Packagit is amazing laravel modules management, you could manage huge project with many separate laravel modules.

You could run packagit or a short name p, such as p new Auth, a module named Auth would be created.

You can make artisan command running anywhere, All the packagit commands are same with artisan like following table.

artisan packagit
php artisan tinker p tinker
php artisan make:controller p make:controller
php artisan make:migration p make:migration
php artisan make:job p make:job
php artisan test p test
php artisan ... p ...

for example, you have a project named starter, directories layout:

    └── modules
        ├── Auth
        ├── Components
        └── Wechat

change path to starter/modules/Auth, and run p make:controller:

cd starter/modules/Auth
p make:controller DemoController

DemoController.php would be created for Auth module.

└── Controllers
   └── DemoController.php

change path to starter/app/Http/Controllers, and p make:controller:

cd starter/app/Http/Controllers
p make:controller DemoController

DemoController.php would be created for starter, because of current path doesn't include any module.

So when you run p make:xxx laravel command, packagit would scan the path, if current is in a module path, it will create for the module, otherwise for the project.


composer global require packagit/packagit

You MUST install packagit with global, and add composer bin to the $PATH environment.

Following command would help you find the global bin path:

composer global config bin-dir --absolute --global

# such as $HOME/.composer/vendor/bin, add to $PATH
# save to ~/.zshrc or ~/.bashrc
export PATH=$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin:$PATH


1. Custom package namespace (Optional)

run p custom

config/packagit.php file would be created, you could customize namespace by edit this file, skip here if you don't need custom.

2. Create a new module

run packagit new ModuleName

you also could group many modules as Components or others you want.

packagit new Components/NetUtil
packagit new Components/Updater
packagit new Components/Downloader
