This is a command line installer for the Laravel 5 Boilerplate project that gives you a step by step wizard for installation instead of doing it manually.

How To Use


  • Composer (Local or global)
  • NPM (Global)
  • Gulp (Global)

First, download the Laravel installer using Composer:

composer global require "rappasoft/laravel-boilerplate-installer"

Make sure to place the ~/.composer/vendor/bin directory (or the equivalent directory for your OS) in your PATH so the boilerplate executable can be located by your system.

Once installed, the boilerplate new command will create a fresh Laravel Boilerplate installation in the directory you specify.

If you leave the directory out it will install in the current working directory.

For example:

boilerplate new mywebsite

Will install in a new folder called mywebsite using the current working directory as the base.

It will take you through the following steps:

  • Download
  • Composer Install
  • Copy the .env file
  • Generate the Key
  • NPM Install
  • Running Gulp
  • Set the Namespace
  • Connect to the Database
  • Set the Administrator Account
  • Seed the Database

Not all steps are required an it will ask you along the way.

This has only been tested on Laravel Homestead and not MAMP/XAAMP
