Creating a honeycomb service

Honeycomb Service in honeycomb terms means Routes, Models, Controllers, Services, Repositories, Forms, Requests as one which can be access via url in admin panel.

  • create _hc_scripts_configuration folder in project root directory
  • create config.json file i.e. w_rewards.json
  • run php artisan hc-make:service it will generate files from given configuration (looks for .json files). It generates 1 file per run and add .done extension after success.

w_rewads.json example:

  "directory": "",
  "url": "rewards",
  "icon": "scroll",
  "serviceName": "WReward",
  "multiLanguage": 1,
  "forms": ["new", "edit"],
  "optionLabelList" : ["label"],
  "models": [
      "tableName": "w_reward",
      "modelName": "WReward",
      "default": 1,
      "repository": 1,
      "use": ["translations"]
  "actions": {
    "admin": [
    "front": [
    "api": [
