First, install the Lumenate installer and make sure that the global Composer bin directory is within your system's $PATH:

composer global require "orchestra/lumenate=^1.0"

From within a working Orchestra Platform project, run the following command:

lumenate install

After installing Lumen, you can also opt to add the base Lumen application skeleton under lumen folder, you can do this by running:

lumenate make

You can also choose to add new path to autoload to detect lumen/app using PSR-4 or use a single app directory.

    "autoload": {
        "psr-4": {
            "App\\": "app/",
    "autoload-dev": {
        "classmap": [

    "prefer-stable": true,
    "minimum-stability": "dev"

It is recommended for you to set "prefer-stable": true and "minimum-stability": "dev" as both laravie/api and tymon/jwt-auth doesn't have a stable release for latest Lumen yet.

API Routing

Dingo API is preinstall with Lumen. To start using it you just need to uncomment the following from lumen/bootstrap.php:

require base_path('lumen/routes/api.php');

JWT Authentication

Install tymon/jwt-auth via the command line:

composer require "tymon/jwt-auth=^1.0"

Next, enable the following service providers from lumen/bootstrap.php:


// ...


Next, we need to create a secret key for JWT:

php lumen/artisan jwt:secret

This would add JWT_SECRET value to your main .env file.

Finally you can extends the default App\User model to support Tymon\JWTAuth\Contracts\JWTSubject:


namespace App;

use App\Lumen\User as Eloquent;

class User extends Eloquent
