Via Composer

composer require backpack/generators --dev

For Laravel 7, 6 or 5.5+ - you're done.

For Laravel 5.4 or 5.3 you'll only want to use these generators for local development, so you don't want to update the production providers array in config/app.php. Instead, add the provider in app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php, like so:

public function register()
    if ($this->app->environment() == 'local') {
        // $this->app->register('Laracasts\Generators\GeneratorsServiceProvider'); // you're using Jeffrey way's generators, too, right?


Open the console and enter one of the commands:

  • Generate Backpack\CRUD interfaces for all Eloquent models that don't already have one:
php artisan backpack:build
  • Generate all files for one new Backpack\CRUD interface:
php artisan backpack:crud {Entity_name}

# this will create a Model if there isn't one, or add
# our CrudTrait to the model if it already exists
  • Generate a new Backpack\CRUD file:
php artisan backpack:crud-controller {Entity_name}
php artisan backpack:crud-model {Entity_name}
php artisan backpack:crud-request {Entity_name}
  • Generate a model (available options: --softdelete)
php artisan backpack:model {Entity_name}
  • Generate a request
php artisan backpack:request {Entity_name}
  • Generate a view (available options: --plain)
php artisan backpack:view {Entity_name}
  • Generate a config file
php artisan backpack:config {Entity_name}
