A Laravel 4 package for easy and comfortable pre-launch page setup

dev-master 2015-08-06 10:20 UTC


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.

BetaUp Default Theme - Magister


  1. Add "belar/betaup": "dev-master" to your composer.json file and do composer update.
  2. Edit app/config/app.php and add 'Belar\Betaup\BetaupServiceProvider', to your providers list:
'providers' => array(
  1. Migrate php artisan migrate --package="belar/betaup"
  2. (Optional) Publish config to adjust php artisan config:publish belar/betaup
  3. (Optional) Copy Views to adjust php artisan view:publish belar/betaup
  4. (Optional) Publish assets [for default theme] php artisan asset:publish belar/betaup

Now you should be able to access BetaUp via your_domain/betaup.

Referal links & karma system

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 .../betaup/referal/referal_code.
