composer require roelofjan-elsinga/flat-file-cms-gui

and if you want to customize any of the default settings used by this package, you can publish the configuration:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="AloiaCms\\GUI\\ServiceProvider"

This will create a aloiacmsgui.php in your config folder.

After this, you'll need to publish the assets for this package, by running:

php artisan aloiacmsgui:publish:assets

This places the assets for the dashboard in public/vendor/aloiacmsgui.

Creating a user

You can create a user by running:

php artisan aloiacmsgui:create:account --username=yourusername --password=yourpassword

You can customize which editors you want to use for HTML and Markdown pages by overwriting the views.
