But professionals don't love Backpack just because it's feature-packed. They also love it because it's ridiculously easy to overwrite a functionality. Generally, you just need to create a function with the right name or create a blade file with the right name. Yes, it can be that easy. See why thousands of Laravel professionals have been using Backpack, every day, since 2016.
The GIF above should give you with a good idea about what Backpack will help you build. But you can also see it in action in our live demo, to get a deeper understanding of how Backpack admin panels look & feel and the amount of features it provides.
Start with the "Getting Started" series in our docs. We try to nudge you towards creating a Backpack acccount, but you don't need one, if you're just trying it out.
Alternatively, if you don't have 20 minutes right now, subscribe to our drip email tutorial. You'll receive one email per day, for 5 days, 5 minutes each. By the end, you'll be familiar with how Backpack works, and be able to create admin panels for your Laravel apps.
Security updates and breaking changes
If you're using Backpack in production, please subscribe to the Backpack Newsletter so you can find out about any security updates, breaking changes or major features. We never ever share your email with anyone & we try to send as few emails as possible (1-4 emails per year). We hate unsolicited email too. But... you know... you're building an admin panel, security should be something you're up-to-date with.

We've spend more than 10.000 hours creating, polishing and maintaining administration panels on Laravel. We've developed e-Commerce, e-Learning, ERPs, social networks, payment gateways and much more. We've worked on admin panels so much, that we've created one of the most popular packages for Laravel - just from making public what was repetitive in our projects.
If you are looking for a developer/team to help you build an admin panel on Laravel, look no further. You'll have a difficult time finding someone with more experience & enthusiasm for admin panels. This is what we do. Contact us.
