It is currently under heavy development and not recommended for production environments.



Require this package with composer:

composer require christhompsontldr/laraboard

Service Provider

After updating composer, add the ServiceProvider to the providers array in config/app.php

Laravel 5.x:



Now move the config files from the package into your application

php artisan vendor:publish

This will create config/laraboard.php and config/laratrust.php. If you want to modify table prefixes or other information, now is the time to do it.


The next command will create migrations, create the Role and Permission models and add traits to your application's User model.

php artisan laraboard:setup

Laratrust Already Installed?

If you already have Laratrust installed, you have the option to not set it up now

php artisan laraboard:setup --no-laratrust

Want to create migrations before running setup?

This will allow you to create the migrations only. You can then modify them. Run this before the setup command.

php artisan laraboard:migrations


Run the migrations

php artisan migrate


If you have not created the role found in the laraboard.user.admin_role, create it now and associate it with a user.
