Laravel CRUD Generator


Laravel >=5.1
PHP >= 5.5.9


  1. Run

    composer require appzcoder/crud-generator
  2. Add service provider to /config/app.php file.

    'providers' => [
  3. Install laravelcollective/html package for form & html.

    • Run
    composer require laravelcollective/html
    // For laravel 5.1
    composer require laravelcollective/html "5.1.*"
    • Add service provider & aliases to /config/app.php file.
    'providers' => [
    // Use the lines below for "laravelcollective/html" package otherwise remove it.
    'aliases' => [
        'Form'      => Collective\Html\FormFacade::class,
        'HTML'      => Collective\Html\HtmlFacade::class,
  4. Run composer update

  5. Publish config file & generator template files.

    php artisan vendor:publish

Note: You should have configured database for this operation.


Crud command:

php artisan crud:generate Posts --fields="title:string, body:text"

You can also easily include route, set primary key, set views directory etc through options --route, --pk, --view-path as belows:

php artisan crud:generate Posts --fields="title:string:required, body:text:required" --route=yes --pk=id --view-path="admin" --namespace=Admin --route-group=admin


  • --fields : Fields name for the form & model.
  • --route : Include Crud route to routes.php? yes or no.
  • --pk : The name of the primary key.
  • --view-path : The name of the view path.
  • --namespace : Namespace of the controller.
  • --route-group : Prefix of the route group.

Other commands (optional):

For controller generator:

php artisan crud:controller PostsController --crud-name=posts --model-name=Post --view-path="directory" --route-group=admin

For model generator:

php artisan crud:model Post --fillable="['title', 'body']"

For migration generator:

php artisan crud:migration posts --schema="title:string, body:text"

For view generator:

php artisan crud:view posts --fields="title:string, body:text" --view-path="directory" --route-group=admin

By default, the generator will attempt to append the crud route to your routes.php file. If you don't want the route added, you can use the option --route=no.

After creating all resources, run migrate command. If necessary, include the route for your crud as well.

php artisan migrate

If you chose not to add the crud route in automatically (see above), you will need to include the route manually.

Route::resource('posts', 'PostsController');
