SleepingOwl Admin is an administrative interface builder for Laravel.



  1. Require this package in your composer.json and run composer update:

    composer require laravelrus/sleepingowl:5.6

  2. Run this command in the terminal (if you want to know more about what exactly this command does, see install command documentation):

    $ php artisan sleepingowl:install
  3. After you have to update in composer.json post-update section:


    "post-update-cmd": [
            "php artisan sleepingowl:update",

    NOTE: So if you use a laravel-ide-helper package place sleepingowl:update after it commands:

    "post-update-cmd": [
            "php artisan ide-helper:generate",
            "php artisan ide-helper:meta",
            "php artisan sleepingowl:update",


  1. By default, admin module uses Laravel authentication.

    If you want to use auth, you can run artisan command php artisan make:auth (https://laravel.com/docs/5.3/authentication) and append middleware auth to config/sleeping_owl.php

     'middleware' => ['web', 'auth']
  2. Setting up middleware

    By default auth middleware use default guard, selected in config/auth.php

    'defaults' => [
      'guard' => 'web', <- default
  3. If you are using some package for ACL like (Laratrust, Zizaco Entrust, etc...)

    'middleware' => ['web', 'role:admin'],


    'middleware' => ['web', 'permission:admin'],
