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:
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.
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.
If you haven't heard already, we're giving away some premium Laravel stuff. Yes, you heard that right - they're FREE. The contest ends February 3rd, so hurry up, sign up here.
We're proud that we've been able to sponsor and attend the first Laracon Portugal ever. Our team members Antonio and Pedro were there, had a lot of fun and we're very glad to have met some Backpack users, face to face. Thanks for reaching out, we're eager to meet more of you 🙏
Our team members Karan and Mohammad will attend Laracon India. If you're going to participate, reach out to them. They might be rocking some Backpack merch 😉
Thanks for using Backpack. We love doing this for you. Cheers!
