This Laravel package lets you restore your application to a previous declared state. This is helpfull for demo applications where you set your users free but want to reset the state, for example, every midnight.

How to install

First require it in composer:

composer require beeldvoerders/laravel-reset

Next, add the ResetServiceProvider class to your config/app.php providers array:


How to use

You can specify which directories has to reset in the reset config file. By default this is the storage/app directory. If you want to change these config settings, publish them first to your application:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Beeldvoerders\Reset\ResetServiceProvider"

If you set the config right, you have to create the back-up on which the restore is based:

php artisan reset:create

Once the back-up is created, test it by making some changes to your application and reset the state:

php artisan reset

If you want to reset your application once every midnight, then you should add the Reset command to the Laravel scheduler:
