Publish Template (recommended)

This will create the default layout for the portal.
If you are installing the Lemur Engine into a fresh application then run this command.
If you already have a layout then you might want to skip this step
As it will overwrite your existing layouts/app.blade.php, auth templates and homepage\

php artisan vendor:publish --tag=lemurbot-template --force

If you are migrating or already have this data you probably will not need to run this (see section at top of page about migrating)

php artisan lemur:install-all --admin=[admin_email] --bot=[bot_name] --data=[none|min|max]

example:

php artisan lemur:install-all --admin=admin@lemurengine.local --bot=mybot --data=max

-admin_email is the email address you will log in with. Your password will be 'password' which you should change immediately.

-bot_name is the name of the bot you will create

-data choose either none|min|all. This will instruct the installer to install either

  • none - no data
  • min - 4 datasets (testing, hello, the critical and rating)
  • max - all available datasets

You do not have to install a user or bot, you can do these things at a later date, but we recommend you do this now.
If your user already exists it will be given bot admin privileges and will be linked to your bot.

Start the Application

You can start the application now and log in using the username you entered above and the password 'password'.
Don't forget to change your password.

php artisan serve

Use

Log in to admin your bot here: http://127.0.0.1:8000/login

Migrating From theramenrobotdiscocode/lemur-engine

The original version of this library was released as an entire application which included a checked in version of Laravel 7.
It is easy to migrate your original version of theramenrobotdiscocode/lemur-engine to this version.
There are NO database schema changes just some minor data changes and file location changes.
We suggest you install new fresh copy of Laravel 9 and configure it to connect to your existing database.
You will need to still follow the fresh installation instructions below.
And anyway "Additional Upgrade Steps" as well.

Additional Upgrade Step: Custom Tag

Only do this is you are migrating from the old project
Move any custom tags which you have created to a folder called in the main app folder called LemurTag like so.

app/
├── LemurTag/
│ ├── YourTag.php
│ ├── HelloWorldTag.php
└── Models/

You will need to change the namespace of your custom tags to namespace App\LemurTag;
Please look at the HelloWorldTag for an example

Additional Upgrade Step: Run the command to update a few filenames in the migrations folder

Only do this is you are migrating from the old project
There are 4 filenames in the migration table which need reverting to their original Laravel Migration filenames
Run this command to update the 4 filenames in the migrations table before you move onto the next step

php artisan lemur:upgrade 9.0.0
