Install

Since NewsCRUD is just a Backpack\CRUD example, you can choose to install it one of two ways.

(A) Download and place files in your application (recommended; remember to also composer require cviebrock/eloquent-sluggable)

or

(B) As a package

The only PRO of installing it as a package is that you may benefit from updates. But the reality is there is very little (if any) bug fixing to do, so you probably won't need to update it, ever.

Installation type (A) - download

  1. Download the latest build.

  2. Paste the 'app' and 'database' folders over your projects (merge them). No file overwrite warnings should come up.

  3. Replace all mentions of 'Backpack\NewsCRUD\app' in the pasted files with your application's namespace ('App' if you haven't changed it):

  • app/Http/Controllers/Admin/ArticleCrudController.php
  • app/Http/Controllers/Admin/CategoryCrudController.php
  • app/Http/Controllers/Admin/TagCrudController.php
  • app/Http/Requests/ArticleRequest.php
  • app/Http/Requests/CategoryRequest.php
  • app/Http/Requests/TagRequest.php
  • app/Models/Article.php
  • app/Models/Category.php
  • app/Models/Tag.php
  1. Run the migration to have the database table we need:
php artisan migrate
  1. Add NewsCRUD to your routes file:
Route::group(['prefix' => config('backpack.base.route_prefix', 'admin'), 'middleware' => ['web', 'auth'], 'namespace' => 'Admin'], function () {
    // Backpack\NewsCRUD
    CRUD::resource('article', 'ArticleCrudController');
    CRUD::resource('category', 'CategoryCrudController');
    CRUD::resource('tag', 'TagCrudController');
});
  1. [optional] Add a menu item for it in resources/views/vendor/backpack/base/inc/sidebar.blade.php or menu.blade.php:
<li class="treeview">
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-newspaper-o"></i> <span>News</span> <i class="fa fa-angle-left pull-right"></i></a>
    <ul class="treeview-menu">
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('article') }}"><i class="fa fa-newspaper-o"></i> <span>Articles</span></a></li>
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('category') }}"><i class="fa fa-list"></i> <span>Categories</span></a></li>
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('tag') }}"><i class="fa fa-tag"></i> <span>Tags</span></a></li>
    </ul>
</li>

Installation type (B) - package

  1. In your terminal, run:
$ composer require backpack/newscrud
  1. Then add the service providers to your config/app.php file:
'Backpack\NewsCRUD\NewsCRUDServiceProvider',
  1. Publish the migration:
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Backpack\NewsCRUD\NewsCRUDServiceProvider"
  1. Run the migration to have the database table we need:
php artisan migrate
  1. [optional] Add a menu item for it in resources/views/vendor/backpack/base/inc/sidebar.blade.php or menu.blade.php:
<li class="treeview">
    <a href="#"><i class="fa fa-newspaper-o"></i> <span>News</span> <i class="fa fa-angle-left pull-right"></i></a>
    <ul class="treeview-menu">
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('article') }}"><i class="fa fa-newspaper-o"></i> <span>Articles</span></a></li>
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('category') }}"><i class="fa fa-list"></i> <span>Categories</span></a></li>
      <li><a href="{{ backpack_url('tag') }}"><i class="fa fa-tag"></i> <span>Tags</span></a></li>
    </ul>
</li>

Change log

Please see CHANGELOG for more information what has changed recently.

Testing

$ composer test

Overwriting functionality

If you need to modify how this works in a project:

  • create a routes/backpack/newscrud.php file; the package will see that, and load your routes file, instead of the one in the package;
  • create controllers/models that extend the ones in the package, and use those in your new routes file;
  • modify anything you'd like in the new controllers/models;
