Panel Commands, files & namespaces

The LaravelPanel package adds three new artisan commands. These are panel:crud, panel:createmodel, and panel:createcontroller.

The first command panel:crud is a useful combination of the other two commands, and creates both a new model and a matching controller. The separate panel:createmodel and panel:createcontroller commands provide the flexibility to create models and controllers in any location suited to the project structure.

For all LaravelPanel commands, if the entity name (only) is supplied then LaravelPanel will use default locations that match the base Laravel structure. For models, this is the app folder, and for controllers, the app/Http/Controllers folder


$ php artisan panel:crud Foo will create a new model class Foo, and also a matching controller class FooController. The model file will be app/Foo.php. It will be namespaced as App\Foo and class FOO extends Model; The controller file will be app/Http/Controllers/FooController.php, with a namespace of App\Http\Controllers (Note: the model and the controller then need fleshing out with your code)

Alternative locations for Models and/or Controllers

The default locations for models and controllers may be just fine, especially for small projects! But with a large number of models it may be preferred to keep models and controllers stored elsewhere to fit your project structure. For example, keeping all models in an app/Models folder. This can easily be achieved using the two separate LaravelPanel commands provided.

For example, creating a Post model and PostController. panel:createmodel Models/Post will create the model file app/Models/Post folder, namespaced to App\Models\Post; and panel:createcontroller Blog/PostController will create file app/Http/Controllers/Blog/PostController.php, again with a correct namespace.

If a complete path is supplied to the panel command (starting with /App), that will also be respected. So panel:createmodel /App/Blog/Post and panel:createcontroller /App/Blog/PostController will create both the model and controller files in the app/Blog/ folder.
