Simple package to quickly generate basic structure for other laravel packages inspired by Alexander Melihov Laravel Package generator.


Install via composer

composer require --dev blok/laravel-package-generator

Add service provider to config/app.php in providers section (it is optional step if you use laravel>=5.5 with package auto discovery feature)


Publish package config if you want customize default values

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Blok\LaravelPackageGenerator\ServiceProvider" --tag="config"

Available commands

php artisan package:new vendor package

Create new package.

Example: php artisan package:new Melihovv SomeAwesomePackage

This command will:

  • Create workbench/bok/some-awesome-package folder
  • Register package in app composer.json
  • Copy package skeleton from skeleton folder to created folder (you can provide your custom skeleton path in config)
  • Run git init packages/blok/some-awesome-package
  • Run composer update blok/some-awesome-package
  • Run composer dump-autoload

I recommend to run this command with interactive -i flag:

php artisan package:new Blok SomeAwesomePackage -i

This way you will be prompted for every needed value.

php artisan package:remove

Remove the existing package.

Example: php artisan package:remove Blok SomeAwesomePackage

This command will:

  • Run composer remove blok/some-awesome-package
  • Remove packages/blok/some-awesome-package folder
  • Unregister package in app composer.json
  • Run composer dump-autoload

Interactive mode also possible.

php artisan package:clone

Clone the existing package.

Example: php artisan package:clone Melihovv LaravelEnvValidator --src=src/LaravelEnvValidator

This command will:

  • Clone specified repo in packages/blok/laravel-env-validator folder
  • Register package in app composer.json
  • Run composer update blok/laravel-env-validator
  • Run composer dump-autoload

Interactive mode also possible. If you need you can specify which branch to clone with -b flag.
