Laravel 5 wrapper for Adminer. Adminer is an excellent database management tool in a single PHP file written by Jakub Vrana. It's a great replacement for PhpMyAdmin (also supports PostgreSQL, SQLite, MS SQL, Oracle, Firebird, SimpleDB, Elasticsearch and MongoDB).


To include the library, go to your project's folder and run:

composer require "miroc/laravel-adminer"

To add adminer to Laravel routes (e.g. /adminer), update routes/web.php file with:

Route::any('adminer', '\Miroc\LaravelAdminer\AdminerController@index');

To autologin Adminer with Laravel default connection, add the following controller instead:

Route::any('adminer', '\Miroc\LaravelAdminer\AdminerAutologinController@index');

Disabling CSRF Middleware

Adminer doesn't work with VerifyCsrfToken middleware, so it has to be disabled on its route.

Laravel 5.1+

In VerifyCsrfToken.php disable CSRF by adding adminer route to $except array:

protected $except = [

Laravel 5.0

The easiest way is to create a custom VerifyCsrfToken middleware that excludes selected routes:

use Closure;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Http\Middleware\VerifyCsrfToken;

class CustomVerifyCsrfToken extends VerifyCsrfToken {

    protected $excludedRoutes = ['adminer'];

	public function handle($request, Closure $next)
        if ($this->isExcludedRoute($request)){
            return $next($request);
        } else {
            return parent::handle($request, $next);

    private function isExcludedRoute($request)
        if (count($request->segments()) > 0
            && in_array($request->segment(1), $this->excludedRoutes)){
            return true;
        } else {
            return false;

And then use that instead of VerifyCsrfToken in Kernel.php

protected $middleware = [


Due to function name conflicts of Laravel5 and Adminer, adminer.php file functions 'cookie()', 'redirect()' and 'view()' are prefixed with 'adm_' prefix.
