##Configurations

To configure the package to meet your needs, you must publish the configuration in your application before you can modify them. Run this artisan command.

php artisan config:publish firalabs/firadmin

The configuration files could now be found in app/config/packages/firalabs/firadmin. Read the description for each configurations to know what you can override.

##Binding models

You need to bind a user and a user role model to your application. By default, the package already provide those. Add this few lines in app/start/global.php

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Application IoC Container binding
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|*/
App::bind('Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository\UserRepositoryInterface', 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository\Eloquent\UserRepository'); //User model
App::bind('Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository\UserRoleRepositoryInterface', 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository\Eloquent\UserRoleRepository'); //User role model

After that, you must set the same user repository has a model in app/config/auth.php

'model' => 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository\Eloquent\UserRepository'

##Migrations

If you use the default models provided in the package, you must run this migration commands.

php artisan auth:reminders
php artisan migrate
php artisan migrate --package="firalabs/firadmin"

##Create default user

You need to have at least one register user in your database. We provided a easy way to create a user using artisan command. Use --role=""administrator"" when setting up a user for the first time.

php artisan create:user [--role[="..."]] username email password

You can also change the role names Firadmin checks on app/config/packages/firalabs/firadmin/config.php.

'roles' => array(
	/*
	 * Grant all privileges to the administrator roles.
	 */
	'administrator'  => true,

	/*
	 * Granted basics CRUD privileges to the user administrator role on the user resource.
	 */
	'user_administrator' => array('user' => array('create', 'read', 'update', 'delete'))
)

##Register dashboard controller

You must set a route to the dashboard admin panel in app/routes.php. We provide a default dashboard controller for testing purpose.

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Register admin controllers
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
*/
Route::group(array ('before' => 'auth', 'prefix' => 'admin' ), function ()
{	
	Route::get('/', 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Controllers\[email protected]');
});

##Facades

We have two available facades:

  • Permissions
  • AjaxRequest

You can add this facade to your app/config/app.php file.

array(
	'aliases' => array(
		'AjaxRequest' => 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Facades\AjaxRequest',
		'Permissions' => 'Firalabs\Firadmin\Facades\Permissions'
	)
);

##Permissions

To handle privileges on the current logged user, simply use this code in your controller action method..

//Check permission
if(Permissions::isAllowed(Auth::user(), 'user', 'read') !== true){
	return Redirect::route('login')
		->with('reason', Lang::get('firadmin::admin.messages.insufficient-permission') . '<br>')
		->with('error', 1);
}

##Ajax Request Documentation coming soon ...

##Admin controller development

When you want to create a new admin controller, simply extend the BaseController provide in the package. Is a example of a dashboard controller create in the folder app/controllers/Admin/DashboardController.php

<?php

use Firalabs\Firadmin\Controllers\BaseController;

/**
 * Default dashboard controller
 */
class Admin_DashboardController extends BaseController {
    
	/**
	 * The current active menu URI
	 * 
	 * @var string
	 */
	public $active_menu = 'admin';

	/**
	 * Get the dashboard
	 */
	public function getIndex()
	{
		//Set layout content
		$this->layout->content = View::make('firadmin::dashboard');
	}
}

##Custom models repositories

You can directly extend those in the packages or simply implement the interfaces provided in Firalabs\Firadmin\Repository.

##Enjoy !!
