A database interface package for Laravel

v4.16.1 2015-01-23 01:12 UTC


Administrator is an administrative interface builder for Laravel. With Administrator you can visually manage your Eloquent models and their relations, and also create stand-alone settings pages for storing site data and performing site tasks.

Build Status



To install Administrator as a Composer package to be used with Laravel 4, simply add this to your composer.json:

"frozennode/administrator": "dev-master"

..and run composer update. Once it's installed, you can register the service provider in app/config/app.php in the providers array:

'providers' => array(

Then publish the config file with php artisan config:publish frozennode/administrator. This will add the file app/config/packages/frozennode/administrator/administrator.php. This config file is the primary way you interact with Administrator.

Then finally you need to publish the package's assets with the php artisan asset:publish frozennode/administrator command.

Laravel 3

Since Administrator has switched over to Composer, you can no longer use php artisan bundle:install administrator or php artisan bundle:upgrade administrator. If you want to use Administrator with Laravel 3, you must switch to the 3.3.2 branch, download it, and add it in the /bundles/administrator directory and add this to your bundles.php file:

'administrator' => array(
    'handles' => 'admin', //this determines what URI this bundle will use
    'auto' => true,
