A package to maintain a searchable database of vinyl records
A Laravel package to maintain my database of vinyl records in my collection, with a searchable HTML interface and an API interface. Currently has English and French language, easily expandable with additional languages.
$ composer require escuccim/recordcollection
Register service provider in config/app.php:
Run migrations to create the database table:
php artisan migrate
This uses a middleware to determine if the user is authorized to perform administrative tasks. You can use mine or create your own, the code references middleware 'admin', so unless there is a middleware with this name registered will throw errors. To use mine register it in app/Http/Kernel.php:
'admin' => \Escuccim\RecordCollection\Http\Middleware\AdminMiddleware::class,
<script src="/js/app.js"></script> @stack('scripts')
And you need to remove the script tag referencing app.js from the bottom of the layout file.
You must publish the config and pagination files with:
php artisan vendor:publish --tag=config
If you wish to edit the language or view files you can also publish those:
php artisan vendor:publish
There are multiple groups of files to be published, which you can choose by adding --tags=[group] to the command:
- config - publishes the config file to /config/records.php
- migrations - publishes the database migrations to /database/migrations
- lang - publishes the translation files to /resources/lang/vendor - currently I have files for English and French
- views - publishes the views /resoures/vendor/views
Once you have everything installed the route /records should take you to the list of records, where you can add or edit records. I do not have a delete function as I would never get rid of any of my records.
The HTML interface will display a link to discogs and a thumbnail from discogs if you have that info in the database table. If not I wrote scripts I used to pull the info from Discogs, but due to the large numbers of variations of many vinyl releases it usually needs a bit of hand-holding to populate usable data.
In the records.php config file is a key called 'use_rich_cards'. This allows you to display a Rich Card with the record information. The thumbnail from the record will be used as an image if this is on.
