Try it out.

The fastest way to see if you like Backpack is to install a working demo with all Backpack packages pre-installed.

By using Backpack, you agree to its YUMMY License, which basically says you're free to use Backpack for non-commercial purposes (testing, NGOs, university, personal projects), but need to pay for commercial use (clients, employers, etc).
Step 1. Clone the demo repository

git clone backpack-demo

Step 2. Configure your .env file with your database information.
Step 3. Install the packages and setup the database.

composer install
php artisan key:generate
php artisan migrate

Step 4. Create a user & play around.

Go to http://localhost/backpack-demo/public/admin and register a user. In production, you might want to disable new user registration in your config/backpack/base.php config file.

Step 5. Read up.

To really benefit from Backpack you have to understand it. But it's ok, it only takes 3-5 minutes. Read the introduction and headlines in How CRUD works to find out about its core features, then skim through an example of a CRUD. You should then be able to build a custom CRUD yourself using Backpack\Generators.

Step 6. Play with the monsters.

This demo comes with an example entity - "Monster" - to show off most Backpack features and allow you to easily play around. Look for the Monster model, request, migration and controller. If you've read the articles we recommended above, you should be ready to play around.

* For projects that will go into production, please use the manual installation process. It takes more time, but it will prevent you from having installed packages that you don't actually use. And monsters. You don't want monsters, do you?
