Installation
Before installing hotCoffee make sure you have installed Laravel 5.8 or above and PHP 7.2 or newer.

Step 1: Require the package

The installation process is really simple. Create a new Laravel application and include the package with the following command:
composer require taffovelikoff/hotcoffee

Step 2: Setup the database

Create a new database and add your database credentials to the .env file. Also add your application URL in the APP_URL variable:
APP_URL=http://127.0.0.1:8000/
DB_HOST=localhost
DB_DATABASE=hotcoffee
DB_USERNAME=root
DB_PASSWORD=mypassword

Step 3: Run the installation script

After that you can run an artisan command to finalize the installation.
php artisan hotcoffee:install
The script will ask you if you want to also install the example logic (this includes some example controllers, routes, views and dummy pages for the front-end of your app). Type "yes" or "no" and hit enter to continue.

Step 4: Extend the user model

Edit your User model (usually app/models/User.php) and make the class extend \TaffoVelikoff\HotCoffee\User instead of Authenticatable.
namespace App\Models;
class User extends \TaffoVelikoff\HotCoffee\User
{
//
}

Step 5: Create an admin user

You can now create your first admin user with a simple artisan command:
php artisan hotcoffee:make-admin --name=admin [email protected]

Step 6: Make sure everything went OK

Use php artisan serve to run PHP's built-in development server. The admin panel should be available on this address (or similar): http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin/login Login with your admin credential. 👏 That's it!
