Scaffolder for laravel Software license Laravel version Waffle board Gitter chat

Remove the headache of creating over and over again the base code for most of your projects. You are free to extend it the way you need. This package only generate things that you need to start, always keeping the code clean and abstract. Are you hungry ? Fork it !


  1. Get laravel up and running

  2. Add the following packages to your composer.json

    "laravelcollective/html": "5.2.*",
    "yajra/laravel-datatables-oracle": "~6.0",
    "mpaleo/view-tags": "~1.0",
    "mpaleo/scaffolder-theme-material": "~1.0",
    "mpaleo/scaffolder": "~2.0",
  3. Update your packages

    composer update
  4. Add the service providers to the providers array in {laravel-root}\config\app.php

  5. Add the following aliases in {laravel-root}\config\app.php

    'ViewTags'   => ViewTags\ViewTags::class,
    'Form'       => Collective\Html\FormFacade::class,
    'Html'       => Collective\Html\HtmlFacade::class,

Getting started

First you need to publish the configuration files and assets

./artisan vendor:publish --provider="Scaffolder\ScaffolderServiceProvider"
./artisan vendor:publish --provider="ScaffolderTheme\ScaffolderThemeServiceProvider" --force

Here we are using the theme mpaleo/scaffolder-theme-material, but you can fork it, and do whatever you want/need :)

At this point, you already can start to scaffold things. You have two ways to use the package.

Command line way

When you execute the artisan publish command, the service provider creates the folder {laravel-root}\scaffolder-config that has the following structure:

- scaffolder-config
-- app.json
-- models
-- cache

The app.json file contains global settings, also you will get some demo files for models. All you need to scaffold an application is to edit the app.json file, and create the json files for the models you want. After you have all the files ready, you have the following commands:

This command generate the application using the files that you have provided.

./artisan scaffolder:generate

For instance, when you update the package, you should clear the cache files stored in {laravel-root}\scaffolder-config\cache

./artisan scaffolder:cache-clear
User interface way

All you need to do, is go to your http://{crazyhost}/scaffolder/generator and fill some inputs :)
