Getting Started

First add to composer.json

	"codesleeve/platform-core": "dev-master"

then add the service provider to the providers array in your app\config\app.php


then run commands for database

	php artisan migrate --package codesleeve/platform-core
	php artisan db:seed --class "Codesleeve\Platform\Seeds\Platform"

you can setup extra stuff in your project by running the command but this is only recommended for new projects

	php artisan platform:setup

Adding your own navigation

You can easily tap into the navigation of platform by using the Navigation laravel facade or App::make('platform.navigation');

	$blog = [
		'title' => 'Blogs',
		'icon' => 'fa-pencil-square-o',
		'url' => route('blogs.index'),
		'shown' => can('update', 'Blogs'),
		'active' => 'blogs',


Adjusting platform views

If you want to make a custom view you can modify any views after running

   $ php artisan view:publish codesleeve/platform-core

Adding your own dashboard sections

TODO Not implemented yet but on the radar.


Breadcrumbs helper

TODO Add a tidbit about Breadcrumbs. Also add the ability to easily override the Breadcrumbs view that is made (just how the Pagination component works in Laravel);

Additional helpers

TODO Add the form helpers and macros we have in platform core here...


  • I don't think we should rely on the BaseController for all the extra's. This would probably be better for a view.composer. Things like Breadcrumbs...

  • Change the theme and colors to match the website more... theme needs a little tinder love and care.
