Getting started

Compile CSS and JS (Optional)

The Bootstrap and Vue scaffolding provided by Laravel as of version 6.0 is now located in the laravel/ui Composer package.

Laravel 8 has shifted the official Authentication support to Laravel/Fortify. This package is still scaffolding auth based off the laravel/ui but we intend to catch up ASAP.

Note: This should only be done for fresh installations.

composer require laravel/ui

php artisan ui bootstrap

npm install && npm run dev

Serve application{guard}


Check guards

$ php artisan tinker
>>> config('auth.guards');

Access guard instance:

Specify the guard instance you would like to use, eg using admin guard...


Check routes:

To find out which routes have been created for your guard.

php artisan route:list

Email verification:

You may require users to verify their email addresses before using the application. Read the wiki on how to enable this.
