Buy Me A Coffee

This Laravel package makes it possible to set your website in "Under Construction" mode. Only users with the correct 4 digit code can access your site. This package can for example be useful to show your website to a specific client. Everything works out of the box, and it's fully customizable.

If you appreciate my work please give this repo a star or buy me a coffee ^ 🤗.



Begin by installing this package through Composer (Laravel 5.6, 5.7 and 5.8 compatible!).

composer require larsjanssen6/underconstruction

Then the service provider must be installed.

Laravel 5.5+ users: this step may be skipped, as we can auto-register the package with the framework.

// config/app.php

'providers' => [
    // ...

The \LarsJanssen\UnderConstruction\UnderConstruction::class middleware must be registered in the kernel:


protected $routeMiddleware = [
  // ...
  'under-construction' => \LarsJanssen\UnderConstruction\UnderConstruction::class,


Publish the default configuration file.

php artisan vendor:publish

# Or...

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="LarsJanssen\UnderConstruction\UnderConstructionServiceProvider"

This package is fully customizable. This is the content of the published config file under-construction.php:


return [

     * Activate under construction mode.
    'enabled' => env('UNDER_CONSTRUCTION_ENABLED', true),

     * Hash for the current pin code
    'hash' => env('UNDER_CONSTRUCTION_HASH', null),

     * Under construction title.
    'title' => 'Under Construction',

     * Back button translation.
    'back-button' => 'back',

    * Show button translation.
    'show-button' => 'show',

     * Hide button translation.
    'hide-button' => 'hide',

     * Show loader.
    'show-loader' => true,

     * Redirect url after a successful login.
    'redirect-url' => '/',

     * Enable throttle (max login attempts).
    'throttle' => true,

        | Throttle settings (only when throttle is true)

        * Set the amount of digits (max 6).
        'total_digits' => 4,

         * Set the maximum number of attempts to allow.
        'max_attempts' => 3,

         * Show attempts left.
        'show_attempts_left' => true,

         * Attempts left message.
        'attempts_message' => 'Attempts left: %i',

         * Too many attempts message.
        'seconds_message' => 'Too many attempts please try again in %i seconds.',

         * Set the number of minutes to disable login.
        'decay_minutes' => 5,

         * Prevent the site from being indexed by Robots when locked
        'lock_robots' => true,


You'll have to set a 4 digit code (you can change this up to 6 in config file). You can do that by running this custom artisan command (in this example the code is 1234 ,you can obviously set another code). It will generate a hash that will be stored in your .env file.

php artisan code:set 1234

You can set routes to be in "Under Construction" mode by using the under-construction-middleware on them.

Route::group(['middleware' => 'under-construction'], function () {
    Route::get('/live-site', function() {
        echo 'content!';

We have included the awesome symfony/thanks composer package as a dev dependency. Let your OS package maintainers know you appreciate them by starring the packages you use. Simply run composer thanks after installing this package. (And not to worry, since it's a dev-dependency it won't be installed in your live environment.)
