School Management and Accounting Software shield

We like to challenge the quality of what we build to make it better. To do so, we try to make the product intuitive, beautiful, and user friendly. Innovation and hard work help to fulfill these requirements. I believe in order to innovate we need to think differently. A few months ago I discovered there was no open source free school management software that met my quality standards. I happen to know a bit of programming so I decided to make one. I also believe that working with more people can push the standard higher than working alone. So I decided to make it open source and free.

How to Start

Using a Container:

Docker is now supported.

You need to change Docker configuration files according to your need.

  • Change following lines in docker-compose.yml

    MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: your password
    MYSQL_USER: root
    MYSQL_PASSWORD: your password
  • To run this software in Docker containers run sudo docker-compose up -d.

  • Then run sudo docker container ls --all. Copy Nginx Container ID.

  • Then run sudo docker exec -it <container id> bash

  • Run cp .env.example .env and change following lines in .env file

    DB_PASSWORD=your password
  • Run composer install

  • Run php artisan key:generate

  • Run php artisan migrate:fresh --seed

  • Visit http:\\localhost:80.

Not using a Container:

Here are some basic steps to start using this application

Note: Instruction on cached data for Dashboard is given in Good to know segment below.

  • Run php composer.phar install for developer environment and run php composer.phar install --no-dev for production environment to install Laravel packages

  • Create .env file from .env.example and generate APP_KEY using php artisan key:generate

  • Set the database connection configuration and APP_ENV according to your application environment (e.g. local, production) in .env file

  • Laravel Page Speed Package is installed but not activated. If you want to use it to optimize your site automatically which results in a 35%+ optimization. You need to uncomment some lines from Kernel.php file and may need to run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="RenatoMarinho\LaravelPageSpeed\ServiceProvider".


  • To create a Master, go to the database\seeds\UsersTableSeeder.php and change the name, the email and the password settings to your likings. Leave the other settings (role, active, verified) unchanged!

  • Laravel Passport package is included to support API. Key for Passport should be automatically generated by php artisan passport:keys from post-install-cmd script in composer.json or you have to run this manually and to remove this package just follow these steps

    • Remove it from composer.json require dependencies and remove command @php artisan passport:keys from post-install-cmd script
    • Run composer update and composer dump-autoload.
    • And all classes that relies on passport must be edited as well. The most common classes are:
      • app\User.php model, remove the HasApiToken trait.
      • app\Proiders\AuthServiceProvider, remove Passport::routes(); in your boot method.
      • In config/auth.php, change your driver option for api from passport to api authentication
  • To create the tables, run php artisan migrate.

    • If you don't want to use Passport package then remove the Passport Migrations in database migrations table and run command artisan migrate:refresh
  • To seed the tables with fake data, use php artisan db:seed.

  • If you want to run the migration and the seeding together, use php artisan migrate:refresh --seed

  • You must seed database\seeds\UsersTableSeeder.php at least once in order to create the Master account. To do so, follow these steps:

    • comment all the seeders except $this->call(UsersTableSeeder::class); in database\seeds\DatabaseSeeder.php;
    • then comment factory(App\User::class, 200)->create(); in UsersTableSeeder.php.

    So your files will look something like this:

    In database\seeds\DatabaseSeeder.php:


    In database\seeds\UsersTableSeeder.php:

    //factory(App\User::class, 200)->create();
  • Laravel 5 log viewer is used to view Logs using a UI at '' while in development environment.

Create a school and an admin

  • Important: only a master can create a new school and its admins!
  • Login at\login using your Master account credentials
  • Create a new school
  • Create a new admin for the newly created school

Manage a school

  • Important: A master CANNOT manage a school's data!
  • Login as admin at\login
  • Now add data to the school as required.

Good to know

  • Setup your Mail configuration in .env file if you want to send email. Currently registered users are notified by invitation mail if Mail is configured properly.
  • In .env, turn APP_DEBUG to false for production environment.
  • Remove Route::get('logs', '\Rap2hpoutre\LaravelLogViewer\LogViewerController@index'); from routes/web.php while in Production Environment.
  • Cache::remember() generates cache files. To delete expired cache files LaravelCacheGarbageCollector package is used. Run php artisan cache:gc.
  • You can switch to and from maintenance mode by running php artisan up and php artisan down.
  • Dashboard page contents(e.g. Student count, Teacher count, Notice, etc.) are cached because these are not frequently changed. If you don't want these to be cached, just remove the cache lines in index method in app\Http\Controller\HomeController.phplike the following example. So your edit would be something like this:


$classes = \Cache::remember('classes-'.$school_id, $minutes, function () use($school_id) {
   return \App\Myclass::where('school_id', $school_id)


$classes = \App\Myclass::where('school_id', $school_id)

You can do similar for other cache lines.
