Folder Structure

Main path

cms (main)
| |
| |__core modules
  |__local modules

1.cms : cms path is the main path of our app,that contain

  1.1 : core
  1.2 : local

1.1 : core : core path is core module path ,that contain number of core modules,avoid to write core modules

    1.1.1 : core modules -> core path contain number of core modules

1.2 : local : local path contain theme,we can create multiple theme

  1.2.1 : local modules -> theme path contain number of local module(user create module)

Skin path

public public (main)
 |__theme name

1 : public ->public folder is default folder in laravel

    1.1 : skin -> skin folder is our assets folder

    1.1.1 : theme name -> folder name is theme name , that contain css, fonts ,js,etc


Theme is main part of our package,we can create multiple theme,our package is theme and moduler based,all theme is placed on cms->local folder
Default theme is theme1

Create Theme

Just create new folder inside of cms->local.

Change theme

If you want to change theme?its very easy
Go to adminpanel->site configuration->change theme


Module is is a mechanism to group controller, views, modules, etc that are related, otherword module is pice of code or package of laravel


core is folder,that contain core modules (pre-defind) Module
Note: Don't change any code of core module's


local folder contain local module,which is created by user

Create own module

php artisan make:cms-module {module-name}
eg : php artisan make:cms-module helloworld
helloworld module is created under current theme folder
then register our module to database for feature use
php artisan update:cms-module
Where is the entry point (provider) of the module?
open provider folder under cms/local/{module}
that provider is same as laravel provider so boot and register method is important and additionaly we have some functions
  1. registerRoot -> registerRoot method is used to registreing our custom module routes
  2. registerAdminRoot -> registerAdminRoot method is used to registering our custom module admin routes
  3. registerViews -> registerViews method is used to registering our custom module views
if you want to enable this method,just uncommands calls inside register method of your provider thats all :) ,lets see files in modules,
  1. module.json ->file
  2. composer.json ->file
  3. menu.xml -> file
  4. routes.php -> file
  5. adminroutes -> file
  6. Controller -> folder
  7. Database ->folder
  8. Models -> folder
  9. config -> folder
  10. resourcesc-> folder
  11. Events -> folder
  12. Listeners -> folder
  13. Mail -> folder
  14. Middleware -> folder
  15. helpers ->folder


{ "name": "helloworld", "version": "0.0.1", "type" : "local", "providers": [ "Providers\\HelloworldServiceProvider" ] }
Parameter Data type Use is optional?
name string name of the module NO
version string version of the module NO
type string (core/local) type of the module NO
providers Array Provider of this module,provider is register point of our module NO
plugins string (relative path of plugin) plugin path,that used to defind plugin YES
helpers object (relative path of helpers) helpers path,that used to defind helpers,helpers contain common functions,we can use any where
"helpers" : { "HelperName1":"cms\\core\\blog\\helpers\\Blog", "HelperName2":"some path", .... }
search object (relative path of search class) search path,that used to defind search helper,search class functions, this is used to make our module is searchable
"helpers" : { "HelperName1":"cms\\core\\blog\\helpers\\Blog", "HelperName2":"some path", .... }
configuration string (view file path of configuration) configuration is used to view or edit module configuration eg:
"configuration" : "user::admin.configuration.configuration",
Above example is taken from user module,that mean user configuration is place on cms/core/user/admin/configuration/configuraion.blade.php
configuration_data string (configuration data function path) configuration data is get module configuration from function,its define function name,this function should return module configuration
"configuration_data" : "\\cms\\core\\user\\Controllers\\UserController@getConfigurationData"
Above example is taken from user module,
that mean user configuration function is place on cms/core/user/controller/UserController.php and function name is getConfigurationData
* configurations option
public function getConfigurationData()
$group = UserGroupModel::where('status',1)->where('id','!=',1)->orderBy('group','Asc')->pluck("group","id");
return ['user_group'=>$group];

Above function return available user groups

routes.php file contain routes of the frontend app exclude admin routes
don't have routes.php?,just create it.. :)
if you don't like file name?
we have good solution for you
go to your module main provider and find registerRoot function then change it


adminroutes.php file contain routes of the admin
this file is include admin middlewares and admin route group with administrator prefix
if you dont want admin middleware of current module
go to your module provider and find registerAdminRoot method and remove middleware

Artisian Commands

we provide more artisan commands

imagin we have more than 30 artisan commands,its not remebarable,but you know default laravel commands so we have some idea,we added one common word for all laravel commands,thats it,now easily you can remember our commands

default command for creating laravel controller is
php artisan make:controller {controller-name}
our comand is
php artisan make:cms-controller {controller-name} {module-name}
deafult migrate command is
php artisan migrate our migrate command is
php artisan cms-migrate
and one more we have our own commands,its not high count,but very usefull

List of our commands

  1. php artisan make:cms-module {module-name}
    this is used to make new module
  2. php artisan update:cms-menu
    this command is used to update or register menus

create new artisan commands for your module

if you want create new comand
php artisan make:cms-command {command-name} {module-name}
file is created under console/commands folder inside of your module

how to enable own commands?

open your module provider then create commands array
eg :
     * artisan command
    protected $commands = [
please replace module-name and commandclass like
     * artisan command
    protected $commands = [

then create method
     * register commands
    protected function registerCommand()
then add following line to register method
  public function register()

What is next?

now i am working on moving this package to react,V3.O will release soon
