Manages the editing and rendering of menus in a Laravel - Backpack application.


In your terminal:

composer require novius/laravel-backpack-menu

Then, if you are on Laravel 5.4 (no need for Laravel 5.5 and higher), register the service provider to your config/app.php file:


Finally, run:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\Backpack\Menu\MenuServiceProvider" --tag="routes"
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\Backpack\Menu\MenuServiceProvider" --tag="lang"
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\Backpack\Menu\MenuServiceProvider" --tag="migrations"
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\Backpack\Menu\MenuServiceProvider" --tag="views"
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Novius\Backpack\Menu\MenuServiceProvider" --tag="config"

php artisan migrate

Usage & Features

You can display the menu within your view like this:

// The function takes two parameters:
//  1. Slug => Identifies the menu
//  2. Locale => (Optional) Force a locale version of the menu.

\Novius\Backpack\Menu\Models\Menu::display('header', 'en');

To achieve that, first you need:

Configure the package. Take a look at the comments in:


Use the trait LinkedItems in the models you listed in the linkableObjects configuration

use Novius\Backpack\Menu\LinkedItems;

// And optionally overrides the base functionality to suit your needs:

public static function linkableItems(string $prefix = ''): array
public static function linkableRoute(string $routeName, string $translation): array
public function linkableUrl(): string
public function linkableTitle(): string
public function linkableId(): string

Add a link in your sidebar.blade.php file to get access from the backpack backoffice

  <a href="{{ route('') }}">
      <i class="fa fa-list"></i>
      <span>{{ trans('laravel-backpack-menu::menu.menus') }}</span>

Create your menus and items. You can reorder and nest the items. The items are related to the current locale. Switch the back-office language to add items for other locales.
