A skeleton for creating full featured applications with a dashbaord backend built on top of CakePHP 3.x.

The framework source code can be found here: cakephp/cakephp.

AdminLTE - Admin Control Panel Theme (Bootstrap 3)

"AdminLTE Presentation"

Visit the online documentation for the most updated guide. [ demo ] [ github ]


  1. Download Composer or update composer self-update.
  2. Run php composer.phar create-project --prefer-dist cakephpkitchen/cakeadminlte [app_name].

If Composer is installed globally, run

composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephpkitchen/cakeadminlte

In case you want to use a custom app dir name (e.g. /dash/):

composer create-project --prefer-dist cakephpkitchen/cakeadminlte dash

You can now either use your machine's webserver to view the default home page, or start up the built-in webserver with:

bin/cake server -p 10304

Then visit http://localhost:10304 to see the welcome page.


Since this skeleton is a starting point for your application and various files would have been modified as per your needs, there isn't a way to provide automated upgrades, so you have to do any updates manually.


Read and edit config/app.php and setup the 'Datasources' and any other configuration relevant for your application.


The app skeleton uses a subset of Foundation (v5) CSS framework by default. You can, however, replace it with any other library or custom styles.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
