Install

In your terminal:

# install the package
composer require backpack/settings

# run the migration
php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Backpack\Settings\SettingsServiceProvider"
php artisan migrate

# [optional] add a menu item for it to the sidebar_content file
php artisan backpack:base:add-sidebar-content "<li><a href='{{ url(config('backpack.base.route_prefix', 'admin') . '/setting') }}'><i class='fa fa-cog'></i> <span>Settings</span></a></li>"

# [optional] insert some example dummy data to the database
php artisan db:seed --class="Backpack\Settings\database\seeds\SettingsTableSeeder"

Usage

End user

Add it to the menu or access it by its route: application/admin/setting

Programmer

Use it like you would any config value in a virtual settings.php file. Except the values are stored in the database and fetched on boot, instead of being stored in a file.

Config::get('settings.contact_email')

Add new settings

Settings are stored in the database in the "settings" table. Its columns are:

There is no interface available to add new settings. They are added by the developer directly in the database, since the Backpack CRUD field configuration is a bit complicated. See the field types and their configuration code on https://laravel-backpack.readme.io/docs

Overwriting Functionality

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

  • create a routes/backpack/settings.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;

Security

If you discover any security related issues, please email hello@tabacitu.ro instead of using the issue tracker.
