Try before you buy.

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

This Laravel installation exists for demo purposes only. In your actual project, you should install Backpack on top of your existing Laravel project, using composer.

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
php artisan db:seed

Step 4. Create a user & click around.

Go to http://localhost/backpack-demo/public/admin, register a user and click around.

In production, you should disable new user registration in your config/backpack/base.php config file. Now could be a good time to check out that file, see what's available.

Step 5. Read up (25 min, tops).

Like any framework, to really benefit from Backpack you have to understand how it works. And we have excellent resources for that. Login with Github in the Backpack members area. The first thing you'll see is our getting started materials. We have a 25-minute text course, an email course (5 min/day, for 5 days) and a 3 minute quick intro. Video course coming soon.

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/emails 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?
