Via Composer

$ composer require backpack/generators --dev

For Laravel 5.5 - you're done.

For Laravel 5.4 or 5.3 you'll only want to use these generators for local development, so you don't want to update the production providers array in config/app.php. Instead, add the provider in app/Providers/AppServiceProvider.php, like so:

public function register()
    if ($this->app->environment() == 'local') {
        // $this->app->register('Laracasts\Generators\GeneratorsServiceProvider'); // you're using Jeffrey way's generators, too, right?


Open the console and enter one of the commands to generate:

  • Models (available options: --softdelete)
$ php artisan backpack:model {Entity_name}
  • Requests
$ php artisan backpack:request {Entity_name}
  • Views (available options: --plain)
$ php artisan backpack:view {Entity_name}
  • Config files
$ php artisan backpack:config {Entity_name}
  • All files for a new Backpack\CRUD interface:
$ php artisan backpack:crud {Entity_name}
  • A new Backpack\CRUD file:
$ php artisan backpack:crud-controller {Entity_name}
$ php artisan backpack:crud-model {Entity_name}
$ php artisan backpack:crud-request {Entity_name}
