the DB Credentials & APP_URL

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

DB_HOST=localhost
DB_DATABASE=homestead
DB_USERNAME=homestead
DB_PASSWORD=secret

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

APP_URL=http://localhost:8000

Only if you are on Laravel 5.4 will you need to Add the Service Provider.

3. Run The Installer

Lastly, we can install iwan. You can do this either with or without dummy data. The dummy data will include 1 admin account (if no users already exists), 1 demo page, 4 demo posts, 2 categories and 7 settings.

To install Iwan without dummy simply run

php artisan iwan:install

If you prefer installing it with dummy run

php artisan iwan:install --with-dummy

Troubleshooting: Specified key was too long error. If you see this error message you have an outdated version of MySQL, use the following solution: https://laravel-news.com/laravel-5-4-key-too-long-error

And we're all good to go!

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

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

NOTE: Please note that a dummy user is only created if there are no current users in your database.

If you did not go with the dummy user, you may wish to assign admin privileges to an existing user. This can easily be done by running this command:

php artisan iwan:admin your@email.com

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 iwan:admin your@email.com --create

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