A Laravel 4 package for easy and comfortable pre-launch page setup
BetaUp is no longer being actively developed. Feel free to fork and use this repo, but at the moment, I can't promise it will be updated to the newest version of Laravel.
It's a Composer package for Laravel that allows setting up pre-launch, sign up page with e-mail activation (confirmation). Package includes model for beta-user, migrations and basic view.
"belar/betaup": "dev-master"to your composer.json file and do
- Edit app/config/app.php and add
'Belar\Betaup\BetaupServiceProvider',to your providers list:
'providers' => array( 'Illuminate\Foundation\Providers\ArtisanServiceProvider', 'Illuminate\Auth\AuthServiceProvider', ... 'Belar\Betaup\BetaupServiceProvider', ),
php artisan migrate --package="belar/betaup"
- (Optional) Publish config to adjust
php artisan config:publish belar/betaup
- (Optional) Copy Views to adjust
php artisan view:publish belar/betaup
- (Optional) Publish assets [for default theme]
php artisan asset:publish belar/betaup
Now you should be able to access BetaUp via
Configuration file allows you to customize BetaUp options and you can find it in
app/config/packages/belar/betaup after publication (step 4 of installation).
'uri' => 'betaup' - package address prefix, by default it's yourdomain/betaup, you can change it to ex. yourdomain/amazinghype etc.

'dark_theme' => 'true' Changes colour scheme to dark, set to 'false' for bright style.

$amount of unique Beta codes, 1 by default.

NOTE: This options are available since version 2.3. If you are updating from version 2.2.1 or earlier, you need to run a migration which adds fields for referal code and karma value.
By default referal code is genereted to every newly submited email and 1 karma point is added to every user who successfuly confirms his email with activation link. At the same time referer is getting +1 karma if form was accessed via referal link in form of
