Assets

Assets are managed with Laravel Mix. In order to work on assets, you need to install Node.js, then enter your website folder and run these commands:

  1. Install npm packages (in directory node_modules)

    npm install
    
  2. Compile admin and public assets

    npm run dev
    

Configuration

  1. Set locales in config/translatable.php.
  2. Set fallback_locale in config/app.php.
  3. Set main_locale_in_url in config/typicms.php to true or false.
  4. Cache driver is set to array, you can change it to another taggable cache system such as redis or memcached in your .env file.

Installation of a module

This example is for the News module. After these steps, the module will appear in the sidebar of the back office. If you need to customize it, you can publish it!

  1. Install module with Composer

    composer require typicms/news
    
  2. Add TypiCMS\Modules\News\Providers\ModuleProvider::class, to config/app.php, before TypiCMS\Modules\Core\Providers\ModuleProvider::class,

  3. Publish views and migrations

    php artisan vendor:publish
    
  4. Migrate the database

    php artisan migrate
    

Module scaffolding

This example is for a module called Cats.

  1. Create the module with artisan:

    php artisan typicms:create cats
    
  2. The module is in /Modules/Cats, you can customize it

  3. Add TypiCMS\Modules\Cats\Providers\ModuleProvider::class, to config/app.php, before TypiCMS\Modules\Core\Providers\ModuleProvider::class,

  4. Migrate the database

    php artisan migrate
    

Available modules

Each module can be published.

Pages

Pages are nestable with drag and drop, on drop, URIs are generated and saved in the database. Each translation of a page has its own route. A page can be linked to a module. A page can have multiple sections.

Menus

Each menu has nestable entries. One entry can be linked to a page or URL. You can return a HTML formated menu with Menus::render('menuname') or @menu('menuname').

Projects

Projects have categories, projects URLs follows this pattern: /en/projects/category-slug/project-slug

Tags

Tags are linked to projects and use the Selectize plugin. The tags module has many to many polymorphic relations so a tag can be easily linked to any module.

Events

Events have starting and ending dates.

News

News module.

Contacts

Frontend contact form and admin side records management.

Partners

A partner has a logo, website URL, title and body content.

Files

The files module allows you to upload and organize images, documents and folders. It works with DropzoneJS for the uploading proccess. Thumbnails are generated on the fly thanks to Croppa.

If you want to store the original images on a storage service such as Amazon s3 and your cropped images on the local disk, set FILESYSTEM_DRIVER=s3 in your .env file and in config/croppa.php set 'src_dir' => 'filesystem.default.driver' and 'crops_dir' => storage_path('app/public').

Users and roles

User registration can be enabled through the settings panel (/admin/settings). Roles and Permissions are managed with spatie/laravel-permission.

Blocks

Blocks are useful to display custom content in your views. You can display the content of a block with Blocks::render('blockname') or @block('blockname').

Translations

Translations can be stored in the database through the admin panel (/admin/translations).

You can call DB translation everywhere with Lang::get('db.Key'), trans('db.Key') or @lang('db.Key').

Sitemap

A sitemap is generated by reading all pages available in your project. The URL is /sitemap.xml.

Settings

Change the website title, logo, and other options in the settings panel.

History

created, updated, deleted, online and offline actions are logged in database. Latest records are displayed in the back office’s dashboard.

Facades

Each modules has a facade that give you access to the repository, you can call for example News::latest(3) to get the three latest news. Check available methods in each module’s repository.

Artisan commands

Commands are located in /vendor/typicms/core/src/Commands

Installation of TypiCMS

php artisan typicms:install

Initial migration and seed

php artisan typicms:database

This command is triggered by typicms:install

Publish a module

If you want to modify a module, for example to add some fields or a relation, you have to publish it by running:

php artisan typicms:publish <modulename>

The module is now located in the /Modules directory.

These steps will be executed:

  1. Publishing of views and migrations for Pages module.
  2. Copying of everything excepted views and migrations from /vendor/typicms/pages/src to /Modules/Pages.
  3. Running composer remove typicms/pages.

When a module is published, it will be tracked by git and you will be able to make changes in /Modules/Modulename directory without loosing changes when running composer update.

You can easily scaffold a module by running this this command:

php artisan typicms:create <modulename>
