But professionals don't love Backpack just because it's feature-packed. They also love it because it's ridiculously easy to overwrite a functionality. Generally, you just need to create a function with the right name or create a blade file with the right name. Yes, it can be that easy. See why thousands of Laravel professionals have been using Backpack, every day, since 2016.



The GIF above should give you with a good idea about what Backpack will help you build. But you can also see it in action in our live demo, to get a deeper understanding of how Backpack admin panels look & feel and the amount of features it provides.

Getting started

Start with the "Getting Started" series in our docs. We try to nudge you towards creating a Backpack acccount, but you don't need one, if you're just trying it out.

Alternatively, if you don't have 20 minutes right now, subscribe to our drip email tutorial. You'll receive one email per day, for 5 days, 5 minutes each. By the end, you'll be familiar with how Backpack works, and be able to create admin panels for your Laravel apps.

Security updates and breaking changes

If you're using Backpack in production, please subscribe to the Backpack Newsletter so you can find out about any security updates, breaking changes or major features. We never ever share your email with anyone & we try to send as few emails as possible (1-4 emails per year). We hate unsolicited email too. But... you know... you're building an admin panel, security should be something you're up-to-date with.



If you can run Laravel 8, you can install Backpack. Backpack does not have additional requirements. For the following process, we assume:

  • you have a working installation of Laravel (an existing project is fine, you don't need a fresh Laravel install);

  • you have configured your .ENV file with your database and mail information;

  • you can run the composer command from any directory (you have composer registered as a global command); if you need to run php composer.phar or reference another directory, please remember to adapt the commands below to your configuration;


Install Core Packages

  1. Open your project folder in your terminal:
cd your-laravel-project-name
  1. In your project's main directory:
# require Backpack using Composer
composer require vuthaihoc/crud:"4.2.*"
composer require --dev backpack/generators:"3.1.11"

# run the installation command
php artisan backpack:install

Backpack install is interactive and will ask questions during instalation, if you don't want that add the --no-interaction argument to the install command.

Change Log

For the current release (4.1.x) please see the Releases tab. For previous versions (Backpack <=4.0.x), please see our old CHANGELOG file.
