We've started this new year in full force. Not only have we been working on the next iteration of Backpack (which you'll have access to, if you've purchased 12 months before the launch), but we've also added new features to v5, and done quite a few things in terms of marketing and team building. Let's go through them:


Since our last progress report, we've pushed to:

  • CRUD: 9 bug fixes;
  • PRO: 2 bug fixes + 1 feature (see below)

New Features

Trash Operation (PRO)

What happens if you use SoftDeletes on your Eloquent models? In most cases, our Delete & BulkDelete operations cover everything you need. When the admin deletes an item... they actually soft delete it, so it doesn't get removed from the database, it only gets flagged as deleted. To them it looks like it was deleted... but a system admin can recover it, if needed.

But what if you want to give the admin access to permanently delete an item? Previously, you had to create that functionality yourself. But now... we provide it as part of Backpack PRO.

Thanks to Karan, Jorge and Pedro, our new TrashOperation will help your admin:

  • send an item to the trash;
  • recover an item from the trash;
  • permanently delete an item from the trash;

This is super-helpful when you have superadmins - the functionality above is one line away. And of course... we also provide BulkTrash, BulkRestore and BulkDestroy. Read more about this new functionality in the Trash operation docs.
