Getting Started

Here are instructions if you are new to Laravel, or just want step-by-step instructions on how to install its development environment, Homestead:

$ composer create-project laravel/laravel burnermap "9.1.*"
$ cd burnermap
% php artisan key:generate
% composer require laravel/socialite components/jquery components/jqueryui

The instructions below include the needed steps to install BurnerMap.

  • Install Laravel's default user authentication:
$ php artisan make:auth
  • Update composer.json to add a requirement for Socialite, and associate paths for BurnerMap classes:
$ nano composer.json
"require": {
    "laravel/socialite": "^4.1.4",
    "rockhopsoft/burnermap": "^1.0",
"autoload": {
	"psr-4": {
		"RockHopSoft\\BurnerMap\\": "packages/rockhopsoft/burnermap/src/",
"repositories": {
        "type": "path",
        "url": "./packages/rockhopsoft/burnermap",
        "options": {
            "symlink": true
$ composer update
  • Add the package to your application service providers in config/app.php.
$ nano config/app.php
'providers' => [
'aliases' => [
	'BurnerMap'	 => 'RockHopSoft\BurnerMap\BurnerMapFacade',
  • Update composer, publish the package migrations, etc...
$ php artisan vendor:publish --force
$ php artisan migrate
$ composer dump-autoload
$ php artisan db:seed --class=BurnerMapSeeder
  • Download packages and copy to these locations in Laravel's public folder...

  • Change permissions so admins can upload new maps...

$ chown -R www-data:www-data public/images
$ chown -R www-data:www-data public/lib


Most of the core BurnerMap action is controlled by /src/Controllers/BurnerMap.php and /src/Views/. The Facebook connection is operated by Laravel's Socialite package, utilized from /src/Controllers/FaceController.php.

More documentation coming soon...


I originally built BurnerMap in 2011, and not a great deal changed outside of the admin tools. In reorganizing the code to release it open source, I primarily just converted it to run atop the Laravel framework. I did lots of code cleanup on the PHP level, and adapted database queries to Laravel's Eloquent, but haven't yet made it to the Javascript, or CSS (which will be worked on alongside a big, overdue UX upgrade). I haven't applied everything I've learned in the past 8 years, but it's lightyears cleaner than it's been!-P

  • I expect some more fixes and a few small functionality upgrades this summer.
