Before moving on, please check out the Laravel documentation about its installation, requirements, and configuration.


  • PHP 8.0+
  • PHP GD and EXIF extensions
  • Laravel ^9.0


laravel new app

composer require conedevelopment/root

Running the Install Command

After installing the package, run the root:install command. It will run the migrations and publish the compiled assets that you may override later.

Please note: if you are using Windows, you might open your terminal or development environment as a system administrator.

Also, you may populate your local database with fake data. To do so, pass the --seed flag to the command.

php artisan bazar:root --seed

Publishing Assets

You may want to customize the JS and SASS files. To do so, run the root:publish --tag=root-vendor command.

php artisan root:publish --tag=root-vendor

yarn install && yarn dev

Preparing Storage

Root comes with a media manager out of the box. If you are using the public driver, you may link your storage directory to make your media files visible for users.

php artisan storage:link

Extending the User Model

Root comes with a Cone\Root\Models\User model by default, that provides some functionality by default. Also, it brings the default authentication services; you may keep clean your App\Models\User model and extend the one that comes with Root:

namespace App\Models;

use App\Root\Resources\UserResource;
use Cone\Root\Models\User as Model;
use Cone\Root\Resources\Resource;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Auth\MustVerifyEmail;
use Laravel\Sanctum\HasApiTokens;

class User extends Model implements MustVerifyEmail
    use HasApiTokens;

     * Get the resource representation of the model.
     * @return \Cone\Root\Resources\Resource
    public static function toResource(): Resource
        return new UserResource(static::class);


You may override the default configuration. To do so, publish the configuration file:

php artisan root:publish --root-config

You can find freshly published config in the config/root.php file.
