Caffeinated Path

Laravel 5.2 Source License

Note: This was originally part of the Caffeinated/Path package. I've extracted it out into it's own package.

Caffeinated Path allows the means to easily customize the default structure of your Laravel 5 application. This means you can take the default Laravel framework structure:

laravel5/
|-- app/
|-- bootstrap/
|-- config/
|-- database/
|-- public/
|-- resources/
|-- storage/
|-- tests/

And configure it into something like:

laravel5/
|-- app/
|-- bootstrap/
|-- system/
	|-- config/
	|-- database/
	|-- resources/
	|-- storage/
	|-- tests/

The package follows the FIG standards PSR-1, PSR-2, and PSR-4 to ensure a high level of interoperability between shared PHP code.

Quick Installation

Begin by installing the package through Composer.

composer require caffeinated/path=~1.0

Once this operation is complete, simply add the service provider class to your project's config/app.php file:

Service Provider

Caffeinated\Path\PathServiceProvider::class,

Instantiate Caffeinated Path Application

First off, you'll need to use the Caffeinated Path Application instance in place of Laravel's Illuminate Foundation Application. Simply replace it within the bootstrap/app.php file like so:

$app = new Caffeinated\Path\Application(
	realpath(__DIR__.'/../')
);

The Caffeinated Path Application extends the Illuminate Foundation Application and adds the ability to customize the directories via the provided path config file.

Now you may configure any of the base paths as you like! Though do note, that some paths require a little more setup than others:

Read on to find out how to configure these paths, or use the above links to jump directly to any section.

Setting a Custom Config Path

If you'd like to move your config directory, provide the path as the second parameter when creating a new instance of the Caffeinated Path Application:

$app = new Caffeinated\Path\Application(
	realpath(__DIR__.'/../'),
	realpath(__DIR__.'/../system/config/')   // Your custom config path
);

Changing The Bootstrap Path

Caffeinated Path does not provide the means to change your bootstrap directory path, because it's a simply edit you need to make within the three following files (don't worry, it's nothing complicated):

  • public/index.php
  • bootstrap/app.php
  • bootstrap/autoload.php

Step 1: Updating public/index.php

First off, you'll be wanting to change the following two require paths within your public/index.php file:

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Register The Auto Loader
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Composer provides a convenient, automatically generated class loader for
| our application. We just need to utilize it! We'll simply require it
| into the script here so that we don't have to worry about manual
| loading any of our classes later on. It feels nice to relax.
|
*/

require __DIR__.'/../bootstrap/autoload.php';

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Turn On The Lights
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| We need to illuminate PHP development, so let us turn on the lights.
| This bootstraps the framework and gets it ready for use, then it
| will load up this application so that we can run it and send
| the responses back to the browser and delight our users.
|
*/

$app = require_once __DIR__.'/../bootstrap/app.php';

Step 2: Updating bootstrap/app.php

Secondly, open your bootstrap/app.php file and update the relevant path to your application base:

$app = new Caffeinated\Path\Application(
	realpath(__DIR__.'/../')                   // Update this path
);

Step 3: Updating bootstrap/autoload.php

Lastly, open your bootstrap/autoload.php file and update both the Composer autoload and compiled class paths:

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Register The Composer Auto Loader
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Composer provides a convenient, automatically generated class loader
| for our application. We just need to utilize it! We'll require it
| into the script here so that we do not have to worry about the
| loading of any our classes "manually". Feels great to relax.
|
*/

require __DIR__.'/../vendor/autoload.php';

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Include The Compiled Class File
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| To dramatically increase your application's performance, you may use a
| compiled class file which contains all of the classes commonly used
| by a request. The Artisan "optimize" is used to create this file.
|
*/

$compiledPath = __DIR__.'/../storage/framework/compiled.php';

That should be it! Simply fire up your app to verify.
